IIHS Wants Bigger, Harder Crashes for Its Side Impact Tests

While the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has gradually evolved its testing procedures since its inception, it has hit the accelerator over the past few years, eager to crash into a new era of knowledge… Alright, so it actually just wanted to assess problematic crash trajectories and headlight safety for insurance companies. Still, they’ve been making meaningful changes in a bid to boost overall safety. On Thursday, the institute said it plans to continue evolving its crash-test procedures. It claims it’s gotten so good at developing side-impact assessments, “the current side ratings no longer help consumers distinguish among vehicles or point the way toward further improvements.” “This is an opportunity to build on what we’ve learned in more than 15 years of side testing,” said IIHS Senior Research Engineer Becky Mueller. “We’ll update the things that need updating, but we don’t need to throw out the things that still work well.” Basically, the group feels the current metrics it uses to assess damage/injury are fine. It plans to use the same dummies and equipment inside the victim car. The only real change is the ferocity of the impact, as it believes the old sta...

Rob Hibberd (right) and Jason Rose in front of one of the Biglia B565-YS lathes at Headline Filters, Aylesford New process routes for around half of the factory’s production of bonded microfibre filter housings at Headline Filters involve four new CNC machines installed between September 2018 and July 2019. They are three turning centres with Y-axis from Biglia, Italy and a German-built Spinner machining centre with trunnion-mounted rotary table, all supplied by UK agent Whitehouse Machine Tools. A backlog in multi-operation turning and milling of a particular filter part, a complex stainless-steel head designated ‘112’, prompted the manufacturer to look for a more productive solution. The obvious choice was a lathe with powerful driven tooling and twin opposed spindles to enable in-cycle machining of the reverse end of the component. Space is limited on the shopfloor in Aylesford and the machine initially considered was too large to be conveniently installed. Whitehouse demonstrated how the more compact Biglia B565-YS lathe which was half the price could do the job, provided it was fitted with double, triple and quad tool holders in its 12-station turret so that the requisite ...
