Metals processing

Vibration sensors improve machine reliability, so you can enhance safety and optimize productivity

Plant machinery often operates in wet, dirty and dusty conditions and can be exposed to flammable or explosive hazards. Condition-based monitoring helps to maintain equipment and prevent damage. Maintenance and reliability professionals know that if machines fail, the circumstances could be dire. That's why maintenance of process control machines and equipment reliability play a vital role in safe and efficient metals processing operations.

For decades, plant engineers have used Wilcoxon Research® vibration monitoring sensors to detect faults, identify wear, prevent damage and avoid costly repairs to critical metal processing production machinery. 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!
