The RedViking Solution: A custom high performance Hypoid Gear Test Rig with our proprietary integrated test executive and controls platform.
Hypoid Gear Test Rig
An automotive manufacturer needed a test rig with the fixturing required to locate and maintain the precise relationship between the ring gear and pinion during Key Life Testing and Gear Fatigue Testing. Multiple shaft angles, a 2-speed gearbox with an automatic shift mechanism, a self-contained lubrication system and fixturing for the entire product line was required. In addition, the customer was looking for a modular, user-friendly operator interface for customized test profile creation, high speed data acquisition and advanced data analysis such as FFTs, order tracking and test article damage detection.
Highly Engineered Dynamometers
The automaker selected RedViking because of our extensive manufacturing industry expertise in designing and building drivetrain test systems, tooling, fixturing, software and controls – all with end-to-end project management. RedViking’s test executive provides a distinct advantage with its modular, integrated platform designed for the user experience. Together with its controls infrastructure, this powertrain testing platform provides highly advanced data analysis and logging capability with a user-friendly interface.
