The innovation aims in machine building with regard to product quality and throughput are to increase the accuracy, the velocity and the size in the first place.

However, the accuracy of a process is questioned by an enlargement of the velocity if one considers that the excitation amplitudes increase for all vibration phenomena with increasing velocity. The demand to increase throughput by means of larger system widths normally leads to a mass increase and a stiffness reduction at the same time. Therefore, it must be an important aim to make use of lightweight construction designs for these applications.

However, the potential of lightweight construction technology is limited by lower damping referring to vibration problems Summarizing it can be stated that for the future the vibration behavior of machines has to be moved into the centre of dimensioning since the innovation aims are currently not achieved due to vibration problems. The useful way to overcome the design dilemma with active systems will be shown herein at the example of an aggregate of the worlds largest wood-free coated paper production line.
