IMV will install a water cooled large vibration test system with a force rating of 350 kN at Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC), an automotive development company in Shanghai, China in 2020.
The world premium K350 has a displacement of 76.2 mm p-p and a shock velocity rating of 3.5 m/s. This makes the K350 capable of a 100 g, 11 ms shock pulse with exceptional force rating.
The K350 will be installed in the next-generation electric vehicle development and evaluation center which is currently being built by PATAC. The vibration evaluation test for batteries or motors of electric vehicle is possible and a large table (table size : horizontal 3 x 3 m, vertical 3 x 2.3 m) enables to support vibration tests of large batteries for a bus.
We expect that it can be widely used for battery testing of EV vehicles, which are expected to be increasingly in demand in the future.
The Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (or PATAC) is a joint venture between General Motors and SAIC Motor. It is a design and engineering center in Pudong, Shanghai, China, and is involved in engineering for Shanghai GM products, but also functions as one out of six technical development and design centers worldwide of General Motors.
