"Very well presented and explained fundamentals on an important consumable that isn't well understood. I have a background and this was great. The explanations were second to none if an interested person had just realised bolts had technical requirements to be considered other than torque to assembly."

Troubleshooting Mechanical Failures: Fatigue and Noise and Vibration

The purpose of this training and technology transfer programme is to explain the possible causes of Mechanical Failures in operating components and diagnosis of faults in rotating machinery. It covers the identification of sources of vibration which often result in unexpected stress levels causing fatigue damage. The measurement, data transfer and analysis of the recorded signals are fully discussed involving the delegates. The emphasis will be on understanding the entire system and monitoring various parameters aiming to significantly improve the reliability and performance of the plant.

The seminar will cover:

  • Load carrying concept of Bolts and the Problem of Preload loss
  • The Dynamics of Load
  • Transmission, starting vs transient torque
  • Tackling the role of Self excited vibration on fatigue
  • The importance of Gear Alignment
  • Problem Solving using State of the
  • Art Data Acquisition & Analysis Techniques
  • In-Service Unattended Load
  • (Torque) Data Collection Techniques
  • Case Studies in Rail, Marine Propulsion, Renewables, Automotive and Heavy Industries
  • State of Art Condition Monitoring Techniques
  • Discussion on any work-related subject raised by the participants

Ensuring optimal performance for industrial gearboxes requires more than just examining individual components. System dynamics, including starting and transient torques, self-excited vibrations, and even motor/engine dynamics, significantly impact both reliability and wear. Additionally, seemingly minor details like bearing characteristics, couplings, and gearbox mounting can contribute to performance issues.

This course explores common gearbox troubleshooting challenges faced in industrial settings, offering proven solutions through the lens of our gearbox expertise. We’ll showcase advanced instrumentation for tackling noise, bearing failures, vibrations, and in-service load measurement, empowering you to optimise your OEM gearboxes for maximised performance and extended lifespan.

The seminar will cover:

  • Tackling unexplained bearing and gear element failures
  • The dynamics of gearbox systems
  • Gearbox noise and Vibration
  • Problem Solving – Using state of the art Data Acquisition & Analysis Techniques
  • Wind Turbine Gearboxes: Type Testing, Instrumentation & Early Stage Troubleshooting
  • Gear Alignment Instrumentation
  • In Service Unattended Load (Torque) Data Collection Techniques
  • Case Studies in Rail, Marine Propulsion, Renewables, Automotive and Heavy Industries
  • State of Art Conditioning Monitoring Techniques
  • Discussion on any work-related subject raised by the participants
