Case study – Problem Investigation
Requirement: investigate railway axle box failure
Services provided: examine the causes of bearing failures and review the analyses carried out previously 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 identified.
Identify and solve problems, with experienced engineers carrying out design, analysis and physical inspections to eliminate gear, bearing and other component failures and reduce reject rates in production
Identify root causes of failures and devise countermeasures
Inspect and measure drivetrain components for expert assessment of their condition
Identify failure modes and root causes using structured investigations and advanced simulation
Optimise gear design and bearing selection to enhance performance
Review the influence of manufacturing tolerances and material properties on durability
