Lexington, MA, United States, 2010/09/27 - The video, made in partnership with Mobius Institute, discusses how vibration testing can be the first step in a more proactive approach to mechanical maintenance.
Fluke Corporation has made available a video primer on vibration testing and mechanical maintenance, which can be viewed at assets.fluke.com/.
In the video, geared to maintenance professionals, Fluke has partnered with Mobius Institute, a recognized vibration training and certification organization, to talk about how vibration testing can be the first step in a more proactive approach to mechanical maintenance. Jason Tranter, the founder of Mobius Institute, speaks about the benefits of vibration monitoring, the ripple effects and financial cost of machine failure, ways to reduce machine failure, practicing precision maintenance, and some telltale indicators of machine health and potential failure. Says Tranter in the video, “There is no doubt that vibration monitoring is the engineer’s best diagnostic tool.”
The video concludes with information about the Fluke 810 Vibration Tester, a new troubleshooting tool that can locate and diagnose common mechanical problems and prioritize repair actions.
Vibration is a characteristic of virtually all industrial machines. When vibration increases beyond normal levels, it may indicate only normal wear - or it may be a sign or source of trouble and signal the need for further assessment of the underlying causes, or for immediate maintenance action.
Maintenance professionals will leave the video with a better understanding of the importance of maintaining a regular vibration monitoring program, its impact on the company’s bottom line, and information about troubleshooting tools that can be easily integrated into a preventive maintenance program.
