Condition-based maintenance is an important strategy used to achieve the quality and capacity that is required in manufacturing today. To achieve these goals, vibration analysis is helpful for determining rotating equipment condition and performance. Collecting correct and usable vibration data is critical to the success of any vibration analysis program. Unfortunately, there are challenges that must be overcome in order to provide this data that were not necessarily issues in the past.
