Automotive Parts industry is a very famous industry which is concerned with the manufacturing, distribution, retailing and installation of vehicle parts, equipment. With the wide usage of automotive parts by a large number of people, the manufacturers need to test the quality of each and every component before offering it to the customers because a minor mistake in the components can become a cause of a major risk. The quality of these components can be determined by using high-quality testing instruments.
Presto Stantest, a leading global manufacturer of testing instruments, offers a wide range of Automotive Parts Testing Instruments. Owing a rich experience in industrial testing instruments Presto ensures that the products are manufactured in accordance with the industrial requirements and standards. To test the quality of the automotive parts, a wide assortment of automotive testing machines are introduced to fulfill the requirement of quality assurance to perform various types of tests such as vibration testing, corrosion testing, thermal shock testing, environmental testing, chemical testing, tensile strength measurement and so forth. The entire product line needs to be tested rigorously to produce high-quality products using user-friendly, sophisticated and time-tested testing devices. Let’s discuss the types of testing which are performed in Automobile Industries:
Chemical Testing for Automotive
Vehicles usually face huge risks every time they hit the road, although this danger cannot be eliminated completely, it is necessary to perform chemical testing of vehicles and its components to ascertain that the vehicles can function easily at the time of use. We offer tests which offer highly accurate chemical analysis of plastics, metals, and non-metallic products to ensure that the vehicles and other automotive parts that are manufactured must adhere to stringent quality standards.
Different environmental conditions have different effects on the vehicles and on their parts. In extremely hot weather the battery of the vehicles can get overheated which considerably leave a negative impact on the engine. Similarly, in cold weather, the motor oil gets thick and causes the engine to get all work up which also drop down the working efficiency of the battery. To test the same, thermal shock testing is performed to check whether the vehicle part can withstand sudden change in temperatures or not.
Humidity Resistance Test
Automobiles encounter humid weather conditions and high temperatures that severely affect the components, body, and the protective layer. Presto offers testing facilities which provide highly simulated a corrosive environment for measuring the degree of resistance that a vehicle possesses. To perform the test, various environmental chambers, humidity test chambers are provided that helps to create an artificial exposure for the automotive parts inside the laboratories to test the quality of the products and the effect of different weather conditions on the products.
To make the automotive parts sturdy, it is necessary to ensure the tensile strength of each and every part of the vehicle. The tensile strength of a product measure the maximum force a material can endure before reaching the point of breaking. Automotive parts are made up of glass, plastics, and metals are subjected to all sorts of forces, weights, and stresses. Hence, it is necessary to measure the endurance capacity of the products. Vehicles require sufficient amount of tensile strength to sustain themselves in the situation of accidents and collisions. Therefore, measuring the tensile strength of each and every component is a must to test to ensure the safety of the vehicle as per the industrial standards.
Salt Spray Test
When automobiles hit the road, they face many air pollutants and different weather conditions. The outer part of the vehicles is 80% made up of metal which faces corrosion and deterioration when coming in contact with oceanic, salty and foggy environments. Therefore, salt spray testing is done on automotive to measure the degree of resistance of metallic body when possessing against corrosive salts. This test helps the manufacturers in automotive industries to evaluate the suitability of the coatings and a protective layer of the metals in the highly corrosive environment.
Heat/ Thermal resistance test
The high temperature of environment majorly affects the automobiles. Overheating reduce the working life of batteries and the air conditioning system also gets overworked and causes excess pressure to its engine, along with that the shielding film on the outer body of the vehicle corrodes. It is vital for vehicle owners to estimate the maximum thermal resistance of a vehicle using heat/thermal resistance test. This test creates the temperature between 20°C to 1200°C as per the requirements to determine the effect of low and high temperatures on the plating and coating of the vehicles.
