Torsional Issues: Stop Guessing and Measure the Problems Directly
Failure mechanisms such as misalignment, balance, or lubrication issues can cause machinery failure. Many of these problems can be identified using standard non-destructive testing (NDT) methods including vibration analysis, infrared thermography, and tribology....

Hear Failure from Miles Away
Experienced maintenance professionals can understand if a machine is healthy or not by walking up to it and using their senses – hearing, touch, smell, and sight. But this skill doesn’t scale when there are more plants than experts. This case study – a TechINSIGHT – shows how IoT maintenance solutions are helping machine analysts be in multiple places at once...

Prediction of Vibrational Fatigue on Bolted Joint Interfaces Using CAE
Vibrational fatigue is the failure of a material under cyclic loading caused by forced vibration. An excited structure responds at its natural frequencies, resulting in a dynamic stress load...
