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

In demanding machining operations, the role of vibration analysis is critical. If important machine tools fail, manufacturing operations can shut down and revenue is lost. Our sensors help to avoid unexpected downtime. Maintenance and monitoring of cutting tools, CNC machines and milling play a vital role in efficient machining operations.

For decades, maintenance and plant engineers have used Wilcoxon Research® vibration monitoring sensors to more accurately determine tool life and keep operations productive. Wilcoxon Research products have set the industry standard since 1960.
We supply sensors for all types of rotating machines. We are your one stop shop!

Vibration analysis – key predictor of machine health

  • Preventative maintenance:
    maintain uptime, schedule repairs cost-effectively, identify faults early, prevent unexpected failure of tools/machines
  • Condition based monitoring:
    analyze and sustain machine life, avoid expensive damage, keep operations running at peak performance

Typical vibration monitoring solutions for machine tool applications include

  • Compressors
  • CNC
  • Cutting tools
  • Gearboxes
  • Motors
  • Milling
  • Pumps
