Dyno Testing Benefits

What is Transmission Dyno Testing?

Dyno (dynamometer) testing involves placing a transmission on a specialized test stand where it can be operated under controlled conditions. This process simulates real-world driving scenarios, allowing for comprehensive assessment and fine-tuning of the transmission’s performance.

If not, we can focus our efforts to optimise your fleet’s performance and efficiency, while pinpointing specific concerns that could be the cause.

Key Benefits of Dyno Testing:

  • Performance Verification: Confirms the transmission performs optimally under various load conditions.
  • Early Issue Detection: Identifies potential problems before they lead to failures on the road.
  • Custom Tuning: Allows for adjustments to improve performance and efficiency.
  • Quality Assurance: Provides peace of mind knowing the transmission has been rigorously tested.

Our Dyno Testing Process

At Vortex Transmissions, our dyno testing process is designed to ensure thorough evaluation and optimization of your heavy-duty automatic transmission. Here’s an overview of our testing procedure:

  1. Pre-Test Inspection:
    • Detailed inspection of the transmission to ensure it is in good condition and ready for testing.
    • Documentation of the transmission’s baseline specifications.
  2. Mounting and Setup:
    • Secure mounting of the transmission onto the dynamometer test stand.
    • Connection of all necessary sensors and data acquisition systems.
  3. Initial Calibration:
    • Calibration of the dyno equipment to match the specific transmission model and testing requirements.
    • Verification of proper operation and safety protocols.
  4. Testing Phases:
    • Cold Test: Evaluation of the transmission’s performance at ambient temperature.
    • Hot Test: Running the transmission under load to achieve operating temperature, simulating real-world conditions.
    • Full Load Test: Subjecting the transmission to maximum load conditions to assess its performance limits.
    • Shift Quality Test: Monitoring and adjusting shift patterns to ensure smooth and precise gear changes.
  5. Data Analysis:
    • Collection and analysis of performance data, including torque, RPM, temperature, and pressure readings.
    • Identification of any anomalies or areas for improvement.
  6. Optimization:
    • Fine-tuning of the transmission based on data analysis to enhance performance and reliability.
    • Re-testing as needed to confirm adjustments.
  7. Post-Test Inspection:
    • Final inspection of the transmission to ensure no issues arose during testing.
    • Detailed reporting of test results and any recommendations for further action.
