Eberspaecher Opens Asia Test Center In Shanghai

Eberspaecher management and guests celebrated the official opening of the Asia Test Center, which bundles the group’s exhaust technology testing expertise and prototyping operations for customers in Asia.

 

Eberspaecher, a global Tier 1 manufacturer of exhaust technology, has expanded its testing competence with the opening of a new Asia Test Center in Shanghai. Eberspaecher management and guests celebrated the official opening of the Asia Test Center, which bundles the group’s exhaust technology testing expertise and prototyping operations for customers in Asia.

Dr. Thomas Waldhier, chief operating officer, Exhaust Technology for Eberspaecher stressed the advantage of the new facility. “We are serving our customers with several production plants in Asia already for many years,” he said. “Now we can offer our longstanding exhaust technology testing expertise locally – a huge milestone for efficient development of next generation exhaust systems.”

The company says this expertise is needed to develop more complex exhaust-emission control systems for the ever-stricter emission norms in Asia, especially in China. Eberspaecher already has solutions for meeting future emission standards for passenger cars as well as commercial vehicles, including close-coupled SCR systems and gasoline particulate filters from other markets.

Testing facilities for vehicles and components

The new test center houses a prototype shop and the possibility to test exhaust systems from the material and component level to system level for passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

“This new center offers us the opportunity to develop and validate exhaust systems under customer-specific conditions and in a much faster time,” said Dr. York Zhao, vice president, Eberspaecher Asia. “This includes but is not limited to SCR performance testing for diesel engines as well as engine- and vehicle-level acoustic testing in a semi-anechoic room.”

In addition to technologies for future emission standards, low noise and high sound quality of exhaust systems are in growing customer demand for the Asian market. The semi-anechoic room utilizes a room-in-room concept solution with ultralow background noise level of 25 dBA.

The Test Center is directly attached to the existing Eberspaecher site in Shanghai, where more than 400 employees develop and manufacture exhaust systems. To serve global customers, Eberspaecher runs other exhaust technology testing sites in Esslingen, Germany, and Novi, Michigan in the U.S.
