Bridgestone is the world’s 2nd largest tire and rubber company (as of January 2009). Bridgestone NCR Co Ltd. is a joint venture between Bridgestone Corp and NCR Rubber, Bridgestone’s sales agent in Thailand.
The plant manufactures 2 main products: rubber-to-metal bonded products and hoses for air conditioning and fluid transmission.
At Bridgestone NCR, testing of fatigue strength of its rubber products is crucial to the quality control and quality assurance process.
The need to determine fatigue properties of its molded rubber products under high frequency is needed to ensure their competitiveness in the non tire rubber products industry.

The design of the MTS 832 system is aimed at:
Simple and yet efficient, this solution from MTS and APT is our third for BSNCR, and a firm grip for APT on the automobile testing solutions market in Thailand. The amount of time, space and labour saved for the customer makes this solution the preferred choice over the competition.
