A local company manufactures and tests a product line of surgical and dental drills. The company allocates equal time to drill assembly and drill motor testing. The current testing methods are too slow and inconsistent. A drill test system has been designed which reduces testing time and yields more accurate results. The drill test system consists of a computer, virtual instrumentation software, temperature monitor, hi-pot controller, dynamometer/controller, drill motor speed control console, and a signal processor. The drill test system accurately measures temperature rise, current draw, and drill motor speed.
