  • MGA Advances Crash And Rollover Testing With Steering Robot

    For decades, MGA has been providing customers superior crash and rollover testing to our customers. Expansions and renovations now give MGA Wisconsin and Alabama operations 5 fully enclosed and climate-controlled crash lanes, and 1 outdoor lane for multi-vehicle crash applications. (more…)

  • MGA expanding Airbag testing in Alabama

    To support automotive manufacturers and their suppliers across North America, MGA Research has shown continued dedication to safety through testing for onboard vehicle safety systems across multiple facilities including Alabama, South Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Canada. The airbags can be deployed in almost any orientation, but typically they are rigidly mounted to a fixture that orients them as if they were installed in the vehicle or the airbags are deployed within a trimmed vehicle. Each facility is also able to test deployments at a variety of temperatures and humidities through the use of various sized chambers and can provide custom fixtures for unique deployment specifications.

  • Dynamic Impact Usage in the Aircraft Industry

    For the past 25 years, MGA has been a leader in testing for the Aircraft industry. Alongside major players in the aerospace industry, MGA modified and developed previous technology to create the inverted pendulum, also known as HIC (Head Injury Criteria) on a stick. This technology stemmed from the need to evaluate the performance of aircraft seatbacks and seat back components. This apparatus, accompanied with the free motion head-form (FMH), is used by MGA to test for blunt trauma as well as sharp or injurious edges per 14 CFR 25.785 (b) & (d) and ANM-03-115-32. Aside from Certification testing (more…)
