High-performance dynamometer systems developer Sakor Technologies has announced a partnership with SAJ Test Plant Private Ltd. India-based SAJ is a pioneer in designing and manufacturing eddy current and hydraulic dynamometers for engine, vehicle and transmission test rigs and customized special test rigs.
Under the partnership, SAJ will serve as the exclusive representative of Sakor products, including the AccuDyne AC Dynamometer System, DynoLAB Test Cell Control System, and other products for hybrid and electric vehicle testing and high voltage battery testing and simulation.
The partnership will enable both companies to supply test equipment required to meet a recent Indian government mandate calling for the electrification of a large majority of vehicle fleets by 2030 to reduce pollution from gasoline and diesel engines.
SAJ tapped Sakor’s years of experience to conduct a high-level seminar to more than 65 chief engineers and managers of the country’s largest electric vehicle manufacturers. The seminar, held at SAJ’s headquarters, focused on how to select the proper test equipment for hybrid and electric vehicle systems testing, high voltage battery simulation and testing, and precision electrical power measurement.
Sakor’s experts reviewed the tools available for meeting the challenges of performance, durability and in-use simulation testing, as well as end-of-line verification and quality control for hybrid and electric vehicles.
“Our new partnership is a great way for both companies to attack challenges together that would be difficult to handle separately,” said Randal Beattie, president of Sakor.
“The combined capabilities of the two companies will enable us to service the new market for hybrid and electric vehicles in India over the next decade and beyond, helping to bring the government mandate into fruition.
“We were extremely pleased with the high level of interest in our expertise and products shown by the largest auto manufacturers in India.”
