2018 Show Report

Proving yet again that Automotive Testing Expo in Novi, MI, USA – now in its 16th year – remains the must-attend event for everyone involved in full vehicle and component-level testing and development, this year’s show saw more than 330 exhibitors display their latest concepts and innovations to more than 5,500 visitors live on the show floor.

Among the exclusive technology debuts at the Suburban Collection Showplace was AxialTQ, a next-generation torque measurement device by Interface. Featuring a rotor, high-precision sensing element technology and state-of-the-art electronics, AxialTQ was developed in collaboration with end users who shared their wish lists for operational priorities, user interface, design, features, real-word field issues and more.

Specifically designed for the automotive industry, AxialTQ has the ability to use simultaneous analog and digital outputs to enable real-time control and data collection. Implementation of an axial gap, as opposed to a radial gap, means there is minimized concerned that the shaft, rotor and stator will make contact, significantly reducing the possibility of damaging the system.

“Interface is breaking new ground in several areas with the AxialTQ torque measurement system,” said Jake Shaffer, senior product manager, Interface. “The engineering experience and expertise that went into the development of this product has allowed us to produce an industry-leading system that addresses the most pressing needs in today’s market.”
