A new test bench center has been opened at Dana Power Technologies’ R&D facility in Neu-Ulm, Germany. The new 15,500ft2 (1,440m2) center at the company’s existing campus, houses three engine test benches, as well as rigs for hot gas and acoustic measurement. These will provide more efficiency, increased amounts of data and higher quality data.

With its customers’ needs in mind, Dana has ensured that the new testing equipment offers flexibility, enabling the company to test technologies created for a range of vehicle platforms with varying engine conditions.

Key features of the new equipment include tight integration of the control systems with the engine control unit, which allows better measurement and control of operational conditions of the engine, as well as the opportunity to use several different fuels.

“Through these new, state-of-the-art test benches, Dana has a more efficient means for compiling and analyzing data as it relates to engine efficiency,” said Dwayne Matthews, president of Dana Power Technologies.

“The updates to our test bench equipment are critical to making informed decisions about future technologies and will ensure our customers receive the superior quality, safety, and performance they’ve come to expect from Dana.”
