Tests and activities of the Laboratory
A test that measures the resistance to the deformation of the bolt holes of the steel wheel.
A test to verify the corrosion resistance of the surface-treated wheel subjected to extreme conditions.
A resilience test to evaluate the resistance of alloy wheels subject to impact through a collision simulation.
Non-destructive tests by means of liquid penetrant inspection to assess materials defects with no product damage.
A test for steel wheels for the evaluation of rim deformation by simulating a frontal contact with obstacles.
A fatigue test that allows to evaluate the wheel resistance during rolling under load, as on a road drive.
A fatigue test with rotating bending moment that simulates the load condition to which the wheel is subject to when in use.
A test to evaluate the harmonic response of the wheel, recording generated frequencies and vibration modes, and how this influences the dynamic behaviour of the vehicle.
A test to measure the static stiffness of the wheel.
A test for the detection of the deformation inside the wheel under load.
3D coordinate-measuring machine for single measures in manual or automatic mode, profiles and surface scans.
A machine to record profiles by means of a touch-probe for the 2-dimensional comparison of real profiles with theoretical ones.
Ideal system for the testing of components and materials such as plastics, elastomers, aluminum, composites, steel, super alloys and more.
A road simulator that applies radial and lateral loads with dynamic variations during the test to evaluate the wheel fatigue resistance.
The dynamometric wheel is mounted to measure the loads and forces the wheel is subjected when operating.
A test that evaluates the surface stress of a component subjected to a load by measuring the material surface strain.
Metal structure analysis
The SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) is a very useful tool in micro and nano-structural investigation. It allows the study of high magnification of surfaces (fractures, topography).
