Conn-Weld provides customers with exceptional service, responding to every call in a timely manner. We utilize the latest technology guided by an experienced team who ensures data is correct and accurate.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is the simulation of any given physical phenomenon using the numerical technique called Finite Element Method (FEM). Engineers use FEA Software to reduce the number of physical prototypes and experiments and optimize components in their design phase to develop better products, faster – while also saving on expenses.
This analysis includes a digital orbit plot. Using a throw card, readings are taken at all four corners of a machine at feed and discharge ends to obtain the X axis (horizontal motion), Z axis (side to side motion), G-Force, amplitude (“stroke”), and the operating angle of motion.
An impact test, also known as a bump test, is performed by using an instrumented hammer to induce a force into the screen body, causing it to “ring.” The analyzer can then measure and detect natural frequencies while the body goes through “ring down.”
Operation Deflection Shape analysis is a testing and analysis procedure that allows the user to take readings during operation of the screen, import them into the appropriate software, and produce animations to gather information about the actual functioning of the vibrating screen.
Experimental Modal Analysis is used to find the different mode shapes of the natural frequencies by using the impact hammer and exciting the screen body. When used in conjunction with available software packages, models and animations can be made of the resulting mode shapes.
Conn-Weld specializes in custom fabrication in separation technology and process solutions.
Our experienced engineers evaluate your process, review data for your unique application, and analyze this information to create a custom-manufactured product to fit your exact specifications. We guide you in choosing the best equipment options, such as sub-base, wear liners, or motor brakes, to ensure you have the right equipment for optimal performance. Customized feed systems are included in every solution.
We understand changes can occur throughout your project and we are committed to working with you. In those circumstances, our engineers will measure and review your processes to support new installations or retro-fitting.
