Simple cost-efficient new FAG SmartCheck online vibration monitoring
A compact, robust and easily installed online measuring system is being introduced by Schaeffler Australia Pty Ltd for the continuous real-time monitoring of plant, machinery and process parameters to enhance equipment reliability and efficiency while avoiding costly breakdowns.
FAG SmartCheck vibration monitoring technology comprises an innovative, modular online measuring system for continuous monitoring on a decentralised basis to optimise productivity and overall process management. It can be used on assemblies where such monitoring was previously cost prohibitive, says Schaeffler Australia Pty Ltd Industrial Sector and Product Manager Mr Martin Grosvenor.
The intuitively operated and expandable technology – backed with comprehensive service throughout Australia and New Zealand – is suitable for early detection of rolling bearing damage, imbalances, and misalignments, among other faults, on diverse machinery and plant. Machinery to which it applies includes electric and geared motors, gearboxes and compressors, vacuum and fluid pumps, ventilators and fans, spindles and machine tools, separators and decanters and vibrating screens.
