Automotive Wheel Fatigue Testing Market Introduction

Automotive wheels are an integral part of a vehicle. Being subjected to high loads and pressure, the durability of automotive wheels must be checked periodically to ensure the safe operation of the vehicle. With the rotation of automotive wheels, the radial load on the automotive wheels becomes a cyclic load. The implications of radial fatigue load on automotive wheels necessitate automotive wheel fatigue testing to ensure the structural integrity of wheels. Thereby, automotive wheel fatigue testing is imperative for examining the strength as well as fatigue resistance of automotive wheels.

Various types of automotive fatigue testing equipment are used to perform different types of tests, such as the concerning fatigue test and the radial fatigue test. The concerning fatigue test is carried out to examine the structural performance of wheels, and radial fatigue test is carried out to simulate concerning under dynamic loads. Leading manufacturers in the automotive wheel fatigue testing market are introducing innovative testing equipment to suit specific testing requirements for different types of vehicles that need to be tested.
