Monitoring of Torsional Vibrations can be a very successful way to detect problems in drive systems and gearboxes such as bearing failure.
Using an IME encoder, it is possible from a single device to track bearing run out and torsional vibrations.
In the case of a transmission or gearbox, devices integrated to input and output shafts facilitate a detailed analysis that can show bearing failure, gear wear degradation, oil contamination, shaft imbalance, bearing rub and mechanical failure.
Remote Monitored Systems (LON:RMS) is focused on the continued development of the Company’s ‘Survey & Inspection’ business. RMS also has a majority interest in GyroMetric Systems Limited, which develops and manufactures digital monitoring and safeguarding systems for rotating shafts.
