Evaluating Suspension and Transmission Part Strength

With manual transmissions, the engine and drive train are connected via the clutch mechanism at every gear change.
A clutch functions hundreds or thousands of times while you drive, and requires optimal tuning. In addition, with high-output engines the strength of the engine/drive train connection must be sufficient to efficiently transmit engine power.
Thus, strength testing is performed to evaluate clutch spring force and satisfy a variety of conditions.
The Shimadzu Autograph features a variety of jigs, including compression plates for spring compression, and displacement measuring devices, enabling the measurement of even slight distortions.
