The basic problem stems from the fact that there are myriad methods and tools to measure vibration, and each of these may have different measurement units and confounding factors so the results may differ greatly.
By George Zusman, Fluke
The benefits of a vibration testing program are well known, but far too many plants choose to avoid vibration testing because of the perceived complexity. In a predictive maintenance program, both frequency spectrum analysis and overall vibration analysis should be used to identify machinery flaws early so that corrective action can be taken prior to machine failure.

The precise and accurate measurement of part features such as edges requires collimated light, careful placement of the part, a telecentric lens, calibration and perhaps optical distortion correction, and computation by the vision system’s computer.
