Machine condition monitoring, vibrations
The heart of predictive maintenance is a good vibration monitoring program. Combined with our other predictive tools, VibePro 8 provides an affordable alternative to the current offering of vibration tools on the market. Route data collection, onsite analysis and remote web-based vibration data analysis make this a powerful solution for any reliability maintenance program. VibePro 8 combines the simplicity of VibePro 7 with the flexibility of raw data collection and analysis.
Unbalance is a leading cause of damage to rotating equipment. The stress overtime caused by imbalance leads to early failure and unnecessary downtime. Common causes of imbalance include: looseness, thermal changes, tooling changes, maintenance repairs, bent shafts, bowed shafts, and product build-up (found commonly in blowers, compressors, and fans). Imbalance can also be an indicator of old equipment caused by corrosion or erosion of the bearings, rotors, or seals.
Misalignment is one of the top conditions that lead to machine failure. Misalignment occurs when the centre lines of two rotating shafts are not co-linear. Misalignment destroys bearings, seals, couplings, rotors, and shafts.
Misalignment of the driving and driven shaft in a machine adds stress forces to the shaft, which are transferred through the shaft to the bearings, seals, etc. These forces work against all of these components to reduce the productive life of the machine.
GTI AlignPro is a rugged, reliable and repeatable shaft alignment solution. Designed to operate on the iPad platform, this new offering from GTI Predictive Technology is the perfect addition to any VibePro or reliability maintenance program. GTI AlignPro offers an innovative, step-by-step, responsive interface with live moves, 3D-animations and wide touch screen which simplifies the alignment process and reduces the time it takes to complete each alignment.

- Resolution of 0.001° (≤18µm/M)(0.0002 in/Ft.)
- Accuracy: ± 0.001° at 0° to 2.000°; ± 0.003° at other angles
- Digital colour graphic display of dual angles
- Enable USB external power source
- VibroMeter display real-time vibration graph
- AngularMeter display real-time angle graph
- Basic PC Sync software USB connection (5 Meters) to a device for remote data display
- Professional PC Sync Software USB connection to a device for remote data logging (Optional)
- Wireless Bluetooth Class 1 connection (approx. 30 Meters) from PC to device (optional)
- Operating temperature at -10°C to +50°C
