Machines deteriorate as they get older so we can expect a certain amount of performance falloff and general deterioration of the machine. If we understand the failure mechanisms that are in place we can identify which parameters best indicate the deterioration of the machine.
Failure analysis and Predictive Maintenance techniques, including vibration analysis, are discussed in the training course with a view to optimising the maintenance engineering effort while maximising production. Other techniques that will be addressed include infrared thermography, passive ultrasonics, tribology and performance monitoring.
At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar participants will have:
- An understanding of Machine Failure Analysis techniques
- An understanding of a range of Predictive Maintenance Technologies
- Knowledge of the potential contribution of each these technologies to maintenance efficiency
- Guidelines indicating how these technologies can interact with and support each other
- Hints and Tips for practical application of these technologies so as to achieve the best results
A practical approach to developing an action plan to utilise these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits.
This GLOMACS Machinery Failure, Vibration & Predictive Maintenance training seminar will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, case studies and interactive worked examples. Relevant case studies will be provided to illustrate the application of each tool in an operations environment. Each learning point will be re-enforced with practical exercises. There will be ample opportunities for discussion and sharing experiences.
Analysis of machine failures and predictive maintenance of rotating plant is vital to the budgetary success of the operations organisation. On completion of this GLOMACS Machinery Failure, Vibration & Predictive Maintenance training seminar, the delegate will be able to critically analyse the methodologies employed within the organisation and instigate improvements where required.
Technical knowledge is key to effective control and peer respect within any maintenance organisation; when this is achieved personal satisfaction follows. This GLOMACS Machinery Failure, Vibration & Predictive Maintenance training seminar will give the delegate the required level of technical knowledge and skill to achieve that personal satisfaction.
