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?

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..

If you’re a technician and it’s your job to take these readings with a hand-held data collector, this trend can be described with one word - boring. While there is always value in taking a reading on a rotating asset and using your 5 senses to look for issues that might not be picked up with vibration, this only extends so far for machines that rarely have issues..
