Case Study: The challenges of successful monitoring of machines with complex operating procedures-UK

Christer Larsson, SPM Academy, SPM Instrument


On some machines, complex operating procedures or process characteristics can make condition monitoring difficult. One such case is machine tools, but there are many others.

In this presentation, you will find out how to successfully implement vibration analysis for machine tools and other complex machinery with regards to:
* Measuring techniques
* Triggering of online measurement due to the short time windows for data acquisition
* How can vibration measurement be used in addition to monitoring bearing condition?


1. How to use and benefit from crafty online system functions
2. Basic knowledge in condition monitoring of machine tools
3. Machine tool spindle designs
