Diagnostic Vibration Course
Learn how to Maintain Equipment using Diagnostic Vibration.
Course Length: 3 days
The Castle Training Academy is currently unable to access hotel facilities to run residential course, but we are still very much open for business and are able to pre-book on-your-site courses for later in 2020. We are also just about to launch a series of ‘Open’ courses, which will allow you to gain a competence qualification from the comfort of your own home or office. If you want to make sure you are notified of these courses, then please sign up to our mailing list or keep visiting these pages.
* Limited to 2 attendees per company *
To arrange for an on-site course, you can give us a call on 01723 584250 or you can fill in the form below detailing your requirements so that we can send you an individual quotation.
The Diagnostic Vibration Course covers the basics of preventative maintenance of machinery by helping you learn about how vibration measurements can give a prior indication that machinery is starting to fail. The course covers the fundamentals of vibration measurement, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) Analysis and how to make measurements and understand the results.
Who Should Attend
If there are any engineers at your organisation who are involved in maintenance diagnosis or problem solving, then this course could be ideal for them. Timely and accurate diagnosis of maintenance failures is critical to ensuring minimum disruption to production processes so any person key to this process in the workplace will benefit from attendance.
Aims and Objectives
The primary aim of this course is to equip delegates with the skills required to carry out diagnostic vibration measurements, collate the data and make a diagnosis based on the information presented. To achieve this, a number of fundamental principles have to be understood and the course will address these areas.
- To provide a background to the principles of vibration
- To deliver the fundamentals of FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analysis
- To give an insight into the principles of monitoring and measurement
- To provide hands-on experience of making measurements
- To develop and understanding of diagnostic evaluation
- To look into some depth at engineering solutions
This seminar based course is intended to give candidates the skills required to make diagnostic measurements of the vibration from machinery and to interpret those measurements to lead to a fault diagnosis. The course will start by looking into the fundamentals of vibration and measurements including Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), a tool used in diagnostic monitoring. Evaluation of the data from measurements is also a key part of the course, as being critical to the process of diagnosis.
As there is a practical element to this course, much of the work can be demonstrated with live examples, which reinforce the learning and helps with implementation after the course.
What You Will Achieve
This course leads to a Castle Training Academy certificate of competence in diagnostic vibration monitoring.
