SAKOR Technologies, a provider of dynamometer systems, is supplying Lockheed Martin with two more AC motoring dynamometers for the company’s Materials Technology Laboratory. These dynamometers are designed to be used in the research, development, quality control, and design validation of a variety of technologies for Lockheed Martin’s advanced aerospace projects.
The systems are designed to be used with magneto-fluidic couplings, which allow for testing of products within a thermo-vacuum chamber while the dynamometer remains outside the chamber, a configuration ideal for testing components intended for deep space, the company states. They can be used as independent test systems, or used in groups of up to four dynamometers.
“Lockheed Martin has a longstanding commitment to working with smaller US-based companies and SAKOR is honored to be selected to provide our top-quality testing solutions for Lockheed Martin’s critical aerospace projects,” said Randal Beattie, president of SAKOR Technologies. “Our first two testing systems provided Lockheed Martin with trouble-free operation throughout the entire GOES-R project. Now, we are pleased to remain a trusted partner of the company and to continue to innovate in order to most effectively test the next generation of aerospace technology.”
