Pulse, temperature and blood pressure are important indicators of a person's health condition. It is similar with machines. Because every machine vibrates to some extent during operation and this form of motion is easy to measure, vibrations are the basis for assessing machine conditions.
Condition monitoring essentially comprises the measurement and recording of typical overall vibration values and operating parameters. It provides information and allows the diagnosis of the general machine condition or very specific ‘disorders’ of the machine. Depending on their level of priority in the production process, machines can be continuously monitored or checked at regular intervals. This is achieved by means of online condition monitoring systems or portable data collectors with route functions and sufficient storage capacity.
Less machine downtime - more profit!
The earlier you can detect the deterioration of a machine's condition, the quicker and better you can plan and take the required corrective measures:
Not only does this save repair and maintenance costs, but it also increases the profitability of your installation, because the service life of your machines is optimally managed and utilized.
