Test rigs

We deliver turnkey test rigs to a wide range of industries. Our test rigs can test entire products, components or investigate specific parts of a product. A test rig can be used in a R&D department or in a production environment. We work with mechanical testing, electronic testing, function testing, automated visual inspection and simulation for testing parts of a system.

We develop the requirement specifications together with you and give feedback on a regular basis to ensure the delivered system is exactly what you want.

The test rigs we create are based on years of experience and components verified in previous systems. The architecture we use has been tested many times and is adapted to suit the needs of the new rig during the design phase.

Concept

At the beginning of a project we go to the drawing board and evaluate the test rig concept. We produce a draft concept for you, or together with you if you want to participate in the process. We can weigh several technical ideas against each other to find out which solutions are best suited for your needs. It’s a creative process where we often bring together several of our experts in different areas to produce a wide variety of possible solutions.

We investigate the current market to find out if there are any solutions that can be integrated into the rig. For example, it can be complete measurement instruments that can be remotely controlled. If this is not the case, we work from the requirements to find suitable sensors and actuators we can develop the system around.
We always look for the most cost-effective solution for you, where we spend time and effort on the things that are unique for your testing needs.

Mechanical and electrical solutions

We complement our expertise by using a well-developed network of partners to ensure and resolve the most varied issues we face. Together we solve the design and manufacture of mechanical and electrical solutions, plan and conduct electrical wiring and program control systems for the test rig.

We take overall responsibility for the solution and for project implementation together with you. It gives you an opportunity for follow-up and to influence the solution if circumstances change.

Automatic control engineering solutions

Different test or measurement rigs require different complex automatic control solutions. Sometimes you need creative solutions that don’t necessarily need to be advanced. Finding a suitable level for the particular rig to be built is important.

We supply systems for controlling everything from motors and flows to more customized measurement equipment.

Robust, flexible systems

The requirements for test systems used in production are different from those used in product development. Robustness and reliability have high priority in production, while flexibility is often prioritized higher for test systems for R&D departments. We build robust systems by using a stable hardware platform and well tested software development models. Using a modular approach, we build flexible systems both for hardware and software.

User-friendly

A good operator interface is an important part of the rigs we deliver. It applies to screen interfaces as well as physical interfaces with buttons, knobs and lights.

Instructions should be intuitive and error messages should be clear. We reduce the risk of operator errors by carefully considering the placement of controls and buttons. We have delivered many test rigs and learned what questions we should ask operators and how to test our own systems to make them as good as possible from a user perspective.

Get involved

We like our customers to be involved in the whole process of developing a test rig. We plan several meetings for technical discussions and project follow-up. It is important you get the system you expect.
