Applus+ Laboratories supports the electrification of the automotive industry with investment in testing technology for new energy vehicles.
Through our worldwide network of laboratories, we provide testing and homologation services for most of the onboard electrical and electronic components as well as the vehicle electronic architecture.
Our teams specialize in high voltage systems, testing each of the new components in electric vehicles, from e-motors, inverters, OBC or battery packs, amongst others.
Vehicles structures and components are made to endure loads of all kinds. Fatigue can affect functionality, size, and stability of body elements; acceleration, braking and difficult terrain produce complex vibration patterns that over time affect all components, particularly when combined with other internal factors like pressure or gas heat, or external factors like cold, humidity or corrosion.
In our mechanical and environmental durability labs, we put structures and components endurance to test.
Component stability and durability is intimately tight to the materials used in their fabrication. We can test and characterize all sort of metals, composites, plastic, or coatings to ensure they meet the expectations.
We also test other components, like interior and exterior trims, soft decoration, and plastic and textile parts, ensuring materials quality, environmental durability and chemical emissions.
