The Motto of the R&D Center “intellect, embodied in metal” perfectly reflects the general dual overall challenge, which is to carry out fundamental and applied research on mathematic and free-size physical models, and further to embody the results of these studies into new designs and technological developments brought into mass production. Mathematical simulation, analysis and optimal design services Development of complex multidisciplinary finite element models of parts and assemblies for complex machines and devices with high level of elements’ interconnections (including for transport industry: railway car, bogie, side frame, bolster, side bearings, axle box, adapter with elastomeric pad, bearings, draft gears, electric drives and generators, electric turbocompressors, climate systems, electric pumps, gearboxes, hybrid hydro- and electromechanical transmission, special test rigs, etc.). A comprehensive range of analysis: static (linear and non-linear); dynamic (resonance, impact, non-stationary, non-linear); fatigue; tribology; heat transfer; electromagnetic and others. Optimal design of the shape and other variable parameters of machines, assemblies and parts basing on the Pareto-compromise between requirements for energy efficiency, long service lifetime, strength, reliability and cost restrictions. Mathematical simulation of technologies (casting, hot and cold forging, rolling, heat treatment, machining, special chemical heat treatment, high-frequency induction hardening, etc.) and optimization of technological modes based on energy efficiency, lower material consumption, higher geometric accuracy, pre-defined material structure and surface integrity.

Certification and research testing services for bearing units

Such a complex task as designing of a new generation long-life and energy-efficient bearing units cannot be solved without reliable experimental verification of mathematical simulation results and final confirmation of the product’s technical level by certification tests. For this purpose, the UPEC Industrial Group in its Testing Center has established the unique research and certification laboratory for bearing units. The laboratory is equipped with three testing rigs completely designed on mechatronic assemblies (in cooperation with Beckhoff) and two rigs with traditional hydraulic loading systems (in cooperation with Blumenbecker). The testing rigs are designed not only to determine gamma-percentile time to failure of axle bearings, according to GOST certification methods and European safety regulations EN 12082, but also to perform a wide range of researches. Among the important characteristics of these testing rigs there is a possibility to simulate specific static and dynamic loads and skewness inherent in three-element designs of bogies and “1520 gage” operating conditions. Automated Control System for testing rigs as well as monitoring of information make it possible to change test programs easily and provide on-line access throughout the testing process.
