Axle Carrier Fixture (ACF) System
The MTS Axle Carrier Fixture (ACF) System accurately replicates real-world boundary conditions for vehicle axle/steering assemblies during chassis or suspension evaluation. The ACF system is engineered for seamless integration into a variety of test systems, including MTS K&C and DK&C deflection measurement systems, Flat-Trac Roadways (Dynamometer, Ride Comfort and Handling).
ACF systems can be configured for basic integration (mechanical only) or full axle and steering subsystem integration, which can include motion input, specimen instrumentation, independent data collection, and incorporation of ECUs.
ACF systems can be integrated into hybrid simulations on one or multiple axles for virtual full vehicle testing/evaluation with only a sub-system of parts. An optional human input assembly allows the ACF system to be used for subjective evaluation of the axle and steering assembly components.
