Future catalyst systems are expected to have longer service lives and longer warranty periods while being more efficient. AGM will apply the full range of its technical and scientific expertise and develop new technologies to achieve these aims.

The main tasks of AGM’s system engineering are the simulation of catalytic function, flow and vibration analyses, component tests, exhaust system tests and vehicle tests.

AGM places particular emphasis on the development of materials, the optimisation of matrix structures, the improvement of production  processes and the implementation of existing development potential to increase catalyst efficiency. The company uses coordinated development programmes consisting of theoretical studies and practical tests to optimise the complete catalyst system. 

In our R&D department, we start by using the industry's first precision exhaust header modeling system, exhaust system CAD software and virtual dyno programs to virtually "build" prototype exhaust system designs. Then we put all of the theories to test on what we call the “lie detector”—the superflow Dyno. After it passes the lie detector test, we actually build it! But it ain't over, yet: we test each pipe design rigorously on motorcycles to ensure flawless performance, using a state-of-the-art super flow Eddy Current Dyno, laboratory-grade exhaust gas analyzers, exhaust temperature sensors, and sound metering devices that allow us to graph and analyze critical aspects, giving us the ability to fine tune each design to perfection.

There are no dyno games here...all testing is done in a controlled environment, and are performed with exact measurements on shock compression, air pressure, oil temperature and head temperature. So you can be sure when you see horsepower and torque numbers they are true AGM&BHLJ numbers!
