Measuring technology cooperation:
DEWETRON and tectos
DEWETRON is an Austrian manufacturer of high-precision test and measurement systems. The tailor-made and modular products enable customers to measure even more efficiently and precisely. In addition, the measurement systems are immediately ready for use and can be quickly adapted to special measuring requirements.
NVH, simulation, measurement, vibration optimization and construction require a fundamental understanding and knowledge of dynamic behaviour and the associated environmental influences. Specialists of different technical fields are in constant dialogue with each other and work closely together with the in-house research and development department.
Analysis in combination with interpretation of the results by tectos engineeres and a profound recommendation leads to solutions which are sustainable, practicable and efficient.
Specifications of the tectos test benches:
Simulation is an essential element during the development process. Generated models identify weak points and effects and can be optimized without using cost intensive ressources.
Based on perceptions of the concept and physical boundaries the design specialists are transferring these insights into products.
tectos designers are characterized by many years of experience and profound system understanding: that is why function and efficiency, usability and scalability are taken into account at an very early stage. Any tools required and their integration into the workplace may be provided on request and facilitate work when using system components developed by tectos.
Together with simulation, measurements form an unbeatable combination:
The knowledge gained in the simulation is validated by measurement and – if necessary – used for further optimization.
Experienced and highly qualified engineers carry out these measurements and interpret the results – be it at tectos or directly on-site at the customer.
The knowledge gained is then incorporated into the calculation models and represents an essential part of the solution process. Measurements are also crucial for tectos quality assurance.
tShaft: Shaft selection and verification tool
Testing a new motor on the testbed also means a big challenge in choosing the right shaft with the exact properties. Here, not only the corresponding torques have to be transferred but also the relevant levels of stiffness and distributions of the mass inertia have to be taken into account correctly.
tShaft is an efficient analysis tool that selects the optimum shaft for an engine on a given test rig. Only a few parameters can be used to define all current engine types. The user can also use integrated estimation routines to determine unknown parameters.
The tDME100 was designed for torque measurements on installed intermediate shafts for vehicle tests. The torque is measured on the gear shaft using strain gauges (DMS). Transmission is done optically. The connection between the DMS and signal processing is pluggable.
