Joy Global: Fatigue Analysis using Large Field Strain Gauge Data with nCode GlyphWorks

This presentation discusses fatigue analysis work done at Joy Global using a large amounts of field strain gauge data with nCode GlyphWorks. Benefits seen from using nCode include: 

  •  Elimination of manual operation and operator errors
  • Accurate life prediction 
  • Time savings (15x faster)
  • Cost reduction (engineering time, software & hardware costs)
  • Improving NPD by using strain gauge data to optimize machine controls and to improve machine performance
  • Easy to program
  • Flexibility of analysis
