If you think driving in the city is tough, you should see our test routes
There is a good reason for this, namely a design and development process that is continuously optimised in order to produce solutions that just keep getting better and better. A process which involves tough testing right from the start.
From CAD to test drives, from dynamometers to test tracks, from entire engines to the smallest of switches. For us, satisfaction is a must, not a virtue. Some of the tests sound unusual, like the endurance test for our indicator stalk which is carried out on a special test rig.
Here the component is actuated one million times with twice the normal pressure, and the stalk is only used in production if the switch triggering resistance remains the same throughout the test and there are no signs of material fatigue at the end of the test.
Many people believe that such meticulous attention to detail is over the top, we see it as an expression of our understanding of quality, all of which helps to ensure that you will enjoy working with the Atego for a very long time to come. In our opinion, you can never cut corners when it comes to quality.
