Machine conditioning monitoring - a new NI webcast series

16 November 2011

National Instruments (NI) UK & Ireland has announced a series of webcasts to provide tips and techniques specifically for engineers and scientists involved in condition monitoring and predictive maintenance systems. The three-part series of interactive webcasts will explore the latest condition monitoring techniques and provide expert advice on best practices and emerging trends.

As market pressure increases to drive down production costs in every industry, reducing operating and maintenance costs is increasingly important.  Conditioning monitoring programs actively monitor plant assets and properly schedule maintenance, helping to reduce unneeded repairs, or worse, unexpected machine failures. National Instruments provides a wide range of measurement and monitoring tools built on flexible, industry-proven platforms that can help engineers implement such a program.

Taking place on December 6, 7 an 8 2011, each Machine Condition Monitoring Webcast will be broadcast at 10am and 2pm, giving attendees the opportunity to directly interact with presenters and machine conditioning experts. The three webcasts are as follows: 
 
Why You Need a Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance System
Tuesday Dec 6, 10am and 2pm
Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance work together to offer benefits including increased revenue, increased production reliability, lower downtime and lower repair costs. This session draws on the experience and expertise of a multiyear veteran in the field of condition-based and predictive maintenance.

Measuring and Analysing Condition Monitoring Signals
Wednesday Dec 7, 10am and 2pm
Condition monitoring measurements often have unique requirements, from high bandwidth to built-in signal conditioning. National Instruments offers a flexible and cost-effective hardware and software platform for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. This webcast examines case studies from machine design and test, portable diagnostics for field use and online monitoring; each illustrating important criteria in the selection and use of condition monitoring hardware and software.

The Future of Condition Monitoring
Thursday Dec 8, 10am and 2pm
While the science and practice of condition monitoring is well understood, prediction technologies (or prognostics) remains a science under development. One research organisation has made breakthroughs in applying advanced mathematical techniques to create a prognostics software platform. The IMS Center has invested more than 10 years in research for prognostics techniques along with its industrial members. This session describes these techniques, industrial case studies where they are used and their future in the market place.
