Testing and Validation

With laboratory facilities in each of our manufacturing locations, we undertake extensive physical testing and validation for thermostat assemblies and elements, mechanical safety critical assemblies and hydraulic steering.

We also assign substantial amounts of time to CMM measurement and predictive hydraulic flow testing with physical evaluation of designs through CAE and FEA simulations.

Whether it’s cables, jacks and pedal boxes, or parking brakes, thermostat housing and spare wheel carriers, everything we manufacture is tested and validated to meet our customers specific requirements.

Magal Engineering recognises the need to adhere to the Association of the German Automotive Industry customer specific requirements where required and, in doing so, provide qualified VDA 6.3 process auditor support across the Magal Group.

Regular process auditing to this methodology enables sustained adherence to standardized processes, with the objective of ensuring Verband der Automobilindustrie expectations are consistently achieved for Product Development Process, Serial Production Service Development Process and Providing the Service - see VDA 6.3 (2016).
