Vibration Diagnostics

SimuTech’s test engineers has the knowledge, experience, and equipment to quickly resolve difficult vibration problems in a wide variety of applications. In over 30 years of service, SimuTech’s engineers have fixed a broad range of vibration related problems such as fatigue failures, excessive noise, resonance, manufacturing process quality issues, structural vibration, abnormal wear, foundation and floor vibration for industries including aerospace, automotive, military, electric power generation, research and development, tool and die, nuclear, petrochemical, air conditioning, and refrigeration.

Specific applications include steam turbines, gas turbines, pumps, blowers, compressors (Turbomachinery), bearings, foundations, buildings, optics, piping, and many more types of machinery and structures.

Recent vibration diagnostics applications include failure investigation of a material separation machine, heavy equipment cab noise reduction, and floor vibration survey for sensitive equipment.

Expertise in advanced vibration measurement and analysis techniques including modal testing (rap testing or bump testing), operating deflection shape (ODS) analysis, strain gage measurements, spectrum (signature) analysis, order tracking, joint time frequency (waterfall) analysis, demodulation, and finite element analysis (FEA) and state of the art equipment enables SimuTech to diagnose the root cause of noise and vibration problems. Based on a clear understanding of the problem SimuTech provides practical solutions such as specification of isolation systems, tuned mass dampers, surface damping treatments, shaft balance and alignment procedures, excitation source control, repair procedures, natural frequency detuning, and active vibration control. SimuTech’s vibration troubleshooting and diagnostic service offers state-of-the-art techniques at reasonable prices with a strong commitment to customer service.
