Mustang Advanced Engineering installs heavy-duty dynamometers at GM Canada

Mustang Advanced Engineering (MAE), an American manufacturer of testing equipment, dynamometers and related products, has delivered and installed two new chassis dynamometers for GM Canada, which recently began a $2 billion transformational investment in their manufacturing and R&D facilities in Ingersoll and Oshawa, Ontario.

As part of their expanding capabilities, the need for end-of-line testing of GM’s heavy duty and light-duty pickups, and accommodating the switch to being Canada’s first full-scale EV manufacturing plant, they contacted Mustang to deliver two chassis dynamometers with the capabilities to handle two-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles.

GM is ramping up production of electric vehicles, and requires the equipment to test these vehicles. MAE’s solution was a 2WD and an AWD 500 series chassis dynamometers oversized and equipped with extra safety features including stone guards to block any debris thrown from the wheels on the rollers.
