Automotive Durability Testing

ISO 17025 accredited testing lab

Testing Capabilities

Automotive durability testing supports component and OEM manufacturers’ evaluation of vehicles, subsystems and components to determine expected life.

Tests use real-world motions and forces to assess and validate design and improve quality. In addition to complete vehicles, automotive durability testing evaluates components including exhaust. chassis, frame, trailer hitches, seating, cooling systems, interiors, and suspension.

Conducting mechanical, electrical and electro-mechanical automotive durability testing provides insights to determine expected product life and identify areas for improving performance. To support automotive OEMs and subsystem manufacturers TÜV SÜD offers a broad range of testing services including cyclic corrosion and cyclic fatigue, electrodynamic vibration, solar irradiation, standard corrosion, and more.

TÜV SÜD’s ISO 17025 accredited testing laboratories offer many services to support automotive durability testing requirements and help you deliver better and safer products.
