Using vibration to perform predictive maintenance on equipment is probably the best way to prevent catastrophic failure on machines that see a lot of use. This is especially true if the machines are of the rotating variety, such as extruders, mixers, pumps, and compressors. These are just a small handful of the machines that can benefit greatly from Vibration Analysis in Austin. Here are some benefits that one can expect from this proven method.
- Vibration analysis is very cost-efficient as it allows the business to replace just exactly what needs to be fixed. The price tag of the repair will include only the part which is broken and the cost of the labor needed to either fix it or replace it. This alleviates the need to replace the entire machine due to it falling into a state of catastrophic failure.
- Due to the ability to schedule repairs, there is a great reduction in the cost of labor. Instead of paying a repair technician to perform “guesswork” by taking the machine apart and trying to figure out what is wrong, the vibration analysis in Austin can detect exactly what part or parts are going bad before they fail. Since all parts are kept in a state of surveillance, the frequency of repairs is also lessened, thereby increasing the bottom line of the company.
- Predictive maintenance results in the ability to fix the problem component or components during scheduled downtime. When downtime is unscheduled, it can result in the loss of many thousands of dollars. A proactive maintenance team can ensure that they do not interfere with line production at all.
- Safety is another huge reason why predictive maintenance is the way to go. By fixing problems before the equipment completely fails, the workers are exposed to much less harm than they would otherwise.
- The efficiency of the workers’ time on the clock is also increased as they are busy producing, not waiting for a machine to be fixed.
