Why did the Advertising Standards Authority have to rule on what should be common knowledge? What is HAVS monitoring best practice, what do insurers say and could zero monitoring be the best option? You would have thought that the issues surrounding wrist-mounted vibration monitors had already been thoroughly settled. Apparently not so in the minds of some. The following is an outline of some of the very costly myths associated with
Vibration measurement, recording and analysis systems
As an extremely well equipped engineering consultancy, we use a very wide range of both proprietary and bespoke instrumentation across a very wide range of applications on a daily basis. Couple this with a background in automotive engineering and data analysis and you can see why we have acquired a reputation for developing innovative and practical analysis techniques and systems that have wide industrial and environmental application.
Consequently, we provide analysis, technical support and training services for a host of consultancies, Local Authorities, Councils and industrial concerns. Plus we have also developed a range of bespoke software and hardware for both general and specific project vibration measurement, storage, analysis and processing. These include:-
- FrequencyMaster – narrow band frequency recording and analysis software / hardware system. Low cost and easy to use – ideal for product testing and development.
- Protest – automated production line vibration testing system for product fault and quality control.
- Gear Test – specifically designed to detect gear tooth faults using vibration.
- HAV-Test – automated quality and refurbishment / overhaul / vibrating tool maintenance checking to ensure that the tool has been returned to “as new” condition. Reduces maintenance costs (fewer tools will need to be overhauled) and the risks associated with HAVS.
