Accredited tests

Rotating bending
Functional tests

A fatigue test with rotating bending moment that simulates the load condition to which the wheel is subject to when in use.

Rim-rolling test (wheel with tyre)
Functional tests

A fatigue test that allows to evaluate the wheel resistance during rolling under load, as on a road drive.

Impact test (wheel with tyre)
Functional tests

A resilience test to evaluate the resistance of alloy wheels subject to impact through a collision simulation.

Non-destructive tests (liquid penetrant inspection)
Functional tests

Non-destructive tests by means of liquid penetrant inspection to assess materials defects with no product damage.
