Vibration Testing and Vibration Analysis Solutions
Vibration analysis and vibration testing are essential in every product design and maintenance. Vibration may influence the durability and reliability of mechanical systems or structures and cause problems such as damage, abnormal stopping, and disaster which may lead to severe safety issues. Vibration measurement is an important countermeasure to prevent these problems.
Rotating machinery analysis is primarily concerned with signals relating to the rotational speed and its harmonics. Orders are harmonics of the rotational speed. Evaluating orders can be critically important on many types of rotating machines. Dewesoft offers easy to use solutions for order tracking analysis, torsional vibration, FFT analysis, and Octave Band Analysis.
Our data acquisition systems offer flexibility and the most precise vibration measurement with an unmatched signal to noise ratio - more than 130 dB and dynamic range up to 160 dB. We support any kind of vibration sensors (IEPE, MEMS and charge accelerometers) and rotational sensors - analog and digital tacho probes, counter and encoder sensors.
Octave Analysis for Predictive Maintenance and Monitoring
Octave analysis is an indispensable tool for sound measurement as well as predictive maintenance and monitoring due to its logarithmic frequency axis. Dewesoft octave analysis solution meets all of the IEC and ANSI Class I specifications for octave filters.
Rotational and Torsional Vibration Analysis
Torsional vibrations are quite often a source of issues and faults on the rotating shafts. Our rotational and torsional vibration analysis module combined with the order tracking analysis module is a perfect tool for troubleshooting shafts, crankshafts, gears in automotive, industrial or power-generation applications.
Order Tracking Analysis
Order tracking analysis is a tool to determine the operating condition of the rotating machines such as resonances, stable operation points, determining a cause of vibrations. Dewesoft provides a flexible order analysis software and data acquisition hardware for every rotating machinery and rotordynamics. The tool is extremely powerful in combination with other modules like torsional vibration analysis, combustion analysis or power analysis and can provide complete diagnostics of generators, combustion engines, and rotating shafts.
Static and Dynamic Balancing of Rotating Machines
Balanced rotors are essential for the smooth operation of rotating machinery. Unbalance will create high vibrations, reducing machine life and causing material defects. Our single and dual-plane balancing tool is a great tool to eliminate unbalance on-site reducing long down times.
Human and Whole Body Vibration Testing
The human and whole-body vibration module tests and measures the effect of vibration on the human body. The extracted parameters allow the simple assessment of the injuries risk for workers, exposed to constant vibration. Our solution supports the whole-body and hand-arm vibration measurement are supported according to all relevant international standards - ISO 5349, ISO 8041, ISO 2631-1 and ISO 2631-5.
