Komatsu CMS’s Vibration Analysis (VA) service is the process of reviewing the vibration levels of rotating machinery. These include engines, transmissions, bearings, alternators and electric motors fitted to mechanical and electrical drive trucks and loaders as well as hydraulic excavators and electric shovels and draglines.
Using VA, our analysts can identify equipment faults ranging from defects in bearings and gears to imbalance, mechanical looseness, misalignment and resonance.
The process uses a VA data collector and sensor to record and analyse vibration signals as either amplitude versus time or amplitude versus frequency.
This process can be used both reactively, to troubleshoot a poorly performing machine, as well as proactively, to catch issues before they cause significant downtime.
VA is quick, non-intrusive, inexpensive and provides detailed and comprehensive information about a very wide range of faults.
