Vibrating screens operate at high frequencies at up to 5g's acceleration reaching 10,000,000 cycles in approximately one week's duty. Thus the allowable design fatigue stress is very low in comparison to most other machines and structures. In order to ensure such minimal stresses, innovative design and careful manipulation of modal frequencies are required.

LC Engineering utilises Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques to tune screen designs by way of altering the structure stiffness, in order to move modal frequencies away from that running speed. FEA provides the tool to do just that. Through changes to the design, a vibrating screen can be produced with accurately predicted stresses and optimised modal frequencies.

With LC Engineering's experience in vibration analysis and strain gauging, the FEA models predictions of stress and modal frequencies are easily verified and/or troubleshooted. Through optimising your designs, LC can provide reliable solutions in order to minimise unplanned shutdowns and reduce maintenance costs. LC also has experience in screen panel design.
