FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- MAHLE Powertrain’s exhibit at this year’s Automotive Testing Expo North America will include new manufacturing test equipment and a diagnostic tester for use by auto dealers.
Also on display from MAHLE’s Engineering Services Division will be a single-cylinder research engine, the company’s Turbulent Jet Ignition (TJI) combustion system and the MAHLE Flexible ECU (MFE).
MAHLE Powertrain (MPT) is a leader in the development of advanced engine technology, including research engines and advanced combustion systems. The MAHLE Flexible ECU is a robust, open architecture controller that has the capability to control any powertrain application using highly optimized MPT functional software.
Luke Cruff, MPT’s engineering manager for Design and Development, will give a presentation on applied and advanced powertrain engineering research tools at 1:40 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at the expo which takes place (Oct. 28-30) at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.
MAHLE’s Test Systems Division also will introduce a new vehicle manufacturing tester- DL3, as well as its ServiceLogiq® Dealership diagnostic tester. The DL3 (DataLogiq®3) provides a compact, cost-effective solution to meet a need for increased electronics testing and module flashing.
