Today's Labor Climate- An opportunity in disguise?

Ed Ballina Oct 11, 2023

It is no secret that today's labor climate is very challenging. From historically low unemployment rates, pent up demand for wage and benefit increases, to a greater cry for meaningful work, this is a new labor landscape for many of us. Couple that with greater mobility as well as low company loyalty and many businesses are left with yawning gaps in staffing…Read More.

Coupling Degradation/Wear

Couplings are a component used to attach individual shafts together for the purpose of power transmission. They allow for multiple components to operate as a system and provide a means to simplify the disassembly process to isolate or replace single components. They are often problematic due to the complexity of aligning multiple components and also because they are typically covered by a guard and often ignored. Read the rest of this article to learn more about what causes coupling wear. 

FAQ: What is the range of speed detection?

Once the rpm is below 300, the signal-to-noise ratio becomes weaker, but often we can still discern the vibration at the shaft turning speed down to 150 rpm. Below 150, the level of confidence to identify vibration directly related to the shaft is low, however, it may still be possible to identify the speed by measuring sidebands around higher carrier frequencies.
