With over half a century of experience, Polytec Inc (Booth 7012) continues to develop, produce and distribute optical measurement solutions for research and industry. At this week’s Automotive Testing Expo Novi, the company displayed the latest version of its VibroGo solution, used to identify noise sources and measure vibration . The most current iteration of the product can measure sound and vibration while providing data in easy-to-understand images.
“It’s the next generation of portable vibrometers,” explained Vikrant Palan, team leader Central Region, during the show. “It’s a battery-operated, fully self-inclusive vibrometer system that measures vibrations using a laser beam without touching the surface. It can be used for structure testing, production testing and R&D.”
According to Palan, if customers need to compare real measured data with an FE model, measure modal parameters, troubleshoot or optimize the NVH of their product, there’s no faster, more accurate way to make measurements.
“Whether they’re trying to identify what’s wrong with a structure, improve a design or make something quieter, they can use the vibration signature to fundamentally understand what the components are doing.”
Reaction to the VibroGo at Automotive Testing Expo, Novi, Michigan 2019 proved very positive. “It’s been a good day,” admitted Palan, speaking on the second day of the show. “So far, the product has been taken positively. This version is new but it’s a fairly mature product. Polytec is a 52-year-old company and it’s been doing this for a few decades now, so this is just a continuation.”
