FronTone DED

Test system for the performance of roof crush tests acc. to FMVSS216 and IIHS


The test rig is designed as movable portal, due to this the positioning is greatly simplified. The portal can be moved in x-, in y- and in z-direction, whereby the swivelling is continuously adjustable. The traverse path in x-direction can be adjusted according to the customers' specific requirements.

Furthermore, FronTone DED provides many other benefits:

  • Tension and pressure tests up to 200 kN.
  • Performance of individual test specifications.
  • Inspection of both vehicle sides with one setting.
