Measuring Techniques

To reduce time-consuming vehicle tests out in the field, Arco’s Marktoberdorf location implemented one of the most modern all-wheel chassis test rigs with driving wind simulation in only 14 months, with its industry partners Renk Test System and Mahr. Concerning flexibility and performance ability, the all-wheel chassis test rig caps the complete pallet of the enterprise. Total-vehicle inspection of the tractors under the precisely defined experimental conditions make a test stand necessary which can realistically simulate all load conditions of a tractor. Contrary to in-field tests, test results on the test rig can impact the development of the vehicles in the short term.


Test drives in-country and in foreign countries are usually expensive, time-intensive, and not always possible, on seasonal grounds. Often this demands examinations of components of new vehicles in a development stage, in which the vehicle is not yet available in its complete form. Furthermore, with...
