LORD Corporation Announces New Portable Balancing Instrument and Vibration Analyzer

LORD Balance Check Designed with an intuitive user interface that makes it easy to use for beginners and experts alike, the LORD Balance Check can be used to detect unbalance, identify the correction capacity required to offset unbalance, and verify balance once it is restored. With its flexible instrument platform, the portable tool can be used in the field for machinery diagnostics, quality testing on production lines, vibration or FFT analysis, bump (rap) testing, and live signal recording. Such flexibility provides users with a single tool capable of providing effective maintenance, inspection and diagnostic solutions for a broad range of services.

The LORD Balance Check hardware is based on a high-performance handheld computer. The instrument uses a 400MHz XScale processor, large color display, easy operation function keys and has high-speed data acquisition capabilities through USB, IrDA & RS232. Designed with durability in mind, the rugged Balance

 

 

Condition Monitoring

Condition based maintenance is the best way to optimise machine availability and reduce production losses. SPM products utilise all three leading condition monitoring methods:

SPM, our patented Shock Pulse Method for monitoring ball and roller bearings. The easiest and most precise technique for measuring lubrication condition and bearing damage.
VIB, vibration severity monitoring based on ISO recommendations.

EVAM, our method for evaluated vibration analysis, including spectrum and machine fault symptom analysis plus machine-specific evaluation.
Very important for fast and economic condition assessment is the automatic evaluation of all condition data:
Green - yellow - red status indication on all measuring points!

monitoring the engineered world

MHCHolroyd Instruments Ltd draw upon AE experience stretching all the way back to 1974 when Trevor Holroyd (the founder of the company) started his research in this field in the prestigious Advanced Research Labs of Rolls Royce. Both fundamental research and development of Airline and Shop-Floor applications continued until in 1991 he left Rolls-Royce and set up Holroyd Instruments.

This background formed an excellent starting point from which to develop the unique AE sensor and AE signal processing upon which the MHC series of products are based. The first of these, the MHC - Machine Health Checker, was launched in 1993 and immediately carved out a reputation for being able to pick up machine faults even when other CM instruments failed.

The story of the MHC is one of initial scepticism that anything so simple could really work in the industrial environment. The phenomenon of the MHC is its ability to time and again cause such scepticism to evaporate as soon as it is seen in use detecting the presence of faults and localising their position.

Predictive Maintenance

Flir MontageThermal imaging has evolved into one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for Predictive Maintenance. By detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, thermography allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures occur.
Infrared cameras have become compact systems that look just like a normal video camera, are easy to use and generate a real-time high-resolution image. Numerous industries worldwide have discovered the advantage of incorporating infrared cameras in their Predictive Maintenance programs.
