Product life cycles are becoming shorter in all areas of industry. New products appear on the market faster and faster. This trend is particularly evident in the automotive sector. While not so long ago it still took seven to eight years before a vehicle was ready for production, today it is just two-and-a-half to three years. This places high demands on the development team. Vehicle functions, such as the frequent opening and closing of the door, must be tested quickly and precisely so that any necessary optimisations can be performed on short order. Powerful drive solutions are required that can be integrated into test systems easily, work reliably and are easy to operate.
Kübrich Ingenieurgesellschaft GmbH & Co. KG develops and manufactures test systems for checking and ensuring the functionality and quality of complex mechatronic units. Together with intelligent software, well-tried hardware and high-precision mechanical components, automatically operating test systems for different tasks are created at the company headquarters in Priesendorf, starting with the testing of electric power windows to automatic mirror adjustment, entire car seats or the like. The new μAct actuator is a typical example, and is used in the testing of sun visors, door handles, various unlocking devices, actuators elements etc..
