Machine Vibration Analysis

Vibration analysis helps prolong the life of machinery. All machine components vibrate, and their interaction with one another and the operational environment can introduce fatigue or damage such as imbalance, misalignment, component failure, resonance, bearing defect, and more.

Random Testing Software

Gain a comprehensive understanding of a machine’s response to the vibrations it encounters in the operational environment.

With up to 26,000 lines of control, the VibrationVIEW Random software provides the highest possible control in an easy-to-use format. Analyze random data with a comprehensive suite of graph display options or generate a test from recorded data with our advanced test development options.

Available graph displays in Random include power/acceleration spectral density (PSD), scatter plot, and kurtosis versus time.

Analyze Rotating Components

Order analysis separates rotational or reciprocating vibration into orders. Fatigue and damage are often related to harmonics, and analysis of order content helps to locate and prevent product failure. Analyzing order content is critical for a complete evaluation of rotating machinery.

In the ObserVIEW Order Analysis software, extract orders of interest from a recording using a defined tachometer channel. Access tachometer-based spectrograms, compare data across domains, and generate a sine-on-random test with STAG.

Identify Resonances

Resonance occurs when an external excitation vibrates at a machine component’s natural frequency. The resonance increases the intensity of the natural vibration and leads to damage or failure.

Sine Testing

In the VibrationVIEW Sine software, automatically detect resonances using a swept and/or fixed-frequency sine wave test with control of acceleration, velocity, and displacement. Then, use a sine resonance tracked dwell (SRTD) test to determine the number of cycles required to generate a failure at a specific resonant frequency.

Features include easy test entry, configurable tracking filters on input channels, and a large numeric readout.

Modal Testing

Modal software divides a complex response into simple mode shapes, each with individual parameters that describe the item’s response to excitation. The overall response helps engineers determine resonances and validate the design.

Modal testing software

With the ObserVIEW Modal Testing software:

  • Manage table of hits per location and review responses
