Very impressive application, and interesting to see the use of hydraulics on a larger, complex motion system like this.

I agree. In addition to using Motion Controllers for manufacturing processes and driving conveyors, I didn't realize they can be used as test stands. You learn something new everyday. Very nice article.

it is true that programmable motion controls are particularly important for durability testing. This will also reduce complexities in testing  by offering flexibility in testing. I have developed a similar system for floppy drive test automation in the 90s.

 The process of testing any product needs to be rigorous and thorough; this statement is even more true for sensitive products on which people's lives may rely. That said, I agree that some tests end up causing minute damages to the product being tested, damages that may not manifest immediately but end up causing defects in future. As such, the idea of motion controllers in automotive testing is one that should absolutely be embraced with open arms.

To find a good printer in Canada. I would suggest using the following companies: Toronto Printer | Calgary Printer | Winnipeg Printer | Montreal Printer | Regina Printer | Saskatoon Printer | Quebec Printer | Ottawa Printer | Edmonton Printer | Vancouver Printer | These companies provide the best and most affordable price in whole Canada. Other printing companies I suggest would be Print Quote Services | Printing Company | Best Local Printer | Some other local cities have great printers as well such as the following: Charlotte Printing | Dallas Printing | Nashville Printing

Nowadays, it is hard to find quality print trader. This is my recommendation for best print trader in the united states Best Print Trader | Lowest Price Printing Wholesale | Print Outsourcing | Print Broker Trade

Lastly, all print should comes with a state of the art Print Management Software. I would highly recommend this print software tool.
