Predictive maintenance

The assessment of the energy distribution can be used as a powerful and efficient tool for the predictive maintenance. The database of calculated and / or recorded precision vibration patterns of intact structure or machine as well as signatures of known defects based on three- dimensioanl energy distribution is used to identify changes in each part performance or risk of defects within the structure. The trends of energy distribution changes would indicate how quickly the defect occurs and when the maintenance is required.
