At the 7-post shaker rig, customers can test their vehicles using all seven posts to simulate aerodynamic and inertial loads as well as road loading. If a simpler simulation is warranted only four posts can be used. This facility also offers a dynamic tire heating system to enhance real-world accuracy.
Reverse engineering is especially critical in today's need for improved efficiencies. The goal is to create a digital model from the physical parts. From scanning a suspension pickup bracket or an entire vehicle, our portable, laser system is capable of handling the job. Reverse engineering is booked on a project-to- project basis.
We understand that with today’s high energy costs even the smallest gains can add up to substantial costs savings, that is why we designed a driveline dyno that resolves horsepower to .1 hp. This full power facility allows components to be tested under the same road loading conditions that they would experience in service and measures power output at the hubs. This will allow the end user to fully optimize their drivetrain. The driveline dyno is booked on an hourly basis for a minimum of 8 hours per booking.
Beyond the individual usage of ARC tools, our experience will enable a client to design a combined technical approach that meets the specific needs and goals for our customers. A combined program typically can reduce individual costs for our services and offer a more focused and robust approach to performance improvement. Efficiency is the key to winning market share, as well as turning your development program into a success.
