Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC hosted technical expert Wayne Tustin at its Elyria, Ohio, headquarters Nov. 27-29 to showcase commitment to keeping its engineers on the leading edge of active safety and braking system technology development, the company says.
Tustin is an authority on factors that cause equipment downtime, specializing in the measurement, analysis and simulation of mechanical shock and vibration, Bendix says. While visiting Bendix, he conducted an intensive three-day workshop with 13 experienced Bendix engineers.
“Vibration study can be highly theoretical, and Wayne Tustin is able to translate its very complex concepts into applications that our engineers can put to work every day,” says Raymundo Garza, manager of organizational learning at Bendix. “By learning the most effective ways of extracting and interpreting vibration data from commercial vehicles, our engineers are even better equipped to put that data to use in designing and enhancing Bendix’s products.”
Bendix says Tustin’s visit reflects one aspect the company’s commitment to ensuring that its engineers at all levels keep abreast of the skills and evolving information needed to develop industry-leading technologies.
