Window & Sunroof Torque Tester
The customer requested a portable system which would quickly and easily allow him to test the torque required to open and close windows in a car. The maximum torque required to start the rotation of the window mechanism should be recorded. In addition the 'running torque' required to maintain the rotary movement of the mechanism should be displayed.
A rechargeable battery-powered drill was adapted to fit a rotary torque transducer and an AFTI torque display. The drill was set to operate at a fixed speed equivalent to 30 rpm. A female adapter was fitted to the square drive of the rotary torque transducer, which held the spline of the window mechanism.
