Success by Modular Design

The Key — Easy to Extend Durable Technology

Airbag testing technology is always in progress. Some of the oldest HuDe airbag deployment systems are from the early 90‘s and still in operation. Of course by technical progress the systems are improved year by year. New series of high speed cameras, full automatic test sample handling and many additional firing channels with modern data acquisition components keep the HuDe systems running for a long life. If an airbag deployment test laboratory shall be extended by a dynamic impact test system—no problem. Common use of the existing core components in addition with new PLC controlled test hardware, this is the best way to get best performance by clear investment.
