Solving Jet Engine Test Problems Using Ruggedized Test Equipment

Posted by Jon Semancik on Nov 1, 2018 12:00:00 PM

A jet engine is the very definition of “mission-critical.” A critical failure could cause a serious accident that endangers hundreds of lives. To prevent this from happening, manufacturers perform extensive testing on jet engine components, systems, and manufacturing processes.

Jet engine tests involve subjecting the unit under test to extreme temperatures, jets of water, simulated hail, severe vibration, and other harsh conditions. Sometimes test engineers even slam chicken carcasses against engines to simulate bird strikes. These tests can be very costly and take years to develop. Engineers must measure many different parameters during these tests, including temperature, flow, pressure, rotation, strain, and vibration.

AMETEK VTI Instruments recently delivered an Automated Remote Functional Test System to Tata’s Power Strategic Engineering Division (SED) environmental testing lab in Bengaluru. Tata plans to use the system for environmental stress screening (ESS) of electronic modules and sub-systems. The architecture of the new test system is based on AMETEK VTI Instruments “FlexSys” Series automated test equipment (ATE).

Sorensen SG Series ensures auto parts reliability

Posted by Bill Martin on Aug 28, 2017 10:31:27 AM

One of the big challenges when designing and manufacturing auto parts is ensuring that they operate reliably in very hot environments, such as Dubai, where the high temperature can easily reach 40˚C. Of course, they must also operate reliably in very cold environments, such as Siberia, where the thermometer can drop to -40˚C or below. You certainly don't want parts to fail when you're zipping down the road at 200 km/hr. because they can't take the heat (or the cold).
