dSpace opens new factory for hardware-in-the-loop systems

dSpace New Hudson

 

Electronics company dSpace has opened a new production, testing and shipping facility in New Hudson, Michigan, to help meet growing demands for the production of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation systems.

 

The company, which provides tools for developing, testing and calibrating electronic control units, has relocated its Hardware Engineering Design and Production group to the 21,000ft2 (1,950m2) facility.

 

The floorplan of the new building is divided into five main sections that include a HIL production lab, a testing lab, an office area for engineering, an inventory storage room, and a large shipping area. Other building features include electric static discharge floors, special lighting and optimized airflow.

 

Dr Peter Waeltermann, president of dSpace, said, “The new facility gives us the opportunity to better meet growing demands for our HIL business, while freeing up space for future development within our existing office on Pontiac Trail in Wixom.

 

“It will also allow us to build and test large mechanical test benches [e.g. steering], which is a developing area of interest among our customers. We are excited to be able to offer this capability to our customers.”

 

Philipp Kluck, HIL production manager for dSpace, said, “We are pleased to be able to give our technicians a modern and expanded work space, making it easier for them to maneuver around their systems on new workstations with better lighting and more storage. A proper loading dock and a large shipping area will allow for much easier handling of bigger deliveries.”
