RENK Test System, the parent company of RENK Systems Corporation, recently delivered an end-of-line test stand to agricultural equipment manufacturer Krone, located in Spelle, Germany. The system features four dynamic load units that connect to the test vehicle’s four drive hubs to enable drivetrain and brake testing. A fifth load unit connects to the front and rear power take-offs for load-testing these auxiliary outputs.
