Quality suspension components have one way ticket to Mexico F


oundrax’s hardness testing solution aims


for 100 per cent quality of suspension components for a German automotive manufacturer. Foundrax, specialists in


Brinell hardness testing, has just shipped a second bespoke system for the


intricate inspection of automotive suspension components to a full-service supplier of aluminium and plastic automotive solutions in Mexico. A supplier of high-quality automotive parts


that include aluminium powertrain, structural and transmission components have international automotive manufacturers across the world. Last year, the company commissioned Foundrax to address a complex requirement to test suspension parts being produced for a prestigious German car manufacturer. Pioneers in Brinell hardness testing


equipment, Foundrax designs and manufactures all its own equipment to deliver the highest standards of reliability and repeatability. It is said to be one of the only companies in the world to offer custom built solutions. This made it the perfect partner for the automotive supplier’s intricate component testing


requirement, one that other standard hardness testers on the market simply couldn’t match. The challenge was that the hardness test


location as specified by the car manufacturer was in an extremely tight space, hemmed in on three sides by vertical sections and almost no test area to work with. As many of these parts are hollow, there is no other position which would be strong enough to allow for a reliable test. After discussing the options both remotely


and on site with the customer, Foundrax solved this challenge by developing a customised BRIN400B; a rugged, shop floor Brinell hardness tester with an automatic Brinell microscope to carry out fully automatic indentation and hardness measurement, without operator influence on the test or the results. This robust and reliable machine was


designed with custom features in the form of an extended indenter in order to access the restricted space and an external BRINtronic microscope with a special narrow nose, to enable the customer to measure their indentations. This meant the customer could test exactly where the automotive manufacturer required rather than having to ask for a dispensation to test elsewhere and Foundrax’s solution proved to be a great success
