RDP takes the strain.
KSR Engineering Ltd, based in Scunthorpe, specialises
in the development and manufacture of brake, clutch and
accelerator mechanisms for many international car makers.
With facilities in over fourteen countries worldwide, and huge
expansion plans in progress, KSR Engineering is one of the
largest companies in its field and is at the forefront of developments
of car controls including 'fly by wire' technology.
"Nearly all automotive testing is focused primarily on safety issues,"
explains Peter Wilson of KSR, "but we needed to measure the
effects of metal fatigue as well." With no suitable equipment available,
KSR developed their own equipment to monitor potential fatigue
and fault conditions in automotive systems. "We chose RDP¹s
Modular 600 series as the central component for strain gauge
measurement. The monitoring system will be used initially to
analyse load deflections and establish the quality of components."
Several major motor manufacturers have already shown interest
in KSR¹s unique measurement system for their own use putting
RDP¹s strain gauge measurement systems at the cutting-edge
of world-wide automotive research.
