Services for drivetrain efficiency
All from a single source: Kistler is a one-stop solution provider for drivetrain efficiency analysis
Identifying performance loss in a drivetrain during development is a challenging task. Iterating through different designs of components and systems requires flexibility in the testing setup as well as the know-how to change it accordingly. Acquiring the required measurement data as quickly and efficiently as possible requires more than just measurement technology. The definition of the appropriate setup and precise planning of the tests to be performed are at least as important. The right analysis tools and methods must be available for the subsequent data plausbilization and data analysis. And finally, there is data evaluation at the end of each iteration. The Kistler Original Service supports you along the complete process in order to reduce development costs and to shorten development times.
