This course builds upon what was learned in the Data Acquisition computer-based training, providing the foundation for machinery diagnostics. The hands-on approach gives students the experience they need to feel confident when taking action at their plant. This is a "must have" course for those who interpret or plan on interpreting machine vibration and position data to determine machine condition.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • Understand how the fundamentals of machine design and behavior are reflected in the vibration measurements.
  • Learn how to reduce machine vibration data into usable plot formats. Learn which plot formats are best to use in the different stages of machine diagnostics.
  • Learn the causes, affects and indicators of the typical machine malfunctions; including recognition of problems such as unbalance, misalignment, rubs, shaft cracks and fluid-induced instabilities.

Course Length: 5 days
Materials Provided: Training Manual (MDwithS1_Table_of_Contents) & Lab Stations with all hardware.
Prerequisite: To maximize the benefit of this course, we suggest that the student purchases the Data Acquisition CBT and review it prior to attending this course.
