Vibration Sensors: Demand for Condition Monitoring Drives Growth

Vibration Sensor Classifications

The measurement of vibration is the most common method for assessing the electromechanical status of machinery for condition monitoring purposes.  The most common industrial applications of vibration sensors include pumps, motors, fans, compressors, gearboxes, gas turbines, bearings on conveyor systems, wind turbine gearboxes, wind turbine generators, dryer sections (pulp & paper), ovens & kilns (mineral processing), and hot rolling mills (metalworking).

Condition monitoring is the process of monitoring a parameter of the condition in machinery (vibration, temperature, etc.), in order to identify a significant change that is indicative of a developing fault.  Condition monitoring has a unique benefit, wherein conditions that would shorten the normal life span of a machine can be addressed before it develops into a major failure.  Condition monitoring techniques are normally used on rotating equipment, auxiliary systems and other machinery (compressors, pumps, electric motors, internal combustion engines, presses, etc.), while periodic inspection using non-destructive testing techniques and fit for service (FFS) evaluation are used for static plant equipment such as steam boilers, piping, and heat exchangers.

Both manufacturers and suppliers are experiencing a digital transformation.  Emerging technologies and practices are disrupting the status quo.  Whether it is called industrial IoT, smart manufacturing, or Industry 4.0, there is clearly a significant shift underway.  Driven by the need to reduce operating costs, minimize unscheduled downtime, and improve asset performance, information-driven, highly efficient competitors with innovative business models will enjoy a competitive advantage in the marketplace.  Sensors are at the heart of this transformation.

Vibration Sensors Strategic Issues

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Vibration Sensors Market Research Report provides detailed quantitative, current market data and addresses key strategic issues including the following:

Vibration Sensors Market Forecast

Seek Sensors with Advanced Solutions Capabilities

Today, many users want more than what the traditional sensor provides.  Users want centralized data storage with contextualized global data accessibility for all levels of their organizations to enable the highest collaboration and effectiveness.  There are changes in the way the leading users are deploying sensors, smart connections through IO-Link or digitally to improve and distribute real-time data to all levels of the manufacturing organization through workflow and other complementary technologies.

Focus on Business Outcomes

Savvy customers recognize that the Industrial IoT should be pursued not just for technology’s sake but also to achieve concrete business outcomes.  Early industrial implementations tend to emphasize maximizing performance outcomes in areas such as reduced machine downtime, incremental performance improvements, and cost savings for service operations.  Industrial IoT solutions enable these outcomes through applications such as analytics and ML-based predictive maintenance capabilities, although the spectrum of targeted activity continues to broaden.

Strategic focus on connecting operations, end products, and/or service capabilities should determine the best solution for delivering the desired outcome.  Do you require a solution for your own internal production operations, and/or for the end products you manufacture and service?  Evaluate potential solutions on the basis of these desired outcomes and applications since the offerings available vary as to how well they service each possibility.  Take advantage of the emphasis on application-specific solutions targeted at specific use cases to evaluate and then scale the combination that works best for you.

Identify the Right Supplier

Although advances have been made in the field of vibration monitoring and analysis equipment, the selection of sensors and the way they are installed on a machine remain critical factors in determining the success of any condition monitoring system.  Investments made for installing superior sensors are a prudent investment since the information provided about the machine of interest is accurate and reliable.  Poor quality sensors and inadequate installation can easily give misleading data or, in some cases, cause a critical machine condition to be completely overlooked.

A typical sensor is designed to transmit critical operating information of the machine for the safety of both the machine and the personnel operating the machine.  Machine operating parameters such as temperatures (low to high), magnetic fields, vibration range, frequency range, electromagnetic compatibility and electrostatic discharge conditions, and the required signal quality demand the need for a variety of sensors.  The measurement of vibration and selection of proper sensor are critical for industrial companies.  Industrial companies need to identify the right vibration sensor supplier for better performance of the machine.
