Pervading Cold Testing of Engines in the Automobile Zone
Although the quality of a completed engine ready for shipping is traditionally assured by adopting the firing run at the final process of the engine assembly line, we have still not readily accepted the testing of engines in cold state i.e. without actual combustion & continue to neglect all its long term benefits in view of the immediate shortcomings which not only enhances the inspection speed, fault detection but also poses zilch threat to the environment around us. It increases the effectiveness of the “In-Process Quality Control” of an Engine production line.
