The benefits of vibration screening
Vibration can identify problems before other symptoms, including heat, sound, electrical consumption, and lubricant impurities. More than half of unplanned downtime is attributed to mechanical failures. While many things can impact the life of a machine, once the first signs of failure appear, a machine generally has only a matter of months before failing completely. Vibration testing provides a way to determine where the machine is on the failure curve and react appropriately.
