Engine Carts

Application Engineering has Mobile Engine Testing carts that allows an engine/transmission to be mounted, aligned, dressed outside of the dynamometer test cell and rapidly installed, or removed. These devices provide universal mounting platforms for the engine/transmission. 15-minute engine changeovers are possible.

The engine test carts are engineered with customer’s application in mind. Application Engineering Inc. Cart/Receiver products utilize two (2) round locators at the flywheel end of the cart and cammed clamping locators at the front end of the cart. Another feature is that the AEI engine cart is lifted off the floor and is under a compressive clamping load while under test. All engine carts have commercially available bolted on, ball bearing swivel casters. Cart weldments are sand blasted, primed, and painted polyurethane ultrasonic silver. The locating components are removable, hardened and plated for rust prevention.

From the main engine test cart design Application Engineering has made many specialty carts engineered to maximize the customers unique test requirements. One particular set of carts, a tandem cart system where one cart held an engine on the other cart the transmission. Using a set of carts different engine and transmission combination could be switched around to do multiply levels of testing.

Advantages:
  • Time savings resulting from the pre-dressing of engines outside of the test cell.
     
  • Pre- positioning and locking of the cart to the receiver provides consistent alignment of components and a further reduction in test cell changeover time.
     
  • Elimination of the need for hoists in the test cell, while offering a safer method of transportation than forklifts.
     
  • Slotted cart rails and AEI's proven mounting hardware offers the adaptability to a wide range of engines with and without transmissions.
     
  • Heavy duty, welded, and machined structural steel components guarantee long life with a strong appearance.
