The past couple of years have been an exciting time for Link Engineering Company in China. Through our experience and dedication, we created one of the best testing Laboratories in Asia Pacific in terms of Equipment, Testing and Support. As always, our customer’s requirements were at the forefront of the development process: to deliver highest standard, innovative testing solutions. Through hard work and commitment, LINK has managed to stay ahead of the changing industry demands.
The LINK facility provides cutting edge testing technology such as vehicle testing, a wheel impact test system, and a biaxial wheel test system. Additional Vmax 4000 vehicle data acquisition systems will be added to our local inventory to support our full turnkey test projects at our facilities in Shanghai and Huangshan, which can also be rented out to customers. The wheel impact test system expands on our local wheel testing services already provided, the impact test system is able to simulate impact conditions on the test part. Multiple fixtures can support the wheel in various positions to simulate curb or pothole impact. For the first time, in the Asia Pacific region, LINK is introducing Servo-Hydraulic Actuators and a Hydraulic pump system to our testing facility by the end of the 3rd quarter.
With the addition of new Servo-Hydraulic systems, we are introducing two new capabilities to our local support. The first is expanded testing services capability for a wide range of test components, where we are able to build fixtures locally to support customized test conditions for durability and fatigue testing. The second added capability is introducing local repair services for hydraulic actuators. Worn down actuators can now be fixed and refinished with the shafts recoated.
Staying ahead of market demands is what makes LINK testing facilities one of a kind. The expansion of our capabilities in China is only the beginning. We will continue to improve our facility to offer our customers the latest in testing capabilities. Our new Servo-Hydraulic capabilities is a huge milestone for LINK and represents our commitment and dedication to our customers. This addition builds on our comprehensive brake system test facilities, which have continued to expand since 2011.
