Vibration and noise levels on plant and equipment are indicative of condition. Too much vibration or noise is detrimental to quality, reliability, safety and performance.
With more than 25 years practicable application knowledge, the range of machinery and rotors covered in that time is extensive and subsequently our customers and their applications are wide and varied.
Broadly speaking, we concentrate our expertise in 4 main areas:
Vibration in an engine regardless of its source, is detrimental to power, performance and longevity. Vibration is wasted energy and it can be greatly reduced by balancing all the rotating and reciprocating parts to finer tolerances than traditionally found in common practice.

Poor finish, ovality, chatter and reduced tool life can all be consequences of excessive imbalance on the tool, tool holder, spindle or drive motor. Excessive noise and vibration can usually be attributed to imbalance,but could be indicative of looseness, bad drive belts, misalignment, electrical faults and quite commonly resonance.

An important part of modern maintenance strategy must include, where appropriate, the effective use of condition monitoring. The choice of monitoring equipment and its operating costs can be staggering. With resources at an all-time low, often fire-fighting is the reality strategy. If this is the case, optimise the repair by qualifying condition through a vibration analysis check. Read More about our maintenance services..
