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

Worker safety and efficient operations depend on well-maintained machines and equipment. Environments are hazardous. Conditions are dangerous. Detection of problems on expensive machinery is a top priority. Maintenance and plant engineers rely on vibration analysis and diagnostics to analyze trends, detect problems, identify wear, prevent damage, and avoid costly repairs.

For decades, Wilcoxon Research® vibration monitoring sensors have detected faults and kept mining equipment running safely and efficiently around the world. 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!
