Innovative turnkey solutions for the aerospace industry
What do you need for your test facilities?
R&D Test Systems can deliver tailor-made and standard test systems that fit your requirements. Below you'll find an overview of some of the areas, which we are involved in. If you do not find a suitable area, please contact us and we can discuss the requirements for your next test rig.
The test rig can simulate rain and particle erosion.
The test setup is based on a 3-bladed helicopter principle which ensures conditions very similar to real flight conditions in harsh weather.
A static and fatigue test designed to ensure that the landing gear can withstand worst-case scenarios and avoid failure during the expected life-cycle of the aircraft.
Study and/or simulation which can be used during the development and detailed design of new driveline components to identify critical speeds and delineate keep-out-zones.
High Power and Complex Testing
We can help you select the most suitable type of test for your Device Under Test; from defining the test strategy to development and delivery of the turnkey test system.
Selecting the right test system is highly dependent on your actual testing requirements.
Most of our tailor-made test systems are adjusted through a feasibility study where R&D Test Systems helps develop the best solution based on the customer’s testing requirements and business case.
The size and scope of each feasibility study vary depending on the complexity of the test and the degree of detail.
A feasibility study facilitates the combination of a test specification, a test system concept, a budget and a timeline. By covering these areas before initiating the development process, you ensure an ideal business case.
With different testing strategies, different testing challenges emerge. In some cases, a standard way of testing can be the most optimal solution.
R&D Test Systems has developed a number of standardised test systems. These test systems have become the standard within different industries due to their ability to produce reliable results (high repeatability and reproducibility).
We are involved with:
- Rain erosion test equipment
- Standard equipment for testing of long structures (e.g. wing or fin structures)
- Ring gear test equipment (fatigue testing)
Tailor-made Turnkey Solution
Our system-wide insight and in-house specialists enable us to address the system as a whole and provide the deliverables required for the complete life-cycle of the test system, including project management, hydraulics, mechanics, high voltage engineering, software, electrical engineering, structures and foundations.
By holding all competences in-house, we are able to minimise the risks, reduce the delivery time and deliver a world-class turnkey test system which matches your requirements.
When developing turnkey test systems, we follow a Stage Gate model which ensures that we meet our customers' expectations on time and within budget.
Turnkey Solutions: step by step
Various types of testing are performed to achieve different objectives when testing components or systems. When we design and develop the test rig, we always focus on understanding your specific test needs and deliver a turnkey solution which matches your requirements.
By covering the following steps, we ensure a better match between the right type of test and the test execution.
