Multi-Purpose Full Size Inertia-Type Brake Dynamometer

The GIANT 6000 family of brake dynamometers is a high performance test system that has the ability to test all multi-wheel, road-going vehicles, ranging from passenger vehicles SUV’s to high speed railway applications. 

The GIANT 6000 family can be used to test all aspects of the brake system such as the caliper, disc/drum, brake pad and shoes including different assembly fixtures to help optimize each brake system for use in a vehicle. 

Enabling different disc/drum compounds to be tested under thermal fatigue, friction compounds for emission (dust) production and caliper designs for NVH optimization. 

Division: Mechatronics
Manufacturing Company: HORIBA Europe GmbH
