For more than 30 years we have provided an international vibration analysis and troubleshooting service to the manufacturers and users of all kinds of manufacturing and industrial machinery

The primary objective of the service has been to identify the causes of abnormal vibrations, especially those that degrade the quality of the finished product, whether this be in terms of its surface appearance or its accuracy and repeatability.

All our vibration measurement and vibration analysis is carried out on-site using portable instrumentation and we are proud of our ability to respond most rapidly to calls for assistance. Although our recommendations may include criticisms of the design we realise that it is rarely an option to do anything about this, so will always try to suggest practical modifications that can be retro-fitted to the machinery. We will also do our utmost to find a simple, low-cost solution to a problem, such as that offered by the application of a tuned vibration absorber. Understanding the problem through vibration analysis is always the starting point.

We regularly work with steel and aluminium producers to deliver routine vibration monitoring of plant items in hot strip mills, including finishing stand gearboxes, roughing mill drives, crop shears, and numerous motors, pumps and fans. We have also been contracted, for over a decade in some cases, to provide regular vibration monitoring on grinding machines in a number of roll shops in UK and Europe.

If you think we might be of assistance to you in helping maximise your machinery up-time and productivity, then get in touch below or contact us on +44 (0) 161 924 1600.
