How can our facility help you?

The Simcenter Engineering team operates this facility to help companies meet their product performance goals. Whether you are looking to improve comfort, NVH, drivability, or durability, our facility can help you solve your toughest performance engineering challenges.

Attend our virtual experience and you’ll get access to:

  • Central hall, the entrance point of the facility and the largest space within it. It houses a hydraulic car lift for attaching instrumentation for later testing and providing space for temporary setups
  • Chassis dynamometer, which allows for driving tests to be carried out in controlled conditions rather than having to go out onto the road
  • Anechoic chamber, which is a soundproofed room in which noise and vibration experts test the acoustic and vibration performance of an individual component or a complete assembly
  • Calibration lab, where engineers test and calibrate the instruments and sensors that are used throughout the facility and at customer sites to evaluate noise and vibration
  • Component testing hall, which contains various workstations and workbenches where experts carry out tests and reverse engineering on individual components
  • Real time testing hall, where engineers carry out bench testing of physical components in the loop with simulations using Simcenter model-based system testing software packages
  • Project analysis office, where engineers pull together data to perform detailed test-based analysis and troubleshooting, or to create visual models and run simulations
