Engine Components and Final Assemblies

Leak testing is critical at many points along the assembly of an engine. The accuracy of these tests depends on several factors. Anything from temperature fluctuations in the testing environment to human error can impact the reliability of automotive manufacturing tests. We can work with you to help mitigate these factors and provide the repeatable testing you need. 

Whether the application involves testing an engine block or a complete engine assembly, the Sentinel family of leak identifying systems and flow instruments paired with CTS’ far reaching turnkey system capabilities equals a winning combination. A comprehensive, holistic approach is applied to developing solutions that exceed the reliability and performance targets of global engine manufacturers.

Multiple Methods to Test Transmissions

Whether the transmission component or final assembly test specification requires the use functional test or other calibration solutions, CTS has the tools for the best resolution. As with engine manufacturing, there are multiple stages of assembly where leak and function testing can detect defective components before they leave the product line.
