6-Axis Performance Lab

CVG’s Multi-Axis Performance and Durability Test Simulator (MAPS) and Biomechanics and Ergonomics Simulation and Test (BEST) laboratories allow our engineers to evaluate how commercial industry vehicles and their components perform in the harshest of working environments.

In the controlled lab setting, our engineers can physically create these stressful conditions—jolts, rough rides, vibration-related problems simulated with maximum thrust of 60,000 pounds and translational stroke of more than 250 mm—to measure wear and tear and develop solutions designed to improve how the rubber meets the road.

Simulations in CVG’s 6-Axis Performance Lab yield useful information in weeks rather than years or tens of thousands of road miles. As a result, performance testing is significantly accelerated.
