  • Towed components
  • Special test stands

The following testing methods are used to develop and approve transmission components:

  • Operational strength tests
  • Dynamic tests
  • Function tests
  • Misfire tests
  • Gear-change tests
  • Wear tests
  • Friction measurements
  • Durability tests
  • Special tests
