Developing a vibration, magnetic field, or acoustic noise specification for a sensitive tool or piece of equipment is a delicate balancing act. On one hand, setting a specification that is too tight limits the number of locations where a tool can be placed, thereby potentially reducing sales. On the other hand, setting a specification that is too loose risks severe degradation in tool performance resulting in weeks, months, or even years of unscheduled work for teams.
VEC collaborates with clients to quickly and efficiently develop informed vibration, magnetic field, and acoustic noise specifications that are tailored to the performance characteristics of each tool. The specification development services VEC provides include:
• Line or curve vibration and/or acoustic specification that is easily communicated to customers
• Nuanced “Response Calculator” that calculates a tools response to different frequencies of vibration and acoustic noise increasing the certainty of tool performance
• Electromagnetic field specification development
• Site survey services to evaluate potential tool placement locations based on specifications developed for both OEMs and end users
