Exploring Additive Manufacturing

Exploring Additive Manufacturing

We started with two questions: Are automotive companies researching and testing additive manufacturing? If so, then what steps are they taking to implement this into their projects going forward? UW's Lisa Brock informed of the several industry-leading companies that are currently conducting case studies and even implementing additive manufacturing to their portfolio.

Press Release - Introducing Ensure OP™

Press Release - Introducing Ensure OP™

ATA, a leading international component test solutions company, today announced the Ensure product line of test systems. These systems are designed to benchmark performance and capture the unique failure modes of specific thermal/hydraulic components (i.e. pumps, valves, heat exchangers, etc.), accelerating the product development cycle and helping to ensure the reliability of components on the road.

Engine Oil Pump Maintenance Testing

Whether you are taking a first venture into component testing or have existing test apparatus that needs to be revamped, ATA has fully customizable and scalable test system solutions. One leading producer of oil pumps needed to retrofit and modernize their existing engine oil pump maintenance testing.

Engine Oil Pump Production Testing

Engine Oil Pump Production Testing

ATA Inc. was awarded a project from an existing client to build mobile test systems for production verification testing on six different engine oil pump models. We delivered on the client's needs for an accurate and interchangeable tool to verify pump performance and functionality using a grouping layout for the individual test cells, and by employing laser marking stations.

Engine Oil Pump Performance Testing

ATA was selected by a new client to build a turn-key Oil Pump ECT system to benchmark the performance of existing and future pump models. The client was a premier international manufacturer of powertrain automotive components.

Engine Oil Pump Durability Testing

Engine Oil Pump Durability Testing

For its Engine Oil Pumps, this client needed the most cost effective solutions to test the durability and endurance of existing and future designs of pump models. To maximize test throughput and efficiency, we offered the client dual test bays allowing for concurrent changeovers and capable of running endurance tests that are 1000 hours or more in duration.

Hydraulic Pump SAE J2311 Testing

ATA was able to propose an architecture to accomplish the client’s goals, with comprehensive correlation to all procedures outlined by the SAE J2311 standard for testing such components.

Transmission Oil Pump Production Audit Testing

Transmission Oil Pump Production Audit Testing

Efficient test machine design entails not only supporting current client needs and products, but also any similar models, with the flexibility to adapt to next generation designs as well. Such was the case when we were approached by a leading producer of engine and transmission oil pumps for the automotive sector.

Electric Power Steering Production Testing

Electric Power Steering Production Testing

Once your product emerges from the production line, you need confidence that it meets all specifications and exceeds test standards. This priority was evident for a power steering component manufacturer who required an end-of-line test stand for their electric power steering (EPS) module.

Water Pumps - Durability & Performance Testing

Water Pumps - Durability & Performance Testing

Manufacturers constantly need to modify products to incorporate advancements in technology and improvements in design and efficiency. With the push for electrification and improvements in efficiency of components, water pumps have seen significant advancements.
