3D printing is playing an increasingly important role in producing motor vehicles. For the manufacturing of sports cars and exclusive vehicles, more and more parts are not only used for developing or testing prototypes, but also as functional components in production vehicles.
BSR are all noises that are produced by components and assemblies in the motor vehicle. BSR testing, also called a noise and rattle test, is an acoustic method from the automotive industry and is used to measure the volume of these noises. A realistic situation with corresponding vibrations is simulated and the volume of the noise is then measured. The technical challenge for the vehicle and component engineers is to identify the ‘noisy’ components and replace them with a quieter solution wherever possible.
Many requirements are clearly defined for the development of a laboratory instrument. Anyone who wants to build or optimise laboratory equipment or offer new laboratory technology is always faced with the same task. The new device must offer at least the following, regardless of the task it is to perform: Reliability Productivity Reproducible and documentable […]
Design freedom and fast reaction times are commonplace in development departments in the automotive industry. Anyone who can react quickly to new requirements gains competitive advantages. Additive manufacturing and the automotive industry, which benefits from flexibility and speed, are made for each other. Free design possibilities, short delivery times and cost efficiency are only a […]
What is fogging? Generally speaking, fogging refers to the outgassing of individual material parts that condense in the surroundings of the component. Usually, the fogging effect is associated with heated living spaces. Here, black-dust settlements occur in flats during the heating period. Typical signs of fogging are planar black coating or black dust that sticks […]
