Protection system with diagnostic and monitoring functionality.
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
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.
