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.
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.
