Rickenbacker Factory



Here is another testing and run in area. We do more testing of oils and long term run-ins at these station. Operators here spend a lot of time taking down information on how well items are running.

Again you can see our engine rail transfer system. To the right center you can see the main incoming rail. On the floor running in front of all the engines are two rails that an engine dolly rolls on. This dolly will line up with the main incoming rail so the engine will transfer easily onto the dolly. Then a couple guys push the dolly to which ever station is available and line the dolly up with it. A small push and the engine is in place and hookup in less than ten minutes for further run-in testing.
