Few things in your business life can be more annoying than a large envelope marked CONFIDENTIAL that contains repair specifications from a potential "large" customer. Right? Well things may not be as bad as they seem. Vibration standards, properly written, not only benefit the customer by adding longevity to their equipment but also can equally benefit your business by reducing warranty claims. Vibration analysis has been determined to be the best indicator of rotating equipment mechanical faults. Identification of frequency components can be a valuable tool in determining if faults exist before returning the finished product to the customer.
