Vibroacoustic device measurements

Main aims of vibration measurements

  • evaluation of the effect of vibration on durability
  • solving fatigue problems
  • evaluation of material noise
  • establishing critical work points (frequency, speed, etc.) at which the vibrations of highest amplitude occur
  • establishing the main reasons behind excessive noise emissions
  • evaluation of wear of machinery components – diagnostics
  • limiting vibration with the aim of ensuring safety and comfort

Main purposes of noise measurements

  • diagnosis of incorrect operation
  • establishing of excessive noise production
  • ensuring compatibility with requirements and norms
  • ensuring quality
  • product development (regarding noise)

Vibroacoustic measurements

  • measurements of vibration in gearmotors, window lifters, wiper mechanisms, sunroof mechanisms, etc.
  • steering wheel vibration measurements at engine idle
  • vehicle door vibration measurements during closing (damping)
  • engine and exhaust system vibration measurements
  • low frequency vibration measurements using a seismic sensor – for example, in order to evaluate floor vibrations under precise measuring machines
