I recently had the opportunity to present a case example of a successful project at the SAE Milwaukee chapter meeting, hosted at our facility. ACS designed and built a containerized engine test cell, customized to the client’s testing requirements and range of products. Diesel Forward, our customer for this project, is an aftermarket parts manufacturer and distributor. They required increased levels of test documentation to support their new and existing products.

View Full Project Overview

The containerized solution was installed with minimal onsite construction and can be taken to another facility location if needed. By using an AC dynamometer, they now generate enough electricity during durability testing to power their manufacturing facility, which contributes to their return on investment.

This project illustrates what our customers tell us are the key benefits of working with ACS:

  • Technical Expertise
  • Integrated Facility and Equipment
  • Customization to Client’s Unique Requirements
  • Flexible Project Execution
  • Accountability for Performance

ACS did a very good job of designing a customized system to meet our show what unusual needs. They were easy to work with an came up with exactly what we wanted.
