Condition monitoring services

22 March, 2017

Precision bearing manufacturer Schaeffler UK has extended its range of condition monitoring (CM) services for the UK market. With its combination of knowhow in bearing failure analysis, vibration monitoring, fitting and maintenance of bearings, and its own portfolio of condition monitoring equipment, Schaeffler UK is ideally positioned to offer CM services to a wide range of industry sectors; including rail, wind energy, paper, steel, food, mining and quarrying and pharmaceuticals.


The range of services now offered by Schaeffler UK include condition monitoring using both online and patrol monitoring, vibration analysis, thermal imaging, bearing failure analysis, bearing mounting and dismounting, training and consultancy. The aim of these services is to help plant operators (MRO) and plant manufacturers (OEM) to reduce the operating costs associated with rolling bearings, increase plant availability and reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

External help

Although most companies have an in-house maintenance department responsible for the condition monitoring of plant and equipment, many require external help from an expert when it comes to analysing vibration data obtained from CM equipment, particularly for process-critical plant and machines.

David Goves, application engineer at Schaeffler UK, said: “Our condition monitoring service is a unique offering to UK industry, combining the specialist knowledge, skills and experience of our engineers. As a manufacturer of bearings ourselves, we have the specialist bearing knowledge, condition monitoring products and vibration analysis skills to help customers get the most from their rotating equipment. We typically work closely with the customer’s maintenance or plant engineers, assisting in their predictive maintenance regimes and helping to reduce production downtime and increasing plant availability.”
