Damper Durability Test Systems

Rolling Stock & Railway Test Systems

Subject single or multiple damper specimens to millions of durability cycles, or run short bursts of high-performing cycles to measure damping characteristics.

Our MTS damper durability systems combine highly stiff, self-supporting bases to withstand high inertial loading and selectable three-stage servo valves to perform high-velocity durability testing on even the largest dampers and struts.
