Measure your part, not your machine. As easy as it is to say, this is actually the hardest thing to get right in a production machine, and it is even more critical on an NVH machine. For an interesting story on our first machine, check out our blog post.
A machine can be broken down into three main parts – the machine base and actuators, part clamping, and the sensing mechanism. A good test system has low machine self-noise, a stiff and repeatable clamping of the part, is isolated from the environment around it, and has a comprehensive sensor suite designed to isolate defect signatures.
The team at Signal.X brings our experience as mechanical engineers and NVH experts to work with you to build a machine that is repeatable, reliable, and sensitive. From concrete-filled bases to high accuracy spindles, we understand what makes a machine successful.
Using the acquisition system of Shield, we can take advantage of our own accelerometer probe designs, force reaction plates, microphones, torque sensors, and many more.
