Torsional vibration has been known to fail the gear rotor of oil pumps. Typically, the failure occurs during testing on an engine dynamometer at the OEM’s facility. A failure at this point is not only very expensive and time consuming, but it also doesn’t look good for the reputation of the oil pump supplier.
With ATA Dynamics™, the amount of torsional vibration can be controlled so that the component under test can be tested with different nominal speeds and torque pulsation profiles.
Reduce the need for engine dynamometers during the product development of powertrain components with by adding ATA Dynamics™ to your workspace.
