Automotive & Engine Testing
Another specialised type of machine we supply are dynamometer motors available for speeds of up to 12000rpm. These machines are used in a range of applications such as engine testing rigs in education or manufacturing and rolling road testing rigs in automotive test facilities.
For engine testing dynamometers, such high speeds require a specialist design using our technical knowledge and experience to carefully design the bearings and rotor to cope with the speed. Where needed we may also cryomechanically assemble the rotors to ensure a tighter fit on the shaft.
Our rotors are analysed at the design stage to determine their natural frequency, then during manufacturing they are balanced to a very fine tolerance to ensure they are suitable for the expected duty.
