As customer expectations rise, high manufacturing quality is an absolute requirement, regardless of where products are manufactured, distributed and sold. Ensuring quality standards are met through a series of test measurements is a vital part of quality assurance (QA) and production teams. Under the given conditions of the manufacturing environment, quality test systems must generate reliable test results in an economic way with respect to time and test efforts.
With our solutions you can achieve high reliability of the test facility, implement short cycle times and high throughput rate during series production, increase level of automation reducing manual operations and operator errors, combine objective and reproducible pass-fail results with root cause analysis to generate insights for possible intermediate redesigns, and can easily adapt to changing requirements. This systematically improves overall product and manufacturing quality and leads to a reduction in customer complaints. In addition, it supports continuous process improvement by providing valuable input to both the product and production digital twin.
In the automotive sector, end-of-line testing uses vibroacoustic measurements to accurately identify the properties of every produced component and determine if the product has any defect.
End-of-line testing solutions perform process-secure, fully automated, and highly reliable fault detection under volume production conditions using vibration and sound measurements. Typical applications include internal combustion engines, transmissions, electric motors, and motor-driven components and systems. Assembly errors and component defects, together with distinctive (noise-related) characteristics are detected within seconds during manufacturing. Rationalization and cost savings are realized thanks to increased automation, early detection of failures, less reworking and fewer recalls.
Non-destructive component testing on volume production series uses acoustic resonance testing (ART), an acoustic inspection technology that evaluates natural vibrations, which are unique physical characteristics that describe the complete component regarding material, structure and geometry. The presence of cracks is detected by looking for differences in resonance frequency, bandwidth and amplitude. Our non-destructive testing solution enables quick, objective, reproducible and automated quality testing based on low investment and cost of operation.
Perform production machinery process monitoring with the help of sound and vibration analysis. Our process monitoring solutions are used to inspect fast working production machines such as presses, saws, and punches. Machine sounds and vibrations are assessed using vibration and sound analysis. Broken parts, pre-damaged material, foreign bodies, polluted press set-ins, and more, are recognized immediately and the machine is stopped.
