As increasingly more sophisticated driver preferences continue to inspire more sophisticated seat-performance specifications, NHK Seating likewise continues to evolve its testing capabilities as a first line of quality control and an underestimated means of cost reduction.
NHK’s laboratory investments provide a full scope of testing capabilities to meet whatever your dimensional, performance and aesthetic specifications might be.
Static testing can produce verification on air-bag deployment, weld integrity, material color, foam rebound, seat durability, safety-component reliability, seat function, user comfort—you name it.
NHK Seating’s next-level testing uses product lifecycle management (PLM) software, coupled with computer-aided engineering (CAE) to conduct fully simulated crash tests.
By importing your 3D seat design into the PLM program, NHK engineers have the limitless ability to manipulate the seat in a digital space, providing remarkable crash-response accuracy, while saving you the material and lab costs associated with actual crash testing.
