The Best Tool Available for Learning Machinery Diagnosis

To gain an in-depth understanding of different vibration signatures, controlled experiments on a device that emulates real world machinery are needed. While analysis of a single machinery fault may be beneficial, there are many occasions when the analysis of the interaction between dynamic stiffness, resonance, and speed is essential in order to gain an understanding of real world vibration spectra. With the MFS, the expertise required to diagnose industrial machinery problems in well controlled experiments can be developed and enhanced. With a plant running at full production, it is virtually impractical to gain an understanding of the kinetics and dynamics of machinery without adversely affecting production and profits: The MFS enables offline training and experimentation which in turn will minimize production downtime.
