Our Lab is equipped to handle a wide variety of automotive testing and development services. Our Strength and Automotive
Structural Testing services - one of our turnkey validation services - include: Linear and Inverted Pendulum Impactors, 3 Position Head Restraint Static Strength, Head Restraint Dimensional Measurements, Multi-channel and Single Channel Strength Stations, Flammability Testing, Airbag Deployment, and High Speed Video and Analysis.
Flammability testing leverages flame-retardant components to determine whether the components burn slowly. Additionally it checks if they can self-extinguish when they’re no longer in contact with the fire. Thus it’s a critical type of testing that helps to improve the survival chances of passengers in an automobile, airplane, or other vehicles.
Automotive Durability Testing
We are capable of performing a wide variety of automotive tests. These include both mechanical and electrical durability testing featuring numerous controllers and temperature extremes. Our environmental and durability test lab offers: Component Life Cycling, In-Vehicle Cycling, Fatigue Durability, Salt Exposure, and the ability to cycle at temperature extremes.
Any type of durability testing helps assess the durability of the automotive product and/or also that of its individual components. It helps result in a product with steadfast durability and long lifespan.
Our automotive testing labs also include several robotic test cells, single and multi channel loading stations, industry-leading, sophisticated environmental chambers capable of whole vehicle age testing and component performance in severe temperatures and humidity conditions, and much more.
We currently have two fully functional labs operating in Plymouth; one that is situated inside a customer's building and the other located in our own building on Five Mile Road.
Because of our specialization in seating, a lot of what our customers focus on is the comfort of seating. Be it in an automobile cruising the countryside or high above the clouds in a business jet, consumers want to be comfortable in their vehicles. RCO has developed some innovative ways to address these comfort challenges.
Shape & Firmness Replication
Shape & Firmness Replication
For the individual that desires a very specific seat shape, perhaps to match a favorite car or household seat, RCO offers Robostand. This equipment maps the shape and firmness of an existing seat. The data can then be used to replicate the seat for use on an aircraft, providing the passenger with an identical comfort experience.
