Vibration for Service Centers (12-part webinar series)
This 12-part recording covers a wide range of topics on vibration.
Members rely on EASA to provide technical assistance and training in all areas related to machinery repair. In the area of machinery vibration, there are training providers that offer general classes in vibration analysis and balancing, but the content is geared to plant maintenance personnel who would be conducting in-plant predictive maintenance services. Some key areas important to EASA service center technicians is not covered adequately, and much of the content does not apply to vibration testing conducted in the service center. This course is designed to address those shortcomings and provide fundamental training in vibration analysis and balancing that directly applies to technicians working in the service center.
Available as a printed booklet or as a downloadable PDF.
Main goals of the series
This webinar series was designed to:
- Provide EASA service center technicians with the technical knowledge they need to effectively measure and diagnose vibration on machines being tested in the service center.
- Provide the foundation understanding necessary to use vibration data as an indicator of machinery condition
- Provide the fundamental knowledge of dynamic balancing necessary to use common balancing instruments in the service center
Who would benefit from watching this series?
Service center technicians who measure and analyze machinery vibration, and those who must evaluate the vibration data will benefit greatly from the fundamental understanding and knowledge provided by this training series. Service center engineers who may be involved in writing, interpreting and applying vibration and balancing specifications and tolerances will gain a practical understanding of the terms, definitions and parameters encountered in those specifications.
As with any technical subject, fundamental math skills will allow attendees to quickly comprehend concepts and apply techniques. Vibration results from the mechanical and electrical forces at work in machinery, and a fundamental understanding of those forces, and machine components that cause them, will aid in the understanding and application of the subject matter.
