The 2020 calendar year has certainly brought with it many challenges for a variety of industries. The medical field, pulp and paper industry and food supply chain have all been significantly impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. At the grocery store, people experienced (or are still experiencing) empty shelves, limited food supply and less variety when doing weekly shopping. In March 2020, grocery and supply sales increased 29% from the previous year (3).

The best AI for vibration condition monitoring is the one that does not remove humans from the process
Industrial Artificial Intelligence (IAI) has one of the greatest potentials to affect the way companies manage their maintenance practices. Letting Machine Learning (ML) and algorithms take more responsibility can lead to more productive work routine and less unplanned stops and the high costs associated with it. But even with several proof points, why are maintenance professionals, particularly vibration analysts, still skeptical about it?

In the last 20 years the industry has improved predictive maintenance processes and the tools used to perform it. In particular, vibration analysis technology has evolved to unimaginable levels.
What is vibration analysis? And more importantly, what do you need to know to start learning about it? Well, I invite you to read this article to explore it with me.

The whole world is being transformed thanks to technological advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and predictive analytics. With the promise of Industry 4.0, and its application in everything from health care, movie ratings, and fraud protection - to name but a few - the world will never be the same. And with the availability of wireless sensors, fast networks, and massive storage, condition monitoring, and especially vibration analysis, will never be the same. There are giant commercial enterprises and small silicon-valley startups that have identified this opportunity, and industrial organizations that are finally waking up to the opportunity of predictive maintenance.

This webinar will introduce how criticality analysis can be utilised in setting up your programme and henceforth applied dynamically to prioritise maintenance. It will also introduce the concept of risk-based compliance and how this can be turned into a primary key performance indicator for any predictive maintenance programme.
An insight into how the above approach can be applied will be demonstrated through digitalising risk-based predictive maintenance / condition monitoring reporting.

More than 300 million electric motors are used in infrastructure, large buildings, and industry globally. These motors account for about 2/3rds of the industrial power consumption. Electricity is required in almost all areas of the plant to provide the driving force that either operates the equipment that produces the products or provides the services that the plant’s equipment was built to perform..

As predictive maintenance teams in industrial facilities strive for a more complete picture of their equipment’s health, high frequency vibration measurements have become a crucial addition to identify faults such as motor and pump bearing defects and gear tooth inconsistencies in high-speed gearboxes. As a result, there is an upsurge in demand for vibration sensors with a high frequency response.

Balancing cost reduction and efficiency improvement targets is a common source of frustration for maintenance and engineering managers. For facilities that operate continuously with no window for unplanned shutdowns, poor reliability and availability of machinery is far more serious, but even in factories with regular opportunities for maintenance, recovery can still be expensive and time consuming.
