What is Vibration Analysis and Shock Pulse Monitoring?
Vibration analysis is done to analyze the realiability and health of the machines and their components by looking for anomalies and monitoring change from the vibration signature of a system. The vibration of any object in motion is characterized by variations of amplitude, intensity, and frequency. These vibration signatures can be correlated to physical phenomena, making it possible to use vibration data to gain insights into the health of equipment.
