on steering-drive components
Steering rods, as a safety-related component, must undergo a defined test procedure both in pre-production testing and during the production process. After compression of the bearing, it is tested for low breakaway and friction torques. Torque sensor 8661 with 10 N*m measuring range is used featuring a high-resolution angular position output, which is evaluated by a DIGIFORCE® 9307. This process step can be used to prevent admissible component tolerances being exceeded.
