Noise ,Vibration and Harshness (NVH) consideration in Design and Maintenance

25 to 26 February, 2019,
Vibration is one of the most pervasive problems in engineering industry. Time dependent motion related to vibrations is not only a cause for fatigue failures but also lead to undesirable deflection of structures. The latter is of high concern for many machine tools as it directly affects the quality of the output of the machine. In addition, in many situations, excessive vibrations also lead to noise problem in work area. Hence, a good understanding of the phenomenon – its characteristics and means of its control, is essential.

Effective Maintenance towards Zero down time-Electrical Aspects of CNC Machines

26 to 27 February, 2019,
CNC machines are real Mechatronic systems, having electrical and electronic circuits interacting with mechanical actuators / sub systems. Diagnostics and root cause analysis is an important aspect of maintenance, which is most often ignored. Often the roots of a mechanical problem is in the electronics area and that of an electronic problem lies elsewhere. Thorough understanding of the CNC machine circuit diagram, Ladder diagram and CNC parameters is needed to find and fix the root cause to minimize MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) and effective planning of PMBF(Preventive Maintenance Before Failure) towards zero down time. Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMT

Increasing focus on reduction of cost, weight and development time of structures with improved performance of structures necessitates use of computer-aided design and analysis tools. Finite Element Analysis is a methodology that helps engineers in this area. In this methodology, a mathematical model of physical behaviour of a phenomenon is created and is packaged in a software, leaving only the job of creating the geometric model and initial/boundary conditions for the phenomenon to the user. This activity, unless done with proper understanding of how the input data is used to create mathematical model, can lead to totally incorrect results. For effective use of the software, users’ un
