Vibration Analysis and Balancing Tips for Service Centers

Including Balancing Tips: In-House and On-Site


Course description:

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. In addition, EASA service technicians commonly are called on to do field service troubleshooting and dynamic balancing in customer’s facilities. This training included tips for applying the fundamental knowledge of vibration analysis and balancing for these field service situations.

Course Objectives:

Provide the basic knowledge necessary to understand vibration parameters and their relationship to machine condition.

  • Vibration amplitude, frequency, phase and high frequency parameters
  • Applicable ISO standards and tolerances

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.

  • Vibration parameters that should be considered
  • Measurement and analysis techniques
  • Machine mounting considerations

Provide the fundamental knowledge of dynamic balancing necessary to use common balancing instruments in the service center.

  • How to set a balance tolerance
  • Balancing machine setup, special fixtures and choice balancing speeds
  • When to use single-plane, two-plane or static-couple methods

Who would benefit from this training?

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. 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.
