Most people would not consider the idea of buying a house without first getting a survey of its condition carried out by an expert. Many machines cost far more than a house so wouldn't it make sense to do the same thing when investing in machinery? Well, many companies have availed themselves of UNIVIB's machine performance fingerprinting service to provide a "survey" of the performance of a machine that they are considering purchasing, or to compare the performance of several contenders.
UNIVIB's fingerprinting service is especially useful if you are considering having a machine refurbished, upgraded or revamped.
o Identifies sources of high vibrations from worn gears,
damaged bearings, etc. and pinpoints regions of flexibility caused by
slideway wear, for example.
o Helps to identify nature of refurbishment work required, and to prioritise activities.
o Helps guide and optimise the process of re-installation
of the machine.
o Helps fine-tune the performance of the refurbished machine.
o Assesses the effectiveness of the refurbishment work carried out.
o Provides a baseline fingerprint against which the performance of the machine can be compared in the future.
As an example, we have carried
out before and after refurbishment fingerprints on most of the roll grinding
machines installed in the roll shops of a large UK steel producer.,
If you are considering buying new machinery or having an exisiting machine upgraded or refurbished contact us first to find out how we can help you minimise the risk associated with your investement by providing you with the maximum possible information upfront about the performance of the machine in question.
