Support Fixtures EAB for Axle Test Rigs
EAB consists of a basic body and modular interchangeable adapter
plates belonging to a specific axle.
individual development, customers provide us with the axle
data where axle components form an interface to their periphery
(i.e. spring strut, shock absorber, auxiliary frame, engine
mounting, control arm......). Based on this information we
manufacture adapters connecting the EAB basic body with the
When the test rig is converted to a new axle, the new adapter
plates are merely mounted to the consoles and the axle can
be installed directly. The kinetic points of the axle are
clearly defined in their position relative to the EAB so that
the KO position can be accurately approached and adjusted.
This makes the setting of the test rig after an axle change
comfortable and quick.
procedure ensures short setting times during axle change,
design changes of axle components or breakage of an axle component
and ensures optimum test stand utilisation.
standard axle fixture can also be used for inspecting individual
components of an axle (i.e. double wishbone, spring strut
etc.) in the axle environment. The adaptation of peripheral
axle components (transmission, drive shafts, oil pan, steering
gear....) can also be realised. As an option the system can
be equipped with mountings for engines for introducing steering
or drive moments.
