- engine test bench -

Testing

the engine under real-life conditions of the street and the vehicle itself.

The internal test bench simulates various stationary and dynamic drives. A virtual quarter-mile-race can be performed, too.

Adjusting

the engine with as little time as possible.

Desired performance parameters can be verified before the engine is reinstalled or retrofitted.

The engine test bench

The installment of the engine test bench was sponsored through an EXIST start-up fellowship from the Federal Ministry for Economics and Energy. After finishing the main setup, the test bench is adjusted to classic combustion engines. After an ongoing precision tuning process and runs on the internal engine, the test bench can be used with experienced staff.

If you wish to receive an individual offer for a functional check, an optimization of your own combustion engine or applying and assessing performance enhancement measures,  

please get in touch.

The engine test bench allows hoots to assess all components in terms of functionality, durability, accuracy and influence of environmental changes – before the final assembly.
