Course Purpose:This course is designed for the new user of vibration analysis or predictive maintenance instrumentation or for the individual that desires to become more familiar with the basics of vibration. The relationship between the mechanical condition of machinery and vibration is presented. This background helps show how vibration detection and analysis can be used in a cost effective program to identify machinery problems and schedule repairs to avoid costly machine downtime.
Who Should Attend GLX?Maintenance supervisors, mechanics, technicians, engineers or analysts involved in the maintenance or operation of plant machinery should attend this course. This course also covers the prerequisite knowledge needed to attend and be successful in the Vibration Analysis 1 course (Course No. EK-ICM201).
Technology RequirementsAll technology is provided for student use in the classroom by Rockwell Automation. It is not necessary for students to bring any technology with them when attending this course.
Student MaterialsTo enhance and facilitate each student's learning experience, the following materials are provided as part of the course package:Student Manual, which contains the key concepts, definitions, and examples presented in the course, including:
Hands-On PracticeHands-on practice is a necessary part of learning and this course offers hands-on opportunities for fundamental vibration measurements. New users of vibration analysis or predictive maintenance systems will realize significant benefits from the practical hands-on measurement exercises using modern data collectors, or analyzers. Students will gain practical experience by making example measurements using the different units of measure and frequency ranges. A balancing exercise completes the program and allows the students to use the concepts provided in the course to achieve a balance solution.
Next Learning Level Once students have mastered the fundamental skills covered in this course, they will have the knowledge and skills necessary to attend the next level of Integrated Condition Monitoring technology or product training. In particular, this course will benefit those students enrolling in the Vibration Analysis Level: 1 course (Course No. EK-ICM201).
Course Length This is a three-day course.
Class begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Times are approximate. Due to COVID-19, the classes may be held at an offsite location near the branch listed on the schedule. Exact times and the location of the class will be sent in your confirmation email from Rockwell Automation.
