See Signalysis in booth #5043 at the 2016 Automotive Test Expo. This year’s event will be held October 25-27 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. Learn about our end-of-production test systems, LabVIEW development, and everything else that we have to offer.
Brake Rotor Testing Resonance Frequencies of Brake Rotors have always been a known contributor to brake noise and premature wear of brake pads and shoes. This presentation discusses: Brake Rotor Modes, Modal Characteristics, Vibration Excitation Methods, FRF 3 Modes of Vibration, Vibration Response Measurements, Brake Rotor Resonance Frequency, Automated Impactors and Contact vs Non-Contact Sensors.
Signalysis was featured in a recent NVH article written by Desktop Engineering Magazine. Here is an excerpt from Neil Coleman:
“The application will typically define the hardware and software requirements for a NVH test. Normally, you cannot mix and match analysis software with data acquisition hardware. However, there are a few companies that do offer cross platform support. Most companies will normally adopt a vendor’s technology based on functionality, channel count, technical capabilities and of course the cost,” says Neil Coleman, president and CEO of Signalysis.
Signalysis is offering a book “Experimental Structural Dynamics: An Introduction to Experimental Methods of Characterizing Vibrating Structures” written by Sr. Applications Specialist, Robert Coleman. Readers will develop an understanding of the theory underlying the simple vibratory process, as well as the concepts allowing application of this understanding to the analysis of any complicated vibratory process for the most complex structure.
Signalysis announces the latest release of SigQC analysis software. SigQC analyzes components, subassemblies and products to pinpoint NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) issues and determine, in real-time, if quality goals are met. Providing a completely automated PASS/FAIL inspection solution, SigQC is flexible and can be utilized for production and laboratory testing applications.
Some of the new features and capabilities include: Order Tracking, Post Process Design-Time Mode & SigQC Dashboard configuration. Read more here
Delivering the Sound of Silence: Using Accelerometers to Detect Noise Defects
All products that have moving components will inherently make some noise. Many industries, such as home appliances, medical device and automotive have established noise requirements for product design engineers. Testing for noise in a laboratory has become a standard for almost all companies. However, testing for these noise requirements in a manufacturing environment is extremely costly and time consuming. Signalysis and the IQC Test System will correlate excessive product noise through the components vibrations signature. This 40 minute webinar will provide an overview of accelerometer testing – from test set-up through data acquisition and analysis. Case studies and data analysis examples will also be covered.
