The team of technicians at our Engine Application Center (EAC) utilizes advanced tools and technology to ensure a successful integration of engine power to meet our OEM customer needs. The EAC is a free service provided to Commercial Power customers enabling them to drastically reduce R&D time and expense. A wealth of technical expertise is applied to each project that flows through the EAC.
Following is a brief overview that highlights our partnering involvement in the product development process.
- Evaluate Needs. Evaluate all areas of the engine/application interface.
- Analyze Design. Analyze the relevant design factors with each individual manufacturer to ensure the power solution selected is properly matched with its intended application.
- Testing. Conduct extensive testing to develop vibration, engine cooling and sound level alternatives to provide improvements in operator comfort, engine performance, and suggest design changes that will extend product life.
- Review Performance. Perform Engine Installation Reviews (EIR) to evaluate engine applications and recommend product improvements to enhance engine/equipment reliability, which in turn increases end-user satisfaction.
