Real Time Chatter Analysis
Overview

The Real Time Chatter Analysis – Sliding Window (RTCA-SW) software is a chatter analysis software that allows manufacturers to realize the power of angular window (or sliding window) analysis (in degrees) for camshaft and crankshaft quality control tasks. This boutique software option enables engineers to detect chatter that occurs in only a small angular window of the journal or lobe surface (burst chatter), without diluting the amplitude by analyzing over a larger angular window or over the entire 360°. Using this feature in concert with your Adcole gage, users can analyze specific degree segments across the lobe, moving in specific degree increments. The RTCA-SW software is available for individual lobe analysis and for average lobe FFT chatter analysis. The data gleaned from this option is saved based on a percentage of tolerance or on a strict value difference.

Features & Benefits
  • Provides separate chatter plots about each lobe, plus a plot of the average of all the lobes
  • Data is displayed in a curved tolerance graph that clearly shows individual lobe data and the overall lobe trend
  • Programmable “sweep” option enables users to measure a specific angular range, and specify the incremental angular window (sliding window) to obtain a 120° snapshot of a given part (Adcole recommends sliding windows of 30°)
  • Offers means for metrology professions to see amplitude in its full impact, unmitigated by the scanning range of the component
  • Enables camshaft and crankshaft manufacturers to find chatter “bursts” on components
  • The RTCA-SW option affords the data needed to find machining issues, and with deeper analysis over time, create a predictive analysis process that improves overall camshaft and crankshaft production
  • Sliding window technology provides means for tracking chatter across the entire lobe surface in customizable detail
  • Software reports the specific angle chatter is found, providing hyper-specific information about the grinding and machining process
  • Offers a practical means for manufacturers to obtain a rich data set about pin journals on crankshafts
