Dynamic vibration measurements provide information of possible sources of malfunction. This can help on solving stringent issues and achieving excellence in product design.
For positioning systems, advanced setpoint design methods can effectively reduce end-effector vibrations. This is beneficial for safety and drive-train design requirements.
Tribological characterization providing design rules with respect to material selection. Developing a pin-on-plate testing campaign by mimicking the operation conditions.
Improving machine performance to serve the future market needs. An example of the development of a precision motion stage with a scanning accuracy of few nanometer.
A machine vision system was added to a dispensing robot; using robotic vision to enable customized features in the droplet dispensing process.
Online self-calibration of a position measurement system. Result is an error profile virtually free of integration errors, allowing on-the-fly in-line calibration.
Examples structural dynamics & vibration analysis
How to ensure that a product will fulfill its dynamics and vibration requirements. From specification to actual design; what is the right approach?
For optimal solutions, it is important to include dynamic computations in all design phases. To be efficient, different modeling techniques are used for each phase, with different levels of detail and different focus.
Experimental vibrational analysis
How to verify that a product meets its dynamic requirements. If they are not met, how to find out the cause and how to improve on this?
By measuring e.g. accelerations, either induced by external forces or under operational conditions, relevant information with respect to the dynamic behavior is gained.
Drop test simulation and experiments
How to determine if a product will meet its drop and shock testing requirements? Is it possible to predict this during design, so countermeasures are taken if necessary?
We can perform computer simulations of the drop behavior of a product. We can also perform impact experiments under pre-defined conditions and suggest improvements.

What our customers value
“Philips Innovation Services consistently brings strong core technical competencies to product development. Their support has been invaluable to the design team of Philips Oral Hygiene.”
Design Engineer Oral Healthcare
“This is an unbelievably smart group of people”
Advanced Product Engineer
“Philips Innovation Services has a broad and in-depth knowledge of System Dynamics, based on many years of experience. Our project got a speed boost because we could tap into this vast knowledge-base early on, via consultancy.”
Senior System Architect
IBS Precision Engineering
“Philips Innovation Services offers specialized expertise that is vital to some of our key initiatives. They collaborate uniquely well because of their insightful yet efficient methods of problem definition, their transparent project management, and their analytical clarity.”
Vice President Innovation
“Of course, a small company with competent engineers can make prototypes, but by working with Philips Innovation Services, we could create a unit which could easily, quickly and cost-efficiently be transferred to production. The response has been very positive and we almost immediately received the first orders.”
Chief Operating Officer
“My overall evaluation of the EMC project is pretty positive. We got very good guidance to setup and execute the tests, excellent support to solve technical issues and interpret data. Comprehensive reporting, very fast planning and resource allocation. The communication and interaction was always friendly and productive.”
“ASML, Philips Research and Philips Innovation Services are jointly working on the fabrication of ultrathin EUV pellicle membranes, for which the requirements continuously approach and push barriers on manufacturability, process ability, handling, and measurement techniques to new frontiers. The highly dedicated efforts and close cooperations of these teams are a good example of successful innovation.”
Senior Specialist Contamination Control
“Electronics is such a broad field, there’s no way a single person can be an expert in every area, so we were pleased to find Philips Innovation Services had the exact expertise we were looking for.”
Senior Hardware Engineer and Engineering team leader
“The joint team of Aquaver and Philips Innovation Services had a completely open view onto the possibilities of membrane distillation and stressed the units to its limits again and again. The result was that we jointly have been able to create vast improvements in performance and reliability over the last year.”
