Powertrain

Engine and Powertrain

For decades, we've brought our expertise and technology to bear to help manufacturers build their engines, gearboxes and drive shafts.

The result is powertrains that are more economical to produce, more reliable and manufactured to higher quality standards – giving improved performance, greater fuel efficiency, reduced pollution and longer service lives.

Where we specialise

Quality

The greater complexity of modern engines imposes ever tougher form and dimensional requirements on parts. Efficiency and operating standards also demand precise control of the flatness, waviness and roughness of material surfaces. Our technologies are used to validate part conformance against these requirements.

Control

From correctly calibrating machine tools and ensuring accurate set-up to final inspection, we ensure out of tolerance parts never make it into final assembly of a vehicle.

How can we help you?

 

Gauging

Our Equator™ gauging system automatically keep processes centred and deliver quality assurance close to the point of manufacture.

Calibration

Devices and software for accurate machine tool and CMM set-up create a foundation for high quality, repeatable, efficient manufacturing processes.

Tool setting and broken tool detection

 Contact and non-contact tool setting systems to detect and adjust to the condition or wear of cutting tools.

Probes

Touch probes that ensure parts are set correctly, check for changes like thermal drift during machining and assure parts meet their specification and design intent.

Position encoders

Magnetic and optical encoders to give high accuracy in tight spaces.

Inspection

Our 3 and 5-axis CMM probing systems can scan parts to inspect form and surface finish rapidly. This is particularly valuable for the inspection of features like valve seats and cylinder bores.
