What's Your Machine's Signature?

Posted September 05, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

All machines have a unique vibration signature that changes as operating conditions alter. When a disruption in signature occurs, engineers analyze the severity of the faulty condition. This piece from Engineering360 highlights the types of analyzers that monitor signatures, including accelerometers, displacement sensors, and velocity sensors. Additionally, the author discusses critical features of vibration analyzers such as accuracy and sampling frequency. The takeaway message: vibration analysis is an important predictive maintenance tool that helps detect failures and prevent costly equipment downtime.
