Additionally, Haver & Boecker Niagara says it added impact testing to its Pulse portfolio with experimental model analysis. The impact test – also known as the hammer test or bump test – is now part of the company’s quality assurance program during factory testing, as well as on-site.

The company says this tests ensures each machine is properly tuned to avoid operating in resonance, ensuring efficient operation. Operating in resonance can diminish productivity, incur damage to vibrating screens and pose safety risks, Haver & Boecker Niagara says.

Impact testing involves striking the machine at key points with a dead blow hammer while the machine is off. Data is then collected and analyzed to identify the machine’s individual natural frequencies. Based on these results, engineers can adjust machine parameters to avoid these frequencies during operation.

Haver & Boecker Niagara says it can now provide a more holistic view of individual machines by combining impact testing data with other Pulse portfolio reporting and tracking, including Pulse vibration analysis and Pulse condition monitoring.

“Increasing customer productivity and profits are at the heart of every Haver & Boecker Niagara innovation,” says Wilm Schulz, Haver & Boecker Niagara’s parts and service manager. “With advances in technology, we’re able to provide real-time information that helps customers make well-informed decisions about their machine. Including impact testing gives us one more datapoint to extend the life and maintain the health of a vibrating screen.”
