FAG Industrial Services is offering customers torque measurement capability that monitors complete drive components. Measurements can be performed in rough ambient conditions and integrated into existing drive trains without affecting the drive elements. The measurements can be performed either sporadically or constantly, depending on the customer’s needs.
According to the company’s press release, the combination of torque and vibration measurement provides maintenance personnel with detailed information on the plant’s condition. This helps to optimize drive components and estimate reliability.
“Torque monitoring always makes sense in applications where drive elements must be protected from overstressing or where the right torque is important for the production process,” says Dr. Christian Schaaf, head of torque and design improvement department at FAG Industrial Services. “Almost all industries can benefit from this service.”
