via PRNewswire

PALO ALTO , Calif., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The Vibration Monitoring and Analysis industry has tremendous applications given the developments in other mechanical and electro-mechanical industries that subsequently require better testing and condition monitoring systems. Hence, there is a need to developmore advanced vibration monitoring tools that are cost-effective and more efficient, adapting to the changes in these other industries, both generic and specific.

Advances in microelectronics technology, more powerful sensor technologyand better control software have driven progress in the vibration monitoring industry as well. With an increase in applications such as structural health monitoring or biomechanical engineering, where vibration monitoring is becoming useful in assessing physical ailments as well, the field is seeing growth.

"Given that all operating machines vibrate, an increase in vibration almost always results in deterioration of running conditions," says Frost & Sullivan Technical Insights Research Analyst Mahaneeya Raman. "Monitoring vibration levels of machinery provides essential information about themachine's running condition and the analysis of vibration data helps identify credential causative factors including imbalance, misalignment and bearing defects."

Ideally, by means of an enterprise asset management system or a computerized maintenance management system, an overall picture of theoperations equipment and total plant condition could be derived by integrating this information with other asset system health data. With the extended use of wireless technology and the Internet, online remote monitoring of plant/machine conditions could be done with faster and effective data transmission and control extensions.
