Vibration Analysis Demonstrator, 203E Photo #1

This versatile, precision-machined device, expands upon the capabilities of our #203 Vibration Analysis Demonstrator, creating more in-depth opportunities for demonstration of the causes and effects of vibration in industrial rotating machinery.

The device allows for isolation of individual, vibration causing variables in order to identify their individual signatures. A permanent magnet DC motor with RPM pick-up and display is included. A system of indexing pins and CNC-machined pillow blocks allows for convenient and accurate reconfiguration, while maintaining alignment.

This expanded device includes a jack-shaft allowing for study of belt drives and gear drives. Additionally, a right angle gear box, magnetic brake, and connecting arm/linear slide mechanism is provided, expanding the device's usefulness.

This product, and its associated course/exercise guide, allows for in-depth training in vibration cause/effect, balancing and data collection, with training programs and within the research environment.
