The order is valued at over three hundred and fifty thousand euros.
“We are very proud of the continued confidence our customer has shown in us for delivering these types of production test systems. We have previously delivered similar systems designed for the customer's operations in Asia and South America, so I view this new commission as proof that we have done well,” says Anders Nilsson, Managing Director of HiQ Mälardalen.
The new order is a step in standardising the production testing of engines with the ultimate goal that all the vehicle manufacturer's group subsidiaries will eventually test engines in production in the same way.
In the new system, the test software senses which type of engine is to be tested and then automatically performs the entire test cycle. The system manages and controls all external systems needed to conduct engine tests. When the test is completed, the test results and the required readings are sent to a central database that is then used in global testing operations.
“HiQ has extensive experience working with various stakeholders in the automotive industry. This includes active safety and infotainment areas, where HiQ is really at the cutting edge. In addition, we have worked for more than sixteen years developing systems that ensure safe and high-quality testing processes. The automotive industry has a number of exciting opportunities and challenges ahead of it and we look forward to contributing our expertise along the way,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.
