One of the earliest signs of a machine failure is the propagation of vibration. By examining the vibration frequency and amplitude (vibration spectral analysis), we can determine if a machine is in a failure mode and if so, the severity of that failure.
The analysis of machinery vibration can detect and identify many machine faults. Giving you the time needed to complete repairs on your schedule, not the machines schedule. Not to mention, the elimination of catastrophic failures.
Types of faults identifiable using vibration analysis:
