Build a test machine that measures stiffness and damping parameters of rocker arms. The measurement method must had to be identical to the actual vibratory conveyor design.
A vibratory conveyor was designed and build that has identical arrangement, drive and suspension system to the actual product. A measurement method was developed that allowed us to measure 8 pcs of rocker at the same time after a 10 min long break-in. Data acquisition and offline data analysation by NI LabView application.
