Component Testing

Description

Component Testing Lab, carries out performance and durability tests of vehicle components, including vehicle wheels, safety belts, child restraint systems and flammbility of interior materials. It is accredited by BSMI, (Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection), for alloy wheels and child restraint systems, VSCC (Vehicle Safety Certification Center) ,for safety belts and flammbility of interior materials. The lab also cooperate with IDIADA of Spain,IQA of Brazil , AMECA of U.S.A. and TUV SUD of Czech for component certification test,such as wheel,child restraint system and safety belt. Besides, the lab has abundant testing experience and cooperates with CAE to provide comprehensive analysis and improvement service of above products.
