About the Course

Vibration Analysis is one of the most powerful condition-based maintenance technologies and the cornerstone of many predictive maintenance programs. It is also widely utilised for troubleshooting and fault diagnosis of machinery and structures. In recent years, much emphasis has been given to online or permanently installed vibration monitoring for inaccessible machinery, which is critical to the process and very expensive.

The future advancement of equipment condition monitoring technologies is intrinsically tied to the application and development of online or permanently installed systems. As asset management and reliability advantages become widely accepted and aggressively implemented, significant emphasis is placed on equipment condition monitoring. In fact, the historical barrier between production and maintenance will soon fall victim to the understanding that equipment condition data is as important as process parameters and significantly influences production, quality, safety, and profitability.

This 5-day Machinery Vibration Analysis training course comprehensively explains machinery vibration analysis. It focuses on the principles, techniques, and applications necessary for effective condition monitoring and maintenance of rotating equipment. Delegates will delve into the theoretical foundations of vibration, hands-on analysis methods, and real-world case studies, gaining the expertise needed to assess and manage machinery health.

Core Objectives

This training course will assist the delegates in gaining hands-on experience in analysing vibration data, interpreting results, and implementing effective maintenance strategies. They will be equipped with the skills necessary to conduct machinery vibration analysis, identify potential issues, and contribute to enhancing the reliability and performance of industrial machinery.
