Every day, agricultural machinery has to endure heavy workloads. Failures are critical because natural processes cannot be delayed. Not only do appliances have to function, but they also have to satisfy the toughest demands for driving comfort and acoustics.
The challenges in the development process are immense. Variable combinations of tractors fitted with different farming equipment or self-propelled harvesting machines mean there are a huge number of excitation profiles for the overall system. Agricultural machines require efficient drive mechanisms which form a complex system owing to the mix of development tasks in classical mechanical engineering.
Fulfilling these development tasks requires efficient tools.
Flexibility in the Countryside
PAK, as a state-of-the-art and flexible measuring system, supports a development process that records sources and visually represents the impact throughout the overall system. Cutting-edge tools for determining the transfer paths provide helpful insights into improving the construction, so that the acoustic and vibration-related comfort can be directly enhanced. It is particularly important having the ability to record and evaluate simultaneously and accurately the effects of the sources (drive mechanisms, rotating components, chassis excitation, etc.).
