Course Description

Machines deteriorate as they get older so we can expect a certain amount of performance falloff 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. Failure analysis and predictive maintenance techniques, including vibration analysis are discussed in the course with a view to optimising the maintenance engineering effort while maximising production.  Other techniques that will be addressed include infrared thermography, passive ultrasonics, tribology and performance monitoring.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding of machine failure analysis techniques
  • Understanding of a range of predictive maintenance technologies
  • Learning about the potential contribution of each these technologies to maintenance efficiency
  • Exploring hints and tips for practical application of these technologies so as to achieve the best results
