Prevent Da­m­ages Dur­ing the Prod­uct Life Cycle

In the de­vel­op­ment of the prod­uct

Danger­ous vi­bra­tion con­di­tions occur in al­most all stages of a prod­uct's life cycle. The de­vel­op­ment of the prod­ucts aims at avoid­ing dan­ger­ous vi­bra­tions on the fu­ture prod­uct as far as pos­si­ble based on the un­der­ly­ing knowl­edge. An op­ti­mal pa­ram­e­ter­i­za­tion of the com­po­nent ge­om­e­try is in the fore­ground here. The main chal­lenge is there­fore to test the pro­to­types in order to ob­tain basic in­for­ma­tion about the vi­bra­tion be­hav­ior.

In The pro­duc­tion of the prod­uct

In the pro­duc­tion of prod­ucts, as well, it is nec­es­sary to mea­sure vi­bra­tions for qual­i­ty test­ing and final ac­cep­tance and to en­sure com­pli­ance with the spec­i­fi­ca­tions. Other­wise, this would have cost­ly con­se­quences if war­ran­ty cases, such as prod­uct re­calls or re­work­ing at the cus­tomer's site be­come nec­es­sary.

In the op­er­a­tion of the prod­uct

The most sig­nif­i­cant in­flu­ence of dan­ger­ous vi­bra­tions can be found in the op­er­a­tion of prod­ucts or ma­chiner­ies. An ini­tial­ly elas­tic load re­sult­ing from the dif­fer­ent vi­bra­tions has a dan­ger­ous ef­fect on the func­tion­al­i­ties of im­por­tant com­po­nents over a longer pe­ri­od of time. Res­o­nance phe­nom­e­na caused by ex­ter­nal ex­ci­ta­tions rep­re­sent an even greater dan­ger be­cause they occur im­me­di­ate­ly if cer­tain bound­ary con­di­tions are ful­filled.

Vi­bra­tions at Dif­fer­ent Stages

Chal­lenges dur­ing the prod­uct life-cycle

For all these stages with­in the prod­uct life cycle, dif­fer­ent sys­tems for mea­sur­ing, an­a­lyz­ing and pro­tect­ing the ma­chine are nor­mal­ly re­quired to en­sure safe op­er­a­tion. This leads to a sig­nif­i­cant cost fac­tor for sys­tem op­er­a­tors.

One Sys­tem for All Stages of the Prod­uct Life-cycle

Our so­lu­tion

IFTA of­fers uni­ver­sal sys­tem so­lu­tions that are used at every stage of the prod­uct life cycle. A flex­i­ble hard­ware and soft­ware plat­form makes this pos­si­ble and of­fers a lot of ad­van­tages to our cus­tomers.

Above all, em­ploy­ees ben­e­fit from a uni­form sys­tem for sev­er­al ap­pli­ca­tions. A uni­form sys­tem and thus also uni­form soft­ware leads to a high de­gree of user-friend­li­ness. In ad­di­tion, com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween dif­fer­ent de­part­ments is pro­mot­ed be­cause data is easy to ex­change and the same in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at sev­er­al work­sta­tions.
The most im­por­tant point by far, how­ev­er, is the re­duc­tion in costs of­fered by a uni­form sys­tem. Whether through more uni­form staff train­ing or sim­ply by avoid­ing the need to pur­chase a sep­a­rate mea­sure­ment sys­tem for each in­di­vid­u­al prob­lem.
