7-Post Shake Rig
TRE, based in Neustadt, Germany has been successfully commissioned by manufacturers, race teams and private owners to measure vehicles from disciplines such as; Sportscars, GT classes, Touring Cars, Rally and Rally Cross, Formula Student and even F1. This reflects Öhlins own customer base with success throughout the motorsport sphere, highlighted most recently with a stunning 1 - 4 at the Nürburgring 24HR at the Nordschleife, located just 100 metres from Öhlins DTC!
The key to TRE's work is their advanced dynamometer machines, including the flagship 7-Poster Rig specialising in Vertical Dynamics for the ultimate chassis dynamic data acquisition. This state of the art system features sophisticated all-four wheel actuators and three aero loaders to simulate downforce, aerodynamics and braking characteristics.
The facility offers a 'Track Replay' function which is an advanced method of replaying an entire lap around a racetrack of the customer's choosing on the rig (including the Nordschleife). This test is based on real-life measured track data, including aerodynamic forces as well as pitch and roll effects. This offers the possibility to use consistently the exact same lap input without any driver or environmental factors influencing the results. Support during on-track data acquisition is also included.
TRE and the Öhlins Distribution & Test Center in Meuspath at the Nürburgring work closely together developing suspension systems for customers
As part of this partnership, ODTC offers its customers onsite damper development including re-valving according to settings derived from Öhlins in-house simulation software. This combined solution ensures that customers receive a full programme of dynamic analysis and settings optimisation during their visit to TRE. The use of the TRE facility for Öhlins customers reflects the brand's own ongoing commitment to provide the absolute highest level of technical competency.
