Flat-Trac® Moving Belt Technology
Patented, high-fidelity Flat-Trac Moving Belt Technology has been deployed worldwide for decades across a diverse range of MTS test solutions, including tire test systems, full-vehicle roadways, and wind tunnel rolling road systems for both ground vehicles and aircraft.
Engineered to drive wheels over simulated flat road surfaces, Flat-Trac systems maintain near-perfect belt flatness, even in excess of 320 kph. They accommodate spinning tires to create a realistic vehicle-to-road interface, resulting in higher fidelity simulation. To maintain belt integrity and position at high speeds and under dynamic loading, Flat-Trac systems use stainless steel belts and proprietary bearing, belt tracking and tensioning technologies.
