Vibration Analysis and Vibration Testing Solutions
Vibration analysis and vibration testing are essential in every product design and maintenance. Vibration may influence the durability and reliability of mechanical systems or structures and cause problems such as damage, abnormal stopping, and disaster which may lead to severe safety issues. Vibration measurement is an important countermeasure to prevent these problems.
Rotating machinery analysis is primarily concerned with signals relating to the rotational speed and its harmonics. Orders are harmonics of the rotational speed. Evaluating orders can be critically important on many types of rotating machines. Dewesoft offers easy to use solutions for FFT analysis, order tracking analysis, torsional vibration, orbit analysis, and octave band analysis.
Our data acquisition systems (vibration analyzers) offer flexibility and the most precise vibration measurement with an unmatched signal to noise ratio - more than 130 dB and dynamic range up to 160 dB. We support any kind of vibration sensors (IEPE, MEMS, and Charge accelerometers) and rotational sensors - analog and digital tacho probes, counter, and encoder sensors. We offer a benchtop, portable, and multi-channel vibration analyzer with the world-best vibration analysis software included.
To offer a turn-key solution we compliment the product line with vibration sensors and actuators for vibration testing - IEPE accelerometer sensors, modal impact hammers, and modal/inertial vibration shakers.
What is Vibration Analysis?
Vibration Analysis is defined as the technique of measuring vibration to identify anomalies in industrial and other machinery. Using FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) algorithms, Vibration Analyzers separate vibration signals into amplitude and frequency components to facilitate failure recognition.
Vibration analysis can detect problems in all types of machinery such as displacement, imbalance, bearing failures, mechanical looseness, misalignment, electrical motor faults, bent shafts, gearbox failures, resonance and natural frequencies, empty space or bubbles (cavitation) in pumps, and critical speeds.
Dewesoft also offers machine condition monitoring solutions for permanent monitoring and preventing such machinery failures.
Vibration Knowledge Base?
Octave Band Analysis and Analyzer
Octave band analysis is an indispensable tool for sound measurement because it gives a close approximation of how the human ear responds. Dewesoft octave band analyzer meets all of the IEC and ANSI specifications for octave filters.
With Orbit Plot For Machine Health Condition Assessment
Precise rotor movement measurements and advanced analysis tailored for turbomachinery applications. Dewesoft Orbit Analysis is a complete solution that will help you improve the operating efficiency, lower wear, and prevent any potential critical failures of your machine.
Human and Whole Body Vibration Testing
The human and whole-body vibration module tests and measures the effect of vibration on the human body. The extracted parameters allow the simple assessment of the injuries risk for workers, exposed to constant vibration. Our solution supports the whole-body and hand-arm vibration measurement are supported according to all relevant international standards - ISO 5349, ISO 8041, ISO 2631-1 and ISO 2631-5.
Order Analysis for Rotating Machinery
Order analysis is a technique for analyzing noise and vibration signals in rotating or reciprocating machinery such as engines, compressors, turbines, and pumps. Dewesoft provides flexible order analysis software and data acquisition hardware for analyzing any rotating machinery. The solution is extremely powerful in combination with other modules like torsional vibration analysis, combustion analysis, or power analysis. It can provide complete diagnostics of generators, combustion engines, and rotating shafts.
Static and Dynamic Balancing of Rotating Machines
Balanced rotors are essential for the smooth operation of rotating machinery. Unbalance will create high vibrations, reducing machine life and causing material defects. Our single and dual-plane balancing tool is a great tool to eliminate unbalance on-site reducing long down times.
Rotational and Torsional Vibration Analysis
Torsional vibrations are quite often a source of issues and faults on the rotating shafts. Our rotational and torsional vibration analysis module combined with the order tracking analysis module is a perfect tool for troubleshooting shafts, crankshafts, gears in automotive, industrial or power-generation applications.
