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.
Industrial Durability Proving Ground.
ATA has proven to be successful in providing industrial focused Ensure™ test systems to many tier-1 suppliers. We often receive requests for off-highway oil pump applications. Recently, we underwent a project focused on durability testing.
All sub-components were designed to maximize reliability while minimizing cost and maintenance. Examples of this include protective capillary tubes on pressure sensors to shield them from high temperatures and pulsations.
The data acquisition interface was devised to be modular and scalable by adding spare I/O channels, such that the client would easily be able to add and configure additional sensors. The software suite was designed to allow the manufacturer to collect data in a simple and straightforward way, with the highest degree of reliability.
predefined pump test profiles and sequences
custom test profiles to measure temperature, speed, pressure, etc.
custom sampling frequency
sensors for intelligent monitoring to prevent test machine damage
automatic email or pager options in case of system alarms
extractable reports from automatically generated test data
After selecting the type of durability test to be run, such as constant speed, ramping profiles, cyclic acceleration, etc., the client was able to specify the total time duration or number of repetitions for each test.

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.
After production and before products go into field usage, it is necessary to conduct complete end-of-line performance testing. In the case of their advanced dual-head fuel injectors, our client recognized the need to fully evaluate all production components within their injectors, and to subject these components to rigorous test conditions.
