TORSIONAL DAMPER VALIDATION TESTING

Validation testing is performed during torsional damper development.  Quality and damper performance criteria benchmarks are established during the collaboration process.  These criteria can be validated through a series of tests in different environments:

ON ENGINE
Mobile test equipment with engine or chassis dyno.

OFF ENGINE
In-house lab equipment using log decay methods.

IN VEHICLE
Driveline testing capabilities performed at test track.
