Research & Development

Simpsons, as a leader and pioneer of diesel engine technology, is abreast with the world and Research & Development as well. Simpsons Research & Development has made significant contributions in improving power density and engine efficiency and has made an indelible mark on reduced emission and enhanced engine life. It has, in association with AVL, developed new generation Common Rail Direct Ignition Engines and has the capability to develop engines as per EPA/CARB Standards. Our R&D center is registered with Department of Scientific & Industrial Research Goverment of India.

The old wing of Engine R&D function consists of seven test cells with state of the art measuring equipment namely gravimetric fuel flow, torque, speed, ultrasonic air flow and smoke measurement by opacity and reflection from a filter paper that draws a known mass of exhaust gases. In the cells, electronic emission meters for NO, NO2, CO and O2 measurements are used.

The console room is air conditioned for dust free condition for enabling fault free running of all the electronic instruments. Calculation of emissions is carried out as per ISO-8178 for power generation and tractor applications. An ingenious method is used to estimate particulates.

The new wing of Engine R&D has three brand new test cells with emission equipment and dynamometers from AVL. One of them is AC dynamometer to measure transients to test for newer emissions standards prevalent outside India. For study of engine behavior, AVL indicating system and noise measurement equipment are available.

Simpson R&D uses Creo/Pro-E for 3-D modeling of engine parts and full assembly of engines. It is in the process of integrating Windchill with its ERP so as to harness the potential of 3-D models.

Ready to fit customised solutions, application wing, installation, commissioning, validation.

Simpsons also offering Common Rail stringent emission engines for global markets and the same is also of much support to them in the domestic markets.
