Case study in Manufacturing Support
Requirement: review, audit and gap analysis for prototype gearbox
Services provided: examining the manufacturing process (what went right/what didn’t) to identify issues, audit to ensure compliance with QA plan and verify specification, capability review, gap analysis of ‘what’s missing and what’s required’, with recommendations made on improvements to reduce costs.
Case study in Testing Support
Requirement: bearing test rig development
Services provided: test rig design for large size bearings, simulating behaviour in turbine operation, studying the skidding characteristics of High-Speed Stage (HSS) bearings and monitoring bearing degradation using vibration and temperature measurements. Results from the rig were successfully applied to assess the influence on bearing performance
