Axiline 97000 Transmission Dyno


Digital For Ease & Accuracy

The Axiline 97000 features full digital control for highly accurate and repeatable testing. It adapts to most all domestic foreign front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive, transverse, manual, and CVT transmissions. The 97000 tests transmission line pressure, shift point and response, downshift and converter lockup, stall speed and more all under simulated vehicle load conditions. The standard SuperShifter Pro operator console gives the operator full digital control of both the dyno and the transmission with potentiometers for load and speed. The console is conveniently mounted on swinging arms so the operator can spot oil and pressure leaks, check hydraulic and system controls, and make minor adjustments while the transmission is mounted on the tester. The 97000 can be upgraded with a WinDyn Data Acquisition system for powerful automated testing features and full post test data analysis, graphing and replay functions.

Now with ATP's Test Cube and SuperFlow's WinDyn data acquisition and control system you can control and fully test electronically shifted Mechatronic transmissions and valve bodies on any transmission dynamometer or valve body tester equiped with the WinDyn Test Cube option. Check out the options section for more information.

Precision Alignment Adapters

SuperFlow's precision alignment tooling guarantees that the transmission input shaft and torque converter hub will be properly aligned with the input drive motor on the dynamometer. This prevents conditions found on other dynamometers where misalignment of the transmission input causes pump failures and ruins pump bushings and converter hubs on new rebuilds during testing. The multi position turret holds the transmission master plate centered to the input drive. The flex plate bolts to the back of the torque converter using spool spacers to set converter depth and also drive the converter. The pilot bushing aligns the torque converter and flexplate to the input drive. The transmission is then mounted to the master using precision dowel pins for alignment. Once the transmission is mounted, the splined output adapter is installed and the electric shuttle motors drive the load unit up to the output shaft. Detailed setup sheets show operators how to properly mount differnet transmissions.

Push Button Machine Controls

The SuperShifter Pro Operator Console includes several features to make operating the Axiline 97000 transmission dyno easy and safe. Two setpoint controllers allow for manual adjustment of input speed and output load. Input speed is set in RPM using the rotary knob. The knobs adjustment range can be set to fine, medium and coarse adjustment directly on the touch screen next to the knob. The load control knob can be set to control to either percentage of load from 0-100% or to output torque in lb.ft. on dynos equipped with output torque measurement. This knobs adjustment range can also be set for fine, medium or coarse adjustment. Eight buttons provide complete control of common machine and transmission functions like; solenoid control on/off, upshift, downshift, TCC lockup, input motor forward, input motor reverse, brake on/off and table motion power. Button status is shown with the indicator light above each button. The red e-stop button is easy to access in case of emergency. Keyed system power can be used for lock out, tag out and is also popular with technical schools to disable the machine when instructors are not present. The entire operator console is mounted to the side of the 97000 on a swinging are so during operation the user can visually monitor the transmission for leaks. When not in use the console can be swung out of the way to change transmissions on the dyno.

SuperShifter Pro Control Console

The SuperShifter Pro operator console is include with the 97000 transmission tester. It gives users a simple digital interface to control both the dyno and the transmission they are testing along with 8 programmable buttons for machine controls and 2 rotary knobs for easy input RPM and output load adjustment. Five screens within SuperShifter Pro provide the necessary tools to fully develop, test or diagnose transmissions. Popular features of SuperShifter Pro include; individual control of up to 12 solenoids, built in resistance tests and manual shift tests to diagnose under performing solenoids and other conditions that lead to harsh shifts. The easy-to-read digital displays for pressure switches, PRNDL, input RPM, left output, right output and gear ratio make it easy to understand how the transmission is performing. Input RPM can be selected manually or closed loop PID controlled to RPM. Output load can also be selected manually as a percentage of load or closed loop controlled to output torque. Electronic pressure control solenoids and lockup solenoids can also be tested and controlled via the on screen interface. The console is mounted on swinging arms so it can be moved out of the way while changing transmissions.

Product Options

Adapter Plates

Choice of 15 precision alignment adapter packages.

Auto Shift

Auto Shift image

The linear shift actuator controls the manual detent position of the transmission. Since it uses a cable, the Auto shift can connect to most every transmission. It can be fitted with torque measurement, up to 50 lb-ft.

Auto Stall

The eddy current brakes on the 97000 are outfitted with hydraulic disc brakes to test stall speed. Auto Stall automates this process by replacing the foot operated stall pedal with an electronic actuator.

AWD Load Unit

The AWD Third Load Unit equips the 97000 to test most AWD transmissions. The floor mounted unit is equipped with an eddy current absorber and an operator interface with load percentage adjustment, digital RPM display, load power on/off switch and emergency stop. With a separate potentiometer, it can also set the same load percentage or be modified to check the differential. An adjustable side-to-side and up/down table shuttle moves 10” (25cm) side-to-side from center and 3 1/2” (8.9 cm) up/down from center.

Inline Cooler

Inline Cooler image

The inline oil cooler connects to the transmission cooler lines to maintain proper oil temperature during extended test sequences. It is ideal for long test sequences or endurance testing.

Input Torque

Input Torque image

This custom input shaft is instrumented with a torque transducer to measure torque directly before the converter for highly accurate readings. 60 pulse per revolution encoder. 450 lb-ft rating.

Output Torque

Optional load cell to measure static or dynamic torque.

WinDyn CAN Control

SuperFlow's innovative WinDyn CAN Control (WCC) system adds optional Mechatronic control to the VBT 8000. WCC simulates the vehicle's CAN network so the TCM can make shift decisions like it would in the vehicle rather than following along to a replay of driving data. What this means is the mechatronic will react to the input torque and throttle position set by the operator or automated test sequence and vary the shift points accordingly. This is a much more complete way to test the transmission and it will ensure your comeback rate drops quickly.
