Oftentimes, we work on projects that need a new set of eyes to determine a fresh approach to product improvement, and sometimes those projects require complex analysis to unearth the best solutions.
One of our customers manufactures products that take their customers through extremely rough terrain, and they were encountering what appeared to be low cycle fatigue failures. To know for sure, we partnered with Great Lakes Sound and Vibration to instrument the product for vibration levels in field use. Through waterfall plots vibrational analysis, our engineers assessed and resolved failure issues and sourced new construction materials for our client. We improved the overall product endurance, reduced production costs and enhanced styling and appearance without sacrificing performance.
