Bergstrom installs new test facility

March 22, 2013

LOUISVILLE, KY. Bergstrom announced that it has installed a testing facility and vehicle prep and instrumentation building at its Rockford, IL, headquarters. The lab gives the company to conduct in-house testing.

The testing lab and instrumentation and vehicle prep building compliment Bergstrom’s current thermal testing, and can prepare vehicles for testing prior to pulling them in the Vehicle Environment Chamber (VEC). This increases VEC test utilization and cuts out wasted time, Bergstrom said.

The lab is also able to test cab pressurization, cab leakage, individual air quantity measurements, additional non VEC required tests, complete prototype installations, NITE system installations, service instruction training and also includes a combined vibration and thermal chamber for HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) for Bergstrom products.

“Bergstrom continues to invest in new, top-of-the-line testing facilities,” said John Bracey, vice president of engineering for Bergstrom. “With the new addition to our lab, and further investments in high speed data acquisition and controls, we continue to make sure our testing provides highly accurate and repeatable results to give honest and reliable performance for your NITE systems and all our products. The new Bergstrom lab is a state-of-the-art facility that keeps us at the forefront of testing capabilities in our industry.”
