Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance provides customized online or periodic monitoring programs to accurately predict mechanical problems on rotating machines.

VSC uses the latest technology, computer analysis, and trending to identify specific faults before a breakdown, enabling the convenience of scheduled repairs. The program’s efficiencies streamline customer maintenance, offering up to a 10 to 1 return on investment.

VSC, the leader in predictive maintenance since 1918, can design a program that will help you maximize production and profits by significantly reducing machinery downtime and operational costs. All machinery produces vibration, whether it is benign or harmful. It is, therefore, necessary to distinguish between the two forms and, when entrusted in the hands of our experienced analysts, the distinction is clear and concise. Knowing how vibration can effect your machinery is an essentail step in avoid problems and stopping the quick-fix approach to maintenance. Furthermore, when used in conjunction with oil analysis, infrared thermography and ultrasonic testing, periodic monitoring programs identify existing problems and accurately forecast future ones. Our comprehensive reports include detailed analysis with simple recommendations for correcting problems before failure occurs.

When initiating a predictive maintenance program, immediate results reveal to the customer numerous equipment faults. While some of these faults are known and common, others are more long-term in nature and can cause issues in the future. As problems are resolved, the numbers of major faults wane, turning a customer’s maintenance program from reactive to proactive. A proactive maintenance program can help improve productivity, reduce downtime, and allow for easier scheduling of repairs. Equipment problems are prioritized and conveniently resolved around production and employee scheduling. Meanwhile, managers who use just-in-time inventory can order parts only for the immediate job. Over time, proactive maintenance creates reliable machinery requiring fewer personnel to maintain it.
