Monitor machine tool spindles to prevent out-of-specification production

Overview:

Recognizing that producing out-of-tolerance production is worse than an unplanned outage, an engine component plant is piloting vibration-based condition-monitoring systems on machine tool spindles.

Recognizing that producing out-of-tolerance production is worse than an unplanned outage, an engine component plant is piloting vibration-based condition-monitoring systems on machine tool spindles. The pilot is intended to determine how far in advance bearing damage can be detected, reduce stoppages due to bearing or other machine-induced failure (i.e. unbalance, misalignment, resonance), compare predictive to time-based and run-to-failure strategies, and increase knowledge about design and implementation of spindle-monitoring systems.
