Identify and solve problems, with experienced engineers handling design, analysis and physical inspections: eliminate gearbox, bearing and synchronizer failures and target reject rates in production
Case study in Problem Investigation
Requirement: investigate railway axle box failure
Services provided: examine the causes of bearing failures; explore analyses previously carried out by other companies/consultants. Our experts identified failure modes that indicated bearing misalignment was causing the problems; assembly tolerance errors had resulted in abnormal loading that previous analyses had not accounted for.
