A mechanic moves an electric motor to prepare it for vibration analysis.

When motors run consistently for long periods of time, electric motor vibration analysis becomes key to maintaining their health. Often operating parts at impressive speeds, motors move too quickly for us to notice where problems lie. By the time you hear or see an issue that has occurred, the discovery comes much too late before the problem has caused damage. Rather than taking a responsive approach to problems, it pays to have a team of professionals on your side to tackle problems before they arise.

Rocky Mount Electric Motor provides analysis for any operation in need. Whether you suspect your parts are sustaining internal or external wear, vibration analysis helps find where and why the problem is occurring.

How electric motor vibration analysis works

When checking motor vibration, we take measurements at horizontal (H), vertical (V), and axial (A) directions of each bearing. These measurements look at the minute changes in position that occur during operation. Although measuring in this way provides excellent information, the analyzer also requires specific equipment for the job. Since we at Rocky Mount Electric Motor work with electric motors on a daily basis, we carry all the latest techniques and technology to ensure your vibration analysis is always as accurate as possible.

Our team takes these measurements through motion amplification. This specialized technique looks at a motor during operation on a frame-by-frame, millisecond scale. By focusing on such a focused and slowed rate, we then see the vibration occurring within the motor and determine where the problem lies. Through this technique, we find the common causes of vibration.

Problems from vibration

  • Imbalance
  • Misalignment
  • Bearing Issues
  • Looseness of components
  • Structural Failure
  • Electrical issues
  • Resonance

Whatever problem you think your motor might face, our electric motor vibration analysis helps you stay ahead of any breakdown. Give Rocky Mount Electric Motor a call to schedule a consultation about your motor today!
