The primary use for a stroboscope is to stop motion for diagnostic inspectionpurposes. However, the stroboscope can be used to measure speed. In order todo this, several factors need to be considered. First, the object being measuredshould be visible for all 360° of rotation (e.g. The end of a shaft). Second, theobject should have some...

Maintenance & Operations KPIs such as MTBF, MTTR and OEE are good measures of Asset Performance and Maintenance Efficiency. But rarely do we see organisations with a good handle on the key drivers of effective and efficient lubrication. Poor lubrication accounts for >60% of bearing failuresGlobal lubricant waste costs industry >$40m per yearModern lubricants can...

Automatic Lubrication Systems / Centralised Lubrication Systems are designed to apply lubricant in precise, metered amounts over short, frequent time intervals. Labour constraints and/or the physical location of lubricating points on a machine can make it difficult to manually lubricate the points. This, combined with the convenience and confidence of automated systems, makes such systems...

Looking at the results of all the site lubrication audits we completed in recent years, we can conclude that they are clearly not as obvious or easy to achieve as we may hope! The core problems were around lack of ownership and know-how, exaggerated by insufficient lubrication management information/tools to do the job. Top 5...
