Pinpoint Predictive Maintenance Service aims to reduce maintenance costs and equipment downtime in industrial or maintenance environments by detecting equipment faults in early stages of failure.
Vibration Analysis (VA) is a key component of a condition monitoring (CM) program (also known as predictive maintenance, or reliability maintenance).
Most commonly VA is used to detect faults in rotating equipment (Fans, Motors, Pumps, and Gearboxes etc.) such as Unbalance, Misalignment, rolling element bearing faults and resonance conditions.
VA uses sensors (accelerometers, proximity sensors, etc.) that use the units of Displacement, Velocity and Acceleration. These units are displayed as a time waveform (TWF), but most commonly the spectrum is used, derived from a fast Fourier transform of the TWF. The vibration spectrum provides important frequency information that can pinpoint the faulty component.
