New: Dutch course on bearing currents

Dutch course on bearing currents You may have heard about the relationship between bearing currents and electromagnetic interference, but you are still unsure of exactly how to deal with this. It’s confusing since this is a really complicated topic. This complexity has a variety of causes: it is not a straightforward physical phenomenon, and there […]

We like to move it move it!

We like to move it move it!  Understanding seemingly simple systems is key to get insight about complex machinery. Nowadays, digital technology helps us to create visualizations. At Orbits we truly believe that visualizing has many benefits: While animating, our own understanding increases. It gives us room for reasoning and discussing with colleagues. It’s a […]

That’s one small step for Orbits,…

That’s one small step for Orbits, one giant leap for your uptime! What do we do? We diagnose aberrant machine behavior on a system-level, assess its root cause and define the applicable proactive solution. What is the effort? On average, we solve our cases within 7 hours. This includes measuring, analyzing and reporting. Additionally, the […]

You are always one ride away from a good mood!

You are always one ride away from a good mood! Machinery Diagnostics on the bike? Or just having some fun with friends?Keeping our minds fresh and focussed can only be done with some healthy variety of exercise. That’s why last week, we have organized a cycling day together with our friends. Although we needed to […]

European Space Association or Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA)?

European Space Agency? No! Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA)  No, Orbits is not an aerospace company. We deal with what happens on this planet. How? By providing insights to our customers on their failing machinery. One of our techniques is Electrical Signature Analysis. By measuring voltage and currents we can: … fully analyze the power quality […]

Operational Deflection what???

Operational Deflection what??? Ever wondered why your machine frame is vibrating and causing damage while all the static calculations where performed meticulously? It may sound as food for specialists or academics, but mapping the behavior of this structure through ‘Operational Deflection Shape Analysis’ can help you out. During this training day, we will provide a […]

Vibrations, kill them on sight!

Vibrations, kill them on sight… Usually, we tend to minimize asset vibrations to reduce component fatigue following the applicable ISO standard. However, an increase of stationary vibrations actually results in a decrease of bearing forces when the acting force is located on the rotor. This is why we sometimes accept some asset positions to vibrate […]
