Test Stands & Component Testing

Real-time and online measuring & evaluation supports dynamic deformation analysis during function and behavior tests for entire components. GOM's high- & standard-speed measuring systems can be easily integrated in standard test stands such as:

The evaluation of torsion, bending, displacement, velocity and acceleration factors makes it possible to analyze safety risks, part lifetimes, creep & aging processes as well as visual appearance over time and usage. Optical metrology therefore detects bad part behavior and assists root cause analysis, e.g. disturbing noises, vibrations and complex movements, delivering specific feedback for fast design/product improvements. Deformation results are supplied via enhanced reporting:
