Using Machine Learning to identify operational modes in rotating equipment

Vibration monitoring is key to performing condition monitoring-based maintenance in rotating equipment such as engines, compressors, turbines, pumps, generators, blowers, and gearboxes. However, periodic route-based vibration monitoring programs are not enough to prevent breakdowns, as they normally offer a narrower view of the machines’ conditions. Adding Machine Learning algorithms to this process makes it scalable,


Times they are a-changin’ in predictive maintenance

Predictive maintenance, despite its measurable results and successes, has been suffering from lack of scalability. Models designed and trained for a given machine with a particular set of sensors often had to be retrained before being used with other similar machines. In addition, the quantity and variety of machines in a factory makes developing, training,
