The use of automatic transmission in the automotive industry has become increasingly widespread as customers, even with subcompact cars, demand more luxury.
DURA Automotive Systems Einbeck GmbH makes gear sticks for automatic transmissions. To ensure 100% error-free functionality and consistent high quality, a test concept was developed in cooperation with a system integrator and HBM.
Communication is via Profibus DPV1 between the MP85ADP process monitoring system and the test station PLC. A PC is also available for visualization via the PME Assistant and for storing test results, including all the curve data. Sometimes the storage option of the MMC card in the MP85ADP is used.
“The detailed measurement of force and displacement and the versatile data storage options of the MP85ADP make it very easy for us to meet the stringent requirements of our end customers. We also make use of the on-site training and service offered by HBM.” Dipl.-Ing. Udo Beyland, Project Manager, DURA Automotive Systems Einbeck GmbH, Germany
