Vibration sensors improve machine reliability, so you can maximize production and minimize downtime

Food and beverage manufacturing is a highly automated process, that’s why keeping machines in top operating condition is a key objective for plant maintenance and reliability engineers. Early identification of component wear and mechanical problems keeps machines running and maximizes production.

Vibration analysis is an important part of machinery health monitoring within an effective preventative and condition based maintenance program. For decades, Wilcoxon Research® vibration monitoring sensors have been used around the world by maintenance experts to detect machinery problems, avoid failure and improve line equipment effectiveness.

Wilcoxon Research products have set the industry standard since 1960. We supply sensors for all types of rotating machines.
