Damper Development Facility
The Damper Development Facility incorporates the latest rig technology, along with the ability to evaluate and measure a vehicle’s performance using HORIBA MIRA’s Proving Ground and K&C rig, enables enhanced simulation model correlation.
Within the overall damper facility, there is a workshop containing a vehicle geometry alignment rig, 2-post ramp and a damper laboratory.
The damper laboratory contains an MTS 6K-EMA with electromagnetic actuation in a temperature controlled, clean room environment.
The facility has a multitude of amenities including a nitrogen filling station, laboratory lighting, stainless steel worktops, spray cleaning downdraft cabinet, high pressure parts washer, and spring compressor.
Customers can use this facility and access a variety of different support levels from ‘Full Service’ – incorporating technician support to strip down / fit, a ride engineer to conduct vehicle assessments, and a vehicle dynamics expert for development, to an ‘Access Only’ arrangement.
Whatever the project requirement, HORIBA MIRA is well placed to support your activity and enhance your project delivery.
