Knowing the condition of your bearings can save you time, money and production by minimizing downtime. Determining the condition of your bearings will ensure your machines are running properly, have adequate grease and lubrication, and can provide assessment of overall machine condition. Machine condition monitoring is the process of monitoring your machine to predict mechanical wear and failure.
Vibration, noise, and temperature measurements are often used as indications of machine condition. Data trends can be used to show information over a period of time to help determine the health of the machine, and detect faults before they occur, which can prevent unexpected failure and costly repair.
