This test bench, developed by EST as part of a customer order, is used to analyze bolt joints for wheel mounting on motor vehicles. For this case of application EST designed among other functionalities a so-called measuring hub with integrated sensors. With this hub and downstream system amplifiers the behavior of the complete bolted assembly can be monitored using an EST system software package. This test bench allows to simulate the load on the bolted assembly as it occurs under driving conditions.
