MAC MOTORS IN A DRIVELINE TEST FACILITY IN MICHIGAN

New driveline efficiency test rig

Drive System Design Inc, an award winning engineering consultancy specialising in the design, development and control of future transmission and driveline systems, has built a new driveline test facility in Michigan, USA.

The facility’s first project is the test and development of a full parallel hybrid transmission for a front-wheel drive application for a North American vehicle manufacturer.

In this project, VASCAT was responsible for supplying a MAC QI and a MAC HS4 which make suitable for all transmission types, including engine accessory drives, such as supercharger gearboxes. It will largely be used for transmission efficiency testing and the data produced will also ensure that transmission efficiency math models produced in-house are well correlated.

Equipment at the center will enable manufacturers to lower vehicle emissions, improve fuel economy and increase electric vehicle range.

VASCAT has a large experience in providing motor solutions for testing systems and stands out for its short delivery times (even for customized motors) and a very competitive quality/price ratio.

MDD GW MOTORS IN A AUSTRIAN MICRO BULB TURBINES DESIGN

MDD GW 180

VASCAT has recently delivered three synchronous generators to an Austrian company with more than 100 years of experience in the development and the supply of water turbines and small hydropower plants.

These 60 kW MDD GW 180 direct drive generators will be installed in Japan. It has been supplied in a frameless version (rotor and stator kit) and built-in by the manufacturer to its micro Bulb Turbines design.

The main improvements provided by this project are: the increase of the turbine efficiency, reduced maintenance requirements and improving reliability of the system.

Thanks to this collaboration, VASCAT contributes to our customer ranks among the leading suppliers of efficient hydropower technologies with a long service life.

VASCAT has extensive experience supplying electric motors for renewable energies machinery, highlighting short delivery times (even for custom motors) and a very competitive price/quality ratio
