Vibration sensors improve machine reliability, so you can optimize quality control and maximize production

Quality control is vital in pharmaceutical production. Plant maintenance and reliability engineers never lose sight of it, and understand the critical role of machine operations and process control to keep pharmaceutical operations running efficiently.

Data from Wilcoxon Research® sensors helps maintenance experts detect faults, prevent damage, extend equipment life, and provide early warnings to avoid failure. 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 pharmaceutical machinery and equipment health
