Acoustic quality assurance

Acoustic quality assurance

Acoustic quality analysis as an integral part of the manufacturing process enables rapid, reliable and thorough testing of all kinds of mechanical assemblies. The modular construction of the DISCOM noise analysis system enables it to be customized for all types of sensors and adapted to nearly any desired application. Among other implementations, the DISCOM system has been successfully used for testing automobile components (gearboxes, engines) and evaluating vehicles’ overall noise emissions inside the cabin. In addition to the actual measuring program, “Rotas”, our system includes a number of applications and databases that provide for detailed analyses and statistics, test bench administration and archiving of all the measurements.

The measuring system The measuring system consists of a latest generation industrial PC enhanced by the addition of a unique USB based data acquisition frontend, specially developed by DISCOM. The number of sensors used and the system’s processing power can be scaled by installing additional data acquisition modules into the frontend. Available sensors include contact detectors for structure-borne noise, torsional accelerometers, laser vibrometers, and microphones.

For All Types of Test Benches

The measuring system PC can be installed in a 19” cabinet or in a separate housing (for instance on a swivel arm). Its connection to the test bench control system is flexible as well – a serial connection, a Profibus™, an Ethernet link or even a parallel interface – a variety of options are available depending on the type of computer used for the control system. The additional application programs that make up the remainder of the package – assembly database, measurement archive, analysis programs – can be operated as desired on the measuring system computer itself or on a central server that administers a number of production lines in parallel.
