Training Courses

Troubleshooting Mechanical Failures - Fatigue and Noise and Vibration

The purpose of this training and technology transfer programme is to explain the possible causes of Mechanical Failures in operating components and diagnosis of faults in rotating machinery. It covers the identification of sources of vibration which often result in unexpected stress levels causing fatigue damage. The measurement, data transfer and analysis of the recorded signals are fully discussed involving the delegates. The emphasis will be on understanding the entire system and monitoring various parameters aiming to significantly improve the reliability and performance of the plant.

Gearbox Systems Problems & Solutions

Many reliability and wear problems in transmission systems are not directly associated with the design of the components themselves but are the result of system dynamics: starting and transient torques, self excited vibration and the dynamics of the motor or engine and of the driven machine. Particular characteristics of bearings, couplings and gearbox mounting can also significantly affect system performance. Typical problems and solutions are discussed and instrumentation for troubleshooting noise, bearing failures, vibrations, and in-service load measurement demonstrated.
