Machines deteriorate as they get older so we can expect a certain amount of performance fall-off and general deterioration of the machine. If we understand the failure mechanisms that are in place we can identify which parameters best indicate the deterioration of the machine. In this comprehensive course, the delegates will benefit from using modern methods and technologies to learn reliability basics, fault analysis, and monitoring techniques.
Failure analysis and Predictive Maintenance techniques including vibration analysis are discussed in the course with a view to optimizing the maintenance engineering effort while maximizing production. Other techniques that will be addressed include infrared thermography, passive ultrasonic, tribology, and performance monitoring.
What Do Participants Learn?
Understand and gain knowledge on machinery failure, vibration analysis, and predictive maintenance
Determine why machines fail and how to identify the “bad actors”
Determine the range of Predictive Maintenance Technologies
Recognize the potential contribution of each these technologies to maintenance efficiency
Use the guidelines indicating how these technologies can interact with and support each other
Illustrate the hints and tips for practical application of these technologies so as to achieve the best results
Apply a practical approach to developing an action plan to utilize these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits
Who Should Attend?
This course is directed towards supervisors, team leaders, and managers in maintenance, engineering, and production. The course will also benefit anyone who wishes to update themselves on predictive maintenance technologies and failure analysis techniques, as well as those who have to judge the suitability of these technologies for their needs and learn how to implement them for the benefit of their organizations.
What Will the Learning Experience Include?
Comprehensive pre-program activities include:
