Diesel Engine Assembly And Test by Comptek, Inc.
For almost 30 years Comptek has been a partner with various engine manufacturers to provide engineering services and systems for diesel engine assembly and test applications.
Comptek currently supports engine test systems in almost 18 manufacturing plants worldwide. Comptek test software runs comprehensive diesel engine functional tests in over 125 end of assembly line test cells.
Each manufacturing facility typically has multiple test cells networked together. The Comptek Production Test Network is connected directly with the plant engine scheduling database and executes tests by selecting pre-determined model dependent test schedules which vary the test procedure and test limits to the engine performance specifications. Upon completion of the test a pass/fail determination is made and test results are reported to the plant manufacturing database.
Along the assembly line, Comptek provides software engineering services to design, develop, maintain and support assembly line stations for programming the engine specific information and calibrations into the engine control module (ECM).
Comptek also provides software engineering to design, develop, maintain and support in-process verification stations which communicate via CAN bus to modules on the diesel engine as it is being manufactured on the assembly line.
COMPTEK is a supplier of computer based systems and engineering services for industrial automation applications. Our manufacturing assembly and test applications include engine, generator and harness test systems; assembly line monitoring and in-process verification stations; ECM module programming and CAN interface software; data acquisition and instrumentation design & build; leak test monitoring systems; fuel conditioning systems; test cell data servers; operator consoles; assembly line set and printer stations; part verification bins; and computer and instrumentation enclosures. Capabilities include hardware and software simultaneous engineering, design, hardware assembly and build, software programming, commissioning, on-site support, documentation & training. Since 1983 COMPTEK has addressed the computer automation needs of the industrial marketplace. We specialize in providing products and services for computer based industrial assembly, test and control systems. COMPTEK integrates hardware and software capabilities into a cohesive efficient computer system. We provide plant floor systems for: Production monitoring and control; functional product tests; data retention and analysis; operator and management real-time displays and reports. Our experience on computers encompasses a wide variety of applications using various custom designs. In the ever changing industry of computer hardware and software, COMPTEK designs, provides and supports systems using "field proven", state of the art components. COMPTEK systems are designed to be independent of the computer processor, operating system and data acquisition hardware. This enables the application to be easily ported to new products and concepts as they become available in the industry. The following systems illustrate our applications experience: * Engineering, quality audit and production testing of diesel engines * Production testing of automotive transmissions * Cold and Hot testing of gasoline engines * In process verification of components during assembly * Management and Information systems for assembly and test operations * Electronic Control Module (ECM) interface, communications and programming * Central Data Systems for networking cell controllers
