SAKOR Technologies supplied a valve spring test system to SAIC Motor Corporation Limited, a major, multinational automotive manufacturing company headquartered in Shanghai, China. The SAKOR test stand is used for valve train development and testing, and is expected to facilitate improvements in fuel economy. SAIC and its partners use the new capabilities for driving engine cam systems to make precise laser measurement of valve displacement, spring displacement and motion of other valve train components in the engine head as the cams are spinning. The SAKOR test stand system is equipped with a single AccuDyne AC Dynamometer that drives both camshafts simultaneously. The valve spring testing unit facilitates review of different mechanical components, springs, valve seats, and components in the cam drive line.
