mae

April 18, 2014 – Twinsburg, Ohio, USA – Mustang Advanced Engineering (MAE) today announced the company has successfully delivered and installed a testing system capable of conducting end-of-line tests on every tractor produced at AGCO’s assembly plant in Jackson, Minnesota.

The test system consists of a jounce tester, a PTO testing system, and an advanced chassis dynamometer developed specifically for tractor testing all tightly integrated into an automated package.

The jounce tester consists of two plates recessed into the factory floor controlled by electro-mechanical actuators which move up and down at various frequencies to subject the tractor to in use, rough field conditions while AGCO personnel monitor various electrical and hydraulic components.  The process is completely automated, guiding the test operator through the various testing steps to ensure consistent testing across every tractor tested.

The PTO testing system applies a load to the tractor’s PTO output through an ISO Class 3 splined coupling shaft.  The system measures and collects the torque and speed of the tractor’s PTO output across its functional rpm band.  The system is capable of loading 792 HP/5,615 N-m at 1,000 rpm, with a maximum speed rating of 3,500 rpm.

The chassis dynamometer utilizes a unique design developed by MAE engineers to provide AGCO the ability to test both wheel and track driven tractors on one machine.  The dynamometer tests the tractor’s steering, brakes, suspension, transmission shift quality, and engine performance.  The dynamometer is rated at 1,900 HP peak at 35 mph.

Michael Caldwell, Sales Manager, worked closely with AGCO’s engineering staff to meet current testing requirements and also to provide sufficient flexibility to test future tractor designs.  “MAE strives to provide world class testing solutions for a variety of manufacturers at competitive price points.”

Mustang Advanced Engineering, an operating division of Mustang Dynamometer, is located in Twinsburg, Ohio where the company has been based since 1986. Mustang Dynamometer offers an industry leading line-up of high performance dynamometers and related products. Mustang Advanced Engineering is a leading supplier of advanced, custom engineered testing and measurement systems.

MAE awarded contract to build an Advanced R&D Dynamometer for plug-in electric vehicles

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 Comments Off on MAE awarded contract to build an Advanced R&D Dynamometer for plug-in electric vehicles

An electric vehicle on the MAE-AC-4000 Chassis DynamometerMustang Advanced Engineering announced today that it has been awarded a contract with an anonymous electric vehicle manufacturer to build an advanced research and development dynamometer for plug-in electric vehicles.

The advanced research and development dynamometer is built for testing plug-in electric vehicles. The engineers at MAE designed this dynamometer to leverage the precision of 4 independently-controlled AC motors, each coupled to its own set of rollers, to control the load to each wheel independently.  This setup allows test engineers to exert unprecedented control over testing conditions.

Mustang Advanced Engineering also designed the custom dynamometer to be as future-proof as possible. With a variable wheelbase that ranges from 80-146”, the R&D dynamometer will be ready to fit nearly any design the engineers decide to research and/or develop.

The design consists of several custom modifications to MAE’s standard AC-4000 product, which comes standard with 4 independently controlled AC motors, and an integrated ABS Brake Tester. The AC-4000 also utilizes automatic vehicle restraints for increased testing throughput and efficiency while ensuring the test vehicle remains safely in position on the tester.

Chief Engineer and VP Donald Ganzhorn has been pleasantly surprised with the reception of the AC-4000 since its introduction in May of 2011. “The AC-4000 is one of the most versatile dynamometers we’ve ever designed. Built for efficient, accurate and powerful end-of-line validation testing, the AC-4000 also is an excellent solution for research and development labs.”

Mustang Awarded Contract To Supply Complete TurnkeyTest Stand For Testing Bell Helicopter OH-58C/D Kiowa and Kiowa Warrior Helicopter Transmissions

Thursday, October 13th, 2011 Comments Off on Mustang Awarded Contract To Supply Complete TurnkeyTest Stand For Testing Bell Helicopter OH-58C/D Kiowa and Kiowa Warrior Helicopter Transmissions

 

Helicopter Transmission Dynamometer

Mustang Advanced Engineering (MAE) today announced that the company has been awarded a contract to supply and install a new test stand capable of testing the OH-58C/D helicopter main gear boxes and tail rotor gear boxes for the U.S. Military. The contract calls for MAE to deliver a turn-key solution which includes interfacing with existing and/or new facility utilities including, but not limited to, electrical power, lighting, compressed air, ambient air, HVAC, filtering, domestic water, cooling water, heat exchangers, facility utilities, concrete, and switchgear.

The test stand will be configured with three AC variable speed dyne motors, all directly coupled to the test articles and configured in a common bus arrangement to allow the electrical power to be re-circulated within the system. This drive configuration offers significant power savings over the life of the test stand and provides a true next-generation “green” test stand.

The three AC motor system includes a power package that produces up to 8,509 lb-ft of torque at speeds up to 6,200 rpm, capable of meeting or exceeding the various DMWR requirements of the U.S. Military.

In addition to the main test stand, the turnkey systems will be supplied with an oil cooling system, fixturing and quick-connect test article mounting systems, torque disc calibration systems, MAE’s TRANSdyne Control Software and a comprehensive data acquisition package.

“Mustang is extremely pleased to have been selected as the supplier of choice for this advanced helicopter gear box test stand,” said David Ganzhorn, V.P. Sales. “Our decades of experience with sophisticated transmission test stands like this one was a key to winning this important contract and we are anxious to roll up our sleeves and start working on this exciting project.”
