It has been a great year here at CTW Automation and we want to wrap it up with this newsletter to keep you all up to date.

  • CTW Probe Software: CTW released (2) updates to CTW Probe, the most advanced shock dyno software on the market. As we detailed in the last newsletter, it has moved far beyond Shock6 and is giving the users so much more. Make sure to keep up to date to take advantage of the new features that come to market. The two (2) biggest and well received additions have been the ability to open a Roehrig Shock6 data file directly in Probe and the PVP Validation option which is part of the CTW Pro software.

Stay tuned to FB, Instagram, and website for release of the next version within 30 days!!

  • End of Line Test System: We are finishing our first fully automated machine that will take CTW into the End of the Line Test Systems. It starts with reading a bar code, creating a database, securely gripping, and holding a damper, preloading the crossbar and locking in place, followed by a multi-speed test with Validation of the forces and updating to the database. Wow! All under 6o seconds. This opens CTW to future projects incorporating electric linear actuators for even faster cycle times.
    • Barcode reading and Database of information and test results
    • User defined preload of crossbar with clamping and unclamping
    • Multi-Speed Testing with PVP Validation
    • Uses PLC controls mated to CTW Probe software to give the User a graphic interface while automating the loading/unloading of the specimen.

  • Hardware in the Loop: CTW is working to complete our first Hardware in the Loop project in conjunction with a very large customer. This was a joint project with CTW providing the inputs and outputs to feed into the customer’s proprietary software package to produce an extremely low latency result. More to come on this in 2024.
  • Expanding in India with Tii: We added a partnership In India to sell our CTW products. Tii already knows test equipment and they allow CTW to enter India with an established and well known business partner. They also will get the support of our Support and Service Group to take care of the Roehrig customers that have been left abandoned.Tii Techno Testing Instruments Pvt. Ltd.

  • No Turn Clevis: We even designed a unique clevis that no longer needs to turn the damper in order to secure. Driven by a customer request, we solved the problem of having a damper with a fixed canister that will simply not rotate inside the columns. This can also be used with dampers that are extremely hard to rotate due to large gas pressure or seals! We have these in stock now.
