P13226: Power Steering Test Stand


Project Summary Project Information

"Since its founding in 1987 Maval Manufacturing has been a world leader in the remanufacturing of power rack and pinion systems and related components.“ In 2007 Maval Manufacturing launched its Wicked Bilt brand focusing on steering solutions, including electric power steering (EPS) for UTVs. Maval Manufacturing has an existing test bench to evaluate the performance of EPS units. The Senior Design team is tasked with designing, and constructing a test stand with much more capability than the existing test bench. The test stand needs to perform a series of tests to determine if the unit performs to the required specifications before shipment. The collected data will also need to be stored for future reference.
