Vibration Analysis & Trending

Vibration analysis and trending is a method of evaluating current machine condition and monitoring a machine’s changes over a period of time. It can also be used to pinpoint a source of several problems such as misalignment, imbalance and bearing issues. Vibration Trending and Analysis can be performed on all rotating equipment.

Infrared Thermography

Infrared thermography can provide significant early warning of potential problems with critical equipment before catastrophic failure. With infrared thermography you can identify overheating electrical connections and other machine components, scheduling repairs to be made during planned downtime.

Benefits of Infrared Thermography

  • Reduce unscheduled downtime
  • Detect problems quickly
  • Assess priorities for corrective action
  • Reduce catastrophic failure of equipment

Applications for Infrared Thermography

  • Power distribution and control cabinets
  • Building envelopes & structures
  • Electric motor conduit box & frame temperature
  • Mechanical bearing inspections
  • Electrical systems
  • Process problems due to heat loss

Dynamic Balancing

Nearly anything that rotates, or is supported in bearings that allow it to rotate, needs balancing to insure quality performance.

Benefits of Dynamic Balancing

  • Compensates for assembly tolerances, unbalance of pulleys, gears, coupling & and other added components of new or overhauled machinery.
  • Applicable on all rotating equipment
  • Increases bearing life
  • Reduces vibration
  • Minimizes structural stress

Laser Alignment

All precision equipment must be aligned in order to function accurately. Maine Industrial technicians can provide print outs and live visual displays detailing specifications and tolerances for alignment. Laser alignment can be done on any size equipment from 5 hp and up on both horizontal and vertical motors. We also have the capability for aligning pulleys and belts.

Benefits of Laser Alignment

  • Properly aligned equipment runs smoother & more efficiently, resulting in fewer breakdowns
  • Vibration reduction
  • Ultimately increases production and profits
  • Hi-lite and correct hidden soft-foot alignment defects
  • Fast and accurate machine installation through precision alignment
