Transmission Pump Production Test Machines
This machine accepts a transmission hydraulic pump from the assembly line and performs a full functional test on the unit. The hydraulic connections are made automatically once the safety door has been closed and locked. Results are stored and associated with a bar code that the operator scans in before testing. The pump is turned at variable speed and characteristics such as speed, torque to turn, flow rate and pressure are collected.
The test fluid is transmission fluid and is temperature controlled to the part for accurate, repeatable results. A drainage rack on the outside of the machine allows some fluid reclamation prior to progressing to the next step in the production line.
