In the automotive world, the name Chery is synonymous with some of the most popular cars around the globe. What drives Chery's increasing success and growing business is our vision and focus on bringing together the best technologies to create products that live up to international standards.
At Chery, a major thrust area has been the development of state-of-the-art testing labs - a zone where we evaluate the competency of our machines by making them undergo the most rigorous tests. An essential phase for each of our cars, to be ready to compete with the best in the market. Our labs constitute the most advanced equipments that test every new car developed on all aspects of performance, safety and impact on the environment.
Meisterbock & Cubing test method, emerged just in the recent years, is often applied to joint venture cars. Meisterbock technology can ensure precision of the body structure and lay a foundation for fine appearance of the vehicle. Cubing technology matches and analyzes the car models, evaluates the seams, surface difference, appearance and other matching features and ensures flawlessness of key details.
Meisterbock and Cubing test methods is applied to every Chery car. We have established a comprehensive process, wherein we give a feedback of errors to the designers, and instruct the assembly process norms. The accurate measurement ensures that part seam of every body module reaches 0.1mm of perfect matching. We also optimize the seams that fail to meet the target values, to ensure overall evenness of each hidden seam and achieve consistent fineness of the vehicle.
Observing the vehicles from the customer's perspective during the development stage of a car, gives us the strategic advantage of delivering excellent quality to consumers.
The world-class Kinematics & Compliance Test Lab introduced from the United States can imitate braking, acceleration, side rolling and other motions and make accurate test for the chassis steering and suspension system in consideration with the local road conditions. As a result, its chassis operation stability can be compared with the similar joint venture brands. The chassis adjustment devices with worth as high as 25 million Yuan aim only to provide high stable operation of every car.
Development of every new car at Chery goes through about 20 tests, far more than the 4-5 tests in line with the industrial standard, and take as much as 48 hours for the process.
Founded in July 2010, C&S Lab is the largest laboratory in Asia covering an area of 32,000m2. The laboratory, equipped with advanced test system, can conduct tests according to Chinese, European and North America, as well as CNCAP of China and EURO N CAP of Europe.
Here, all kinds of crash tests are conducted every day to imitate all kinds of possible traffic accidents that users are exposed to during actual driving. For example, over 50 crash tests had been conducted on Arrizo 7 before its launch to ensure conformity with the five-star safety standards. Since its founding, the Lab has conducted over 2,000 tests of all kinds.
The safety R&D team of Chery is committed to development based on safety performance. Trustworthy quality aims at not only development that is based on standards, but one that is based on safety of the customers.
NVH performance is a key indicator of driving comfort and one of the key evidences to judge auto quality.
Chery NVH laboratory, composed of 8 top branches, ranks first both in China and Asia, both in space and size. A team of over 100 engineers conduct repeated tests and improvements on every new car to find noise from over 3,000 parts. Many trials, correction and tests are conducted to keep the noise level under 38dB.
NVH test aims at harmony and balance rather than just reduction of vibration and noise. It tries to muffle the noise caused by the wind and air-conditioning system in the car.
