Automotive engineering is a complex area incorporating elements of mechanical, electrical, software and safety engineering. Stringent performance and safety-critical criteria must be met to produce successful vehicles.

You might be a supplier of components, sub-assemblies or replacement parts, or an OEM brand manufacturer. In all cases, your reputation depends on compliance with industry standards, internal specifications and customer expectations at every level.

Automotive power-train, chassis, electrical, trim and ancillary sub-systems often require complex test procedures.

Our industry-specific test solutions for automotive sector customers include:

  • ergonomic efforts involved in opening, closing and adjusting doors, windows and other architecture
  • forces defining the performance of electrical system components
  • torque to actuate rotary controls
  • forces to actuate dashboard buttons
  • compression and tensile properties of springs
  • resiliance of flexible plastic and rubber components

Fast and accurate measurement with reliable force and torque testing equipment, is essential for controlling the mechanical strength and quality of your products, assuring safety and brand perception.

Mecmesin testing solutions are used by leading manufacturers and engineering companies across the world, whether it be at the component, assembly or full build levels.


We also have a wealth of experience in the more general transport industry sector.

“The MultiTest 2.5-i is very reliable and we have had no problems since we purchased it. Because it’s failure-free, accurate and has intuitive operation (very user-friendly software) it’s superior to the older control system from another supplier. It’s also worth to mention the after-sales support from ITA, Mecmesin’s Polish Distributor, is quick and efficient.”

Historically, SFS intec UK has had to rely on our colleagues in Switzerland for all our product testing and reporting needs. Whilst this produced efficient results, it became apparent that we required a more time friendly and responsive solution for our local customers, so we decided to bring it in-house. Now, with the use of Mecmesin machinery which has been integrated into our facility at Leeds, we are able to offer an additional tailored ‘testing’ service for our UK customers, often much more quickly, whilst producing detailed results and accurate data.
