Syntronic Chengdu´s R&D team has developed a set of advanced bicycle wheel inspection solutions in the context of a partnership with a world-leading bicycle parts manufacturer. The solutions are based on advanced detection technology.
The unique set of solutions developed by Syntronic’s Chengdu team include strain gauge sensor-based spoke tension detection equipment and single-chip control. This set of solutions can not only detect the performance and quality of the bicycle before it leaves the factory, but also accurately locate abnormalities in faulty bicycles, which simplifies and speeds up the repair process.
A growing need for detection solutions
In the sport equipment industry, there is an increasing need for advanced detection solutions, such as the ones developed by Syntronic in the context of this project.
To bicycle parts manufacturers, ensuring that all types of bicycles have effective transmission and durability is an issue of great importance. Their research and development work is centred around this issue. Testing the quality of bicycle parts before they leave the factory is also an essential step. It is especially important to test the stretch of the bicycle wheel spokes and the distance between the gears. For those reasons, manufacturers are increasingly turning to R&D experts such as Syntronic in search of efficient solutions.
In the bicycle spare part sector, the traditional wheel inspection basically relies on the experience and feel of individual professionals, who carry out tests and adjustments manually. However, with the substantial increase in the production quantity, only relying on manpower for inspection is associated with lower efficiency and a higher error rate.
To ensure product quality and improve inspection efficiency, bicycle component manufacturers increasingly opt for digital transformation solutions. The use of intelligent test equipment aiming to inspect the products out of the factory has been identified as an efficient way forward. Syntronic looks forward to developing more cutting-edge solutions for existing and potential partners who are interested in streamlining their production technique.
