Test benches and test bench automation from a single source

At the Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2019 KRATZER AUTOMATION presents for the first time since the acquisition of Hofmann TeSys Prüftechnik GmbH and Hofmann TeSys UK Ltd. its complete range of solutions for drive and component test benches for conventional and electrified drives in the automotive industry.

With the takeover of Hofmann TeSys Prüftechnik GmbH and its British sister company Hofmann TeSys UK Ltd., KRATZER AUTOMATION AG integrates the leading supplier of roller test benches into its company portfolio. Hofmann TeSys Prüftechnik GmbH is a manufacturer and supplier of vehicle test benches for use in production, research and development. The company specialises in products for development and end-of-line testing - such as roller test benches, vibration test benches and chassis alignment benches.

At Automotive Testing Expo Europe an additional focus will be on test bench automation with PAtools TX and testXplorer:

From test bay management to test order execution, including data provision and archiving, testXplorer and PAtools TX offer end-to-end scalable solutions along the entire test order workflow. PAtools TX offers the necessary scalability and flexibility for different test bench types. This makes it possible to control and manage test centers with engine test benches, turbocharger test benches or component test benches, as well as battery and drive test benches for electric or hybrid drives.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our booth: Hall 10 - Stand 1232.
