Testing / CAE


By validating products and product features at an early stage, development periods are shortened and development costs reduced. Our CAE experts take over responsibility for the functional design of components, systems and complete vehicles.

Dimensional management

Gap dimensions are a decisive quality feature with customers. EDAG dimensional management sets itself the challenge of 'permitting' large inividual component tolerance while at the same time complying with geometrical target specifications for gap dimensions. The advantage to you is obvious - the high, reproducible geometric quality of your products.

    • Definition, documentation and visualisation of geometric target specifications:
    • Definition of reference point systems (RPS) and documentation
    • Creation of clamping and fixing concepts
    • Conducting three-dimensional tolerance calculations/simulations
    • Rigid body simulation (rigid body analysis)
    • Tolerance simulation taking component deformation into account
    • Tolerance analyses to detect drivers for tolerance and for targeted product and process optimisation
    • Visualisation of the tolerance variations
    • Toleration of components (GD&T) in accordance with DIN ISO 1101 and ASME

Test Laboratories

Components come under heavy pressure during the useful life of the vehicle. We have the experience and a wide range of test equipment and facilities to guarantee functionality and durability.

The accredited EDAG "Accredited Test Centers" are a USP in the market. We have been granted flexible accreditation, attesting to our competence to test in accordance with stipulated specifications and standards.

Test systems

Own test facilities give you flexibility. Our experts offer you extensive services and experience in the concept, development, construction, assembly and maintenance of test benches. We take responsibility for the entire process from the analysis of the test activity through to turn-key installation.

    • Development & endurance test stands for electric drive systems and electric drive axles
    • Test benches for traction battery packs, electric axis auxiliary drives (EOL tests)
    • Component test bench for fuel cells
    • Assembled media conditioning devices (including water, oil, water-glycol, R134a, R1234yf, CO2)
    • Test equipment for media carring system components (AdBlue, water-glycol, fuel, etc.)
    • Flow test benches, calibration system for gas sensors
    • Pump test benches, bearing test stands
    • Endurance test stands for: door/flap/lock/seat testing
    • Front area measurement systems & automatic defrost analysis

Complete vehicle validation

The validation and certification process is one of the most important milestones in the process to create a new generation of vehicles. This is where the decision is made as to whether a vehicle, concept or prototype meets the criteria for SOP and complies with legal requirements.

With our expertise in complete vehicle development, we know how it's done.

  • We supervise customers' vehicle development projects, from the preparation of product specifications through to SOP.

    • Detailed competition analysis
    • Development of complete vehicle specifications
    • Creation of complete validation plans
    • Termination of tests on prototypes
    • Complete vehicle testing with approval recommendation
    • Development and validation corrosion protection
    • Coordination and execution of certification tests
    • Support in preparation for homologation processes
