Laboratory device Sonic TCE

Material tests trough natural frequency

SonicTC® combines innovative technic and reduced industrial design.  EigenFrequency is the new natural frequency meter of RTE GmbH. A mechanic impulse sets the inspection objects into motion, which can directly be recorded and analyzed from a high performance microphone. Within seconds you get informed about quality and security of the inspection parts. This laboratory device is used for material analyses in the component inspection of automotive brake systems. It gets special emphasis in the analysis and prevention of squeaking and rattling noises.

defortec developed therefore a modular design housing system for single and dual chamber as well as Inline using.
The whole construction is a combination of steel and aluminum with a swivel hood which is effortless to handle, a foldable keyboard and an ergonomic touchscreen. The production without elaborated tools allows lower production costs and design for small quantities.

"Industrial design"

Industrial design or product design is focused on concepts for industrially produced products. It‘s mainly divided into two sections: a) the designing of consumption goods and b) the designing of capital goods. Consumption goods are furniture, sanitary products, and electronic products, while capital goods involve design development from product plants and medicine and laboratory equipment. It‘s concentrated on products for professional users. On these projects the designer works often in interdisciplinary teams. Its responsibilities are structure studies, brand development, optimization of the function while taking into account the needs of the target group. A designer is an creator for series-produced products and not an artist who is creating a single item.
