Mecmesin Solutions for the Automotive Industry

Mecmesin has more than 35 years experience in helping automotive OEMs and their component suppliers with their force and torque testing requirements. Our test systems are used to perform a wide range of tests on all types of interior and exterior vehicle materials and components including tensile, compression, peel/adhesion, wire terminal strength and torque tests.

Around the world many automotive OEMS and tier one and two suppliers already use Mecmesin test equipment to:

  • Monitor consistency of components and materials performance from design to tooling to manufacture
  • Evaluate supplier build quality by batch testing goods-in
  • Identify component defects, minimise rejects and improve production throughput
  • Ensure compliance with stringent industry safety standards e.g. ASTM, BS, DIN and ISO

Key Benefits:

  • Confidence – from checking calibrated tooling, to component and assembly testing
  • Consistency – between plants and suppliers, at production line level
  • Conformance – the right equipment to test to industry standards
  • Precision – accurate testing of all components, from membrane switches to torsion bars
  • Performance – quality assurance across the entire product range
  • Traceability – sample tagging and operator identification for batch testing and analysis
  • Responsiveness – rapid test programming, switching between tests and sample changing
  • Reliability – protect your brand, wherever you are in the manufacturing chain
  • Service – expert advice and custom engineered solutions
