Ensure the most tactile elements of the vehicle perform

ALPHR Technology has considerable experience in providing assembly and test machines for touchpads, multiple-axis buttons, and keypads. These elements are key to consumer perception of the look and feel of cabin interiors.

Assembly & Test Machines

We design and build machines, both individual cells and rotaries, to test:

  • Climate control 
  • In-car entertainment
  • Door switches
  • Powered seating adjustment 
  • Integrated steering controls 
  • Illuminated LED and LCD panels
  • Audio control buttons and dials 

Automotive Button Testing

Multi-axis automotive button testing includes the following functionalities: 

  • Button actuation response
  • Dual function button testing
  • Button pressing, button release – with force measurement and distance of travel
  • Haptic button testing
  • Button illumination testing – on/off, colour and illumination calibration
  • Communication with module for full function testing

Rotary Knob Testing

Rotary knob testing uses the following methods: 

  • Encoder operation – data rotation action – controlled rotation
  • Rotation torque – with torque measurement
  • Measuring peak and trough torque values for each detent in a 360 degree, clockwise and anticlockwise rotation with torque as low as I  Nm possible
  • Rotary knob button actuation – continuity or data
