The most comprehensive testing systems in the world

TRW takes huge pride in all of our products, which is why we test them to the extreme before they go to market.

Safety and reliability are two of our core values, and we will never compromise on quality. That’s why all of our parts are tested beyond their reasonable limits, giving drivers peace of mind that they can trust their vehicle all of the time.

Our tests cover the following:

  • Axial and radial elasticity
  • Rotational ability
  • Articulation
  • Breakaway torque
  • Pull and push out forces

We’ll also perform wear, fatigue, functional and rubber tests along with our five environmental tests to ensure that TRW parts can withstand any conditions.


Best of the best

TRW is never happy to rest on past laurels, which is why we took our commercial vehicle steering and suspension products to be tested in Germany by the FRAUNHOFER-INSTITUT independent test centre. Among the TRW parts that stood out from the crowd were the radius rods, tie rods and V-Links. Competing against six other industry leaders, these TRW products excelled, receiving top marks for durability, strength and performance. These tough tests highlighted that TRW products have the ability to perform better for longer under extreme pressure. This industry recognition is evidence that the TRW products can deliver real safety without compromise.

The results were testimony to TRW’s own testing policies, which serve to place the parts in extreme conditions that many drivers will never encounter. This means commercial vehicle drivers can have peace of mind that wherever they travel, because they can trust the TRW parts.

With your customers’ margins increasingly being squeezed and time being money, the need for high quality parts that reduce the amount of time spent off the road is critical. By giving them TRW over cheaper, lesser quality options, you will improve the performance of your customers’ commercial vehicles and save businesses money.
