Damper Dynamometer or “Shock Dyno”

The Damper Dynamometer (often called a “shock dyno) is one of the most important machines in the shop. We use the dyno to test and ensure that our customers are getting the top performance from their suspension components.

Consider the importance of this piece of equipment; even simple things such as, are the adjusters working on my shock? How about if you send your forks out for a revalve, requesting to have 10% more compression damping? How is the “before” damping known? After the valving changes, how do we determine that 10% additional damping achieved and not 5% or even 30%? The Dynamometer provides those answers. Many detailed and accurate measurements are made and recorded by this advanced machine. Damping forces are measured with respect to both velocity and position of your shock or forks. Examples of other important factors that are measured include internal friction, gas pressure and temperature rise. Pressure balance within the shock can be optimized as well as other performance factors assured. The Dynamometer assures our customers high quality and precision.  > Read More about Shock Dyno’s

Testing and Repair of Electronic SuspensionsTesting and Repair of Electronic Suspensions

Cogent Dynamics are able to service and test electronic suspension systems and equipped with high technology equipment Like the Ohlins EC Diagnostic Machine for Mechatronic Suspension.

Vacuum Bleeding and Filling

Use of Specialized vacuum filling equipment optimizes the performance of your suspension. Many shock manufacturers such as Ohlins, WP (KTM) and Cogent Dynamics specify the use of this process for the correct function of their products.

Proper Vacuum bleeding and filling of your damper components ensure improved performance by eliminating most of the entrapped air form the damper and damping fluid. your shocks, forks and steering dampers will work better as the damping fluid can work in a much less compressible way, providing better control with less hysteresis or unwanted “springiness”.
