Engineering Integrity Society Webinar
Non-contact Vibration Measurement and Visualisation
“There are huge benefits in assessing the dynamics of structures through non-contact methods. It is quick, convenient and non-invasive. It allows for a fuller assessment of rotating, hot or large structures that would be problematic or impossible with traditional contact vibration sensors. With advances in digital cameras, laser hardware, and increasing processing power, the non-contact vibration measurement and visualisation technologies have progressed significantly. This two-part live webinar presents three very different technologies that illustrate some of the capabilities now available, providing the opportunity to discuss these with some of the experts in this field.”
About the Event
In the first live Webinar Keith Gallant, Reliability Engineer and Motion Amplification (MA) specialist at Reliability Solutions Ltd, discusses using MA Camera technology to assist in the root cause analysis of many different types of industrial vibration problems. He will demonstrate, using video of some real-world case studies, how vibration is visualised to assist in diagnosis in assets include rotating equipment, process piping and structural problems across a wide range of industries.
About the presenter: Keith Gallant
Keith is the UK’s first certified Motion Amplification Analyst, he is responsible for consulting on problem machinery and applications utilising Motion Amplification and Vibration Analysis across a variety of industries, both here in the UK and Internationally.
Think about the forces” and “Say what you see” are my guiding principles for understanding and solving vibration problems. Reliability and Condition Monitoring are my passions and I am privileged to work every day with Engineers doing something I really love. On a day to day I could be working with equipment owners to improve reliability with a holistic approach, troubleshooting bad actors or testing components are built as designed. I thoroughly enjoy a challenging experience in a new environment with great people. I try my best to surround myself with positive individuals who are equally as passionate and whom I can learn from.
About the Engineering Integrity Society
The Engineering Integrity Society is a long established charitable society focusing on the areas of fatigue, testing and durability. Members of the EIS have many years of experience in these fields gained through working in some of the best known companies in the industry.
The EIS offers a unique forum for industrial engineers to exchange ideas and experience. Since its foundation in 1985 the Society has made an important contribution to engineering science, holding major National and International Conferences, organising and co-ordinating specialist task groups and presenting technical seminars. Membership is worldwide.
Today’s engineers must be able to handle problems which cover a variety of engineering disciplines. The EIS provides a pragmatic and practical arena for engineers who need access to information on a multidisciplinary basis, across a wide range of industries.
About Motion Amplification Technology
Why is Visualisation so Important?
Imagine what you could do by visualising faults in machinery, infrastructure, and human performance. You can look at numbers and analysis from tools like accelerometers, strain gauges and modelling software and still not be able to visualise what the problem is. Being able to see what is happening can change your perspective completely along with allowing more targeted and cost effective approach to fault analysis. There are tools to magnify an image or to offer point measurements on a machine or piece of infrastructure, but no real way to see what is happening live and over the whole asset until now. RDI offers the first non-invasive, simple, and cost effective way to visualise what is happening beyond what you can see with your eye.
Pump Base Problem Visualisation – Finding the root cause
Great example showing the power of MA as a visualization tool. The pump shows poor base security. Vibration levels were 8mm/sec RMS.
We look forward to seeing you online!
