In today’s competitive business world, manufacturers are seeking every competitive advantage they possibly can to increase their production and minimize costs while maintaining product quality.
The identification of defects within a machine, reducing equipment failures and unscheduled downtime is increasingly demanded of condition monitoring technologies.
Vibration analysis has proven to be a very effective tool for identifying mechanical faults within machinery and combined with regular oil sampling the health condition and diagnostics of the equipment will reveal significant information regarding the wellbeing of your equipment.
The use of vibration analysis can determine problems caused due to improper installation, machining errors, insufficient lubrication, improper shaft or sheave alignment, loose bolting, bent shafts, and much more. It can, in most cases, detect these problems long before the damage can be seen by maintenance, and long before it damages other machine components.
