The appearance of machine vibration is a problem that will always exist. The detection of the vibration point of origin and its intensity can provide information about whether there is damage in need of urgent repairs or if it ispossible to wait until the next scheduled maintenace.
Some possible causes of vibration include:
- Bearing vibration
- Sprocket defects
- Sprocket misalignment
- Mechanical looseness
- Belt or pulley defects
One of the main applications of Vibration Analysis is Predictive Maintenance: using the right equipment and a monitoring plan depending on the needs and requirement of every machine, we monitor the equipment in operation, so as to ensure that repairs take place only when needed. Consequently, we have less down time, better, more precise function of the machine and higher quality product, lower maintenance costs due to reduced interference and spare parts.
