Working with a major client within the Automotive Industry in the UK, J&J Pneumatics has developed a safety system for testing tyres. The project involved developing a Pneumatic Control system to test for rapid deflation of Sports Car tyre, at speed.
We designed the tooling to be fitted to a High Performance Alloy Wheel, which was to be fitted to a Sports Car. A car was driven at high speed in test circuit conditions, to enable the tests to be carried out.
The objective of the test was to simulate the effects of a Tyre blow out, and specifically to monitor the performance and stability of the tyre on rim at speed.
The customer stated the system worked extremely well, providing them with specific information relating to the safety performance of the tyre and wheel operating in extreme circumstances.
