Reducing chatter and vibration

What do you do to help reduce chatter and vibration in your machines? Have you ever done machine vibration analysis?

Seco Tools recently pointed out to us how it sometimes advises aerospace and defense manufacturers to use some form of machine analysis to isolate the harmonic signature of a given machine.

“The goal is to find a machine’s stable harmonic signature—which will help find the most stable spindle speed inside the machine and the parameters of that signature,” says Eric Gardner, an application specialist at Seco Tools, in a recent Better MRO article on aircraft wings.

If you need to help reduce chatter and vibration, it advises makers to consider using software or other project-based consultation from one of the leaders in that field, such as BlueSwarf or CutPro Simulation Software.

Have you done this? Used another vendor or solution? What’s your take? How effective was what you used?
