Most of us are still familiar with the variety of Fluke meters we grew up with. The company made a few acquisitions and developed the Fluke Reliability business unit. They do some cool stuff. Here is the latest news from them in the maintenance and reliability front.
- Fluke Reliability has launched the VibXpert 3 Balancer, a next-generation smart field balancing tool that can diagnose and correct rotational unbalance in the field or on the floor.
- The VibXpert 3 Balancer is equipped with six synchronous channels, making it one of the fastest and most accurate solutions available, and its user-friendly interface makes it accessible to technicians of all skill levels.
- The VibXpert 3 Balancer enhances productivity, increases uptime, and reduces maintenance costs, which is especially important in today’s challenging business environment/skills shortage.
This state-of-the-art device can diagnose and correct rotational unbalance in the field or on the floor, solving a leading cause of failure in rotating assets like fans, pumps, and motor-driven tools.
Unlike the current generation tools on the market, the VibXpert 3 Balancer is equipped with six synchronous channels, so it can record multi-channel vibration measurements simultaneously. This lets users quickly take measurements from multiple angles, compare them to historical data, and identify the root cause of the unbalance directly at the source. As a result, it’s one of the fastest and most accurate solutions available.
Detecting unbalance issues early prevents them from developing into costly, hazardous problems. The result is increased uptime, improved productivity and reduced maintenance costs. The interactive interface functions like a tablet, making it accessible to today’s workforce. Its robust and durable design withstands extreme temperatures, moisture, and dust, making it suitable for fieldwork.
