The Missing Link Between Lubrication and Vibration Analysis
Getting beyond run-to-fail and reactive reliability and maintenance programs requires time, staff, and training that is difficult to prioritize in the resource-conscious industries that leverage Fluid Power. Therefore we rely heavily on service and vendor organizations to support with guided expertise – but how do we know the optimal choice between vibration and lubrication analysis when it comes to our overall equipment effectiveness? They often position against each other on being the preeminent leader in first failure detection. Now, with the introduction of the IoT, there’s new information suggesting another path to preserve the most uptime.
