Powered Steering Columns Noise and Vibration Production Test

Steering column noise and vibration production test

Electrically operated steering columns and their motor / gear components can produce unacceptable levels of noise and vibration that may only become apparent after installation – a costly warranty issue.

We not only provided engineering consultancy to reduce the problem at source, but also installed a semi-automated version of ProTest to provide 100% production testing of both components and assembled columns. A fully automated system has also been installed on another production line to predict noisy units and to provide vibration statistics for the customer.
