  5. 5. Boeing Munitions Handling Unit • Innoventor was contracted by the Boeing Company to overhaul an out-of-service munitions handling unit (MHU), which lifts and orients munitions on various aircrafts. • Innoventor evaluated the unit and developed solutions to get the unit back in working order. Services included: he repair of hydraulic system components, running gear components, and exterior re-paint. Future maintenance costs were reduced by adding foam to the tires, eliminating the possibility for flat tires. • Innoventor developed the requirements to replace the existing diesel engine with a propane-fueled engine, enabling the unit to run inside an aircraft hangar. • Following the retrofit of the engine and full refurbishment of the unit, comprehensive safety and functional tests were conducted prior to final delivery to Boeing. 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044

  25. 25. Soil Lab R&D Systems PROBLEM: The Soil Lab uses a scale model of a bucket or other earth-moving tool Some things, like soil, are too complicated to model in a computer. Building prototypes is very expensive – Creating virtual models is much cheaper! Software models can be changed much more quickly – saving time and money! 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044
  26. 26. Soil Lab R&D Systems SOLUTION: Innoventor wrote the software and helped build the hardware for the system that does this. To explore the interaction of the machine with the soil we combine a software virtual model of a machine with a robot containing a scale model of the part that interacts with the soil. The robot is used to dig in the soil and collect data for later analysis. The Innoventor software has the added benefit of a modular design, resulting in a lot of code reuse between the various systems, and a similar method of operation, reducing learning curve and errors for operators. Building prototypes is very expensive – Creating virtual models in software is much cheaper! 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044
  27. 27. Soil Lab R&D Systems Mobility Bin Dyno Cart PROBLEM: Design and build a new system that will test the interaction between a wheel and the soil in a bin This will require Innoventor to: • Design and build an entirely new carriage • Incorporate 5 axis of motion • Integrate both electric and hydraulic drives 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044
  28. 28. Soil Lab R&D Systems Mobility Bin Dyno Cart SOLUTION: Innoventor has designed a system that will combine the desired functionality of the mobility tester with another proposed system for testing tracks in the bin. Innoventor noticed the similarities of two systems that we were proposing and designed a combined solution The combined design: • saves money • increases functionality of each system • saves precious space in the soil bin 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044

  30. 30. Machine Research Compaction Monitor PROBLEM: Caterpillar needs to be a leader in intelligent compaction technology and products. One first step is to develop a prototype compactor that monitors its own effectiveness. The system must collect data to determine its location on a job site, and how much of the energy it is expending that is delivered to the compaction surface. The less energy that goes into compaction, the better compacted the surface is. 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044
  31. 31. Machine Research Compaction Monitor Innoventor created custom LabVIEW software for SOLUTION: compaction monitoring. The software runs on an onboard ruggedized computer display. It collects and stores GPS and machine data for each 1’ x 1’ square over an entire job site. The data for each pass over a square is retained so that later analysis can reveal the compaction history of any spot. The software displays a real-time data map for the immediate vicinity of the compactor for the operator to identify weak spots. The user can also zoom out to see the entire site. 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044
  32. 32. Service Tools PROBLEM: Create software to add data acquisition capability to the hydraulic test systems that Cat sells to its dealers. These systems are used to test individual hydraulic parts (pumps, valves, etc.) that are part of a Caterpillar machine. The dealer performs diagnostic testing to determine the problem with a trouble part, and verifies repairs using the same system. 3600 Rider Trail South A Top 50 Company phone:314.785.0900 St. Louis MO 63045 (USA) www.innoventor.net fax:314.785.0044
  33. 33.
