Troubleshooting & Customized Engineering Services

Troubleshooting & Customized Engineering Services

Your wiring harness cannot be installed? Your hydraulic hose suffers from premature wear? Contact us! We solve these challenges for you. Our experts will carefully analyze your use case. ... See more

We conduct customer-oriented engineering projects in the field of design, optimization and virtual validation, using the extensive features of the IPS product portfolio and the specific expertise of our staff to support you in developing solutions customized to your particular use case. Depending on your preferences, we can solve your specific task on site at your facilities or in our own premises. Depending on the task we simulate or reconstruct your case, carry out causal research and troubleshooting, and offer you an optimized solution.

Troubleshooting: Flexible components such as cables and hoses are often abraded easily. However, it is not easy to identify the causes, since these parts are often exposed to many different kind of stress and strains at the same time. Without knowing the exact reasons for the stress, it is almost impossible to find an efficient solutions for this issue. There we can help with some detailed causal research for your issue. The extensive functions of our IPS software and the expert know-how of our staff are the ideal prerequisite for efficient diagnostic troubleshooting and reliable damage analysis in order to find suitable solutions for your specific use case. Contact us to receive further information and to benefit from these services.

Measurement of Cables and Hoses

Measurement of Cables and Hoses

IPS Cable Simulation software allows a highly precise simulation of behavior of wires, hoses and even complete wiring harnesses. However, for achieving accurate results, it is essential to apply correct input parameters. ... See more

In this context, Fraunhofer ITWM has developed a methodology and a patented measuring machine MeSOMICS allowing to capture and to measure single electric cables, wiring harnesses and hoses with respect to their material properties. As a result, the software users obtain the parameters that are necessary as input data for an exact simulation, including bending, extensional and torsional stiffness.

In case the exact material properties of the relevant cables and hoses are not available, we can help by stipulating the material properties. With our own MeSOMICS measuring machine, we can carry out the related measurements for you. The resulting stiffness parameters are then used as input data in IPS Cable Simulation in order to obtain realistic and accurate simulation results.
