COURSE NAME:Machinery Failure Analysis & Prevention


This course can be scheduled at your convenience, to request this course please click here

Machines deteriorate as they get older so we can expect a certain amount of performance falloff and general deterioration of the machine. If we understand the failure mechanisms that are in place we can identify which parameters best indicate the deterioration of the machine. Failure analysis and Predictive Maintenance techniques, including vibration analysis, are discussed in the course with a view to optimising the maintenance engineering effort while maximising production. Other techniques that will be addressed include infrared thermography, passive ultrasonic, tribology and performance monitoring.


At the end of this course participants will have: An understanding of Machine Failure Analysis techniques An understanding of a range of Predictive Maintenance Technologies Knowledge of the potential contribution of each these technologies to maintenance efficiency Guidelines indicating how these technologies can interact with and support each other Hints and Tips for practical application of these technologies so as to achieve the best results A practical approach to developing an action plan to utilise these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits The knowledge gained in this course will: Allow the delegate to carry out analysis of machine failures Enable the delegate to develop a proactive maintenance regime within the organisation. Give the delegate confidence to carry out failure analyses thereby avoiding repetitive failures. Allow tighter control of maintenance budgets by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service.
