Our client, is a world renowned expert on electric motors and generators. For several years, D&E Machine Co. has been this individuals go-to machine shop for prototyping services. As a trusted machining source, we were contracted by this client to build and test-run five absorption dynamometers. This device is used for gauging a machines mechanical power, measuring the output or driving torque of a rotating machine. University students needed this device to simulate power on a Navy Ship in order to create software to help the Navy gain more efficiency from the ships motors.
Without the use of drawings, D&E was able to CNC machine and assemble multiple absorption dynamometers based solely on student specifications and descriptions of the device. Using Mastercam Cad Cam software, we designed and built this machine to exceed our clients specific product requirements. We also performed a test-run of each dynamometer to ensure proper performance. In addition, D&E wrote the instruction manual for these products and provided a tool set with each unit.
With no drawings available, D&E Machine Co. was able to successfully design and build 5 high-performance absorption dynamometers for a client from the University of Florida. Meeting our customers high expectations for quality, we delivered these products to the University within a six week turnaround period.
