The automotive industry is very volatile. It is highly competitive, and to survive this industry, one needs to constantly evolve and innovate, especially when it comes to quality, durability, etc. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that the vehicle provides smooth functioning throughout its working life. As the wear and tear endured by a vehicle from time to time are often unpredictable, engineers need to use highly sophisticated and innovative test applications to enhance the performance of their latest products in the most effective and modern way.
How do Dürr’sSomac measurement and test technology help in improving the final assembly solutions?
Dürr offers a reliable and verifiable analysis of the vehicle system and processes. It can detect even the most minor leaks in the vehicle systems before the filling starts.
1. Somac – Control device communication
Testing of modern brake systems with ABS or ESP requires communication with electronic control devices in vehicles.
Dürr’s filling station comes with ABS control via serial communication for the filling of brake systems with the dry hydraulic unit. Furthermore, Dürr offers its long term experience via its diagnostic adapters vport OBD and vport C and the corresponding software components.
The vport C can be equipped with diagnostic plugs for various designs and directly adapted to the ECU.
2. Somac – Process data collection systems – Secure quality
Structured software modules allow the central data collections of your filling and testing equipment and the communication to superior systems.
3. Collect and analyse process data
This system guarantees a reliable and verifiable evaluation of atesting process in production. One can detect changes in the processes at an early stage by the included statistical procedures.
4. Somac – Brake test devices
With the application of Dürr’seasy to handle, wireless brake test devices, the customers receive new flexibility. Moreover, without operator influence, Dürr’s system allows the automatic allocation of test heads and vehicles over various assembly cycles.
The different brake test devices are:
- Brake leak test devices – electric (wlBT – wireless brake tester)
- Measuring kit for brake testing
- Brake leak test devices – pneumatic
Software with self-learning algorithms
Dürr’s Final Assembly Solutions in India supply testing devices for brake testing work with the most comprehensive analysis software available on the market and self-learning algorithms. This software reduces the work expenses, as the work is always targeted for failure reasons. It explains different failure sources, for instance, the air in the brake system or minor leaks. The brake test devices also ascertain mechanical failures for various vehicle models.
Test several vehicles simultaneously
One base station can control several test heads, allowing the customer to lower the investment costs considerably compared to individual stations.
Direct connection with the vport OBD
The corresponding pressure changes and the motion sequences can be recorded within the brake systems through the direct connection of Dürr’s brake test devices with the ABS control module vport OBD. It enables the user to add particular statements to ensure better quality and the characteristics of brake systems.
Special functions such as the parameterisation of actuators and sensors in hybrid vehicles via the combination of brake test devices with control device interfaces can be performed by the customer.
Leak Test and Measurement
Somac® Leak test & leak measurement secure quality by reducing production time.
Variable equipment design
According to the customer’s particular requirements, leak test equipment from Dürr is integrated into the assembly line with movable consoles or fixed equipment. Furthermore,
Dürr consults regarding the integration of leak test equipment in the assembly line of the customer.
Testing of individual components
Dürr’sAutomotive Final Assembly in India provides know-how in testing vehicle systems and components before the filling or installation, certifies a high product quality and records the tests’ results.
