hofer Stuttgart extends their testing area
The hofer development centre in Stuttgart will extend their testing area in 2009 by adding two powertrain- test benches.
To be able to suit the needs and wishes of their customers, hofer will have two 440 kW powertrain test benches available in February 2009.
Two wheel machines, a battery simulator, a real time system for street simulation and an integrated automating concept will allow highly flexible functional testing as well as endurance runs.
The second novelty is a test bench fur truck axles. This test bench has a driving power of up to 500kW and three different drives.
That’s means the hofer will have a 100m² large powertrain testing area and will be able to provide their customers optimal conditions to test heavy duty applications.
