Motion Amplification

By utilizing RDI Technologies IRIS M™ our Technicians can perform Motion Amplification1 and quickly analyze deflection, displacement, movement and vibration that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye.

Using a video camera and RDI software and processing algorithms we can more accurately measure the vibration or movement in equipment.

“Motion Amplification™ is a proprietary video processing algorithm that detects subtle movement then increases that movement to a level visible to the naked eye which enhances the understanding of the components and interrelationships creating the motion.” – RDI Technologies

Motion Amplification Capabilities:

  • Motion Amplification lets you see movement that is not visible to the naked eye
  • Reduce equipment down time and maintenance costs by predicting equipment failures
  • Graph overall equipment health over time
  • Identify misalignment, out of balance, mechanical looseness, rolling element failure

Motion Amplification benefits:-

  • Cavitation, hydraulic and aerodynamic forces
  • Drive transmission faults for belts, chains, couplings and drive shafts
  • Duct and vessel wall deflections
  • Excessive transient loading
  • Ineffective damping
  • Misalignment
  • Oscillating motion analysis
  • Piping vibration
  • Reciprocating engine and compressor motion
  • Resonance
  • Soft foot
  • Structural cracks
  • Structural looseness
  • Structural stiffness and support
  • Torsional twisting, bending and flexing
  • Unbalance
  • Vibrating screen motion analysis
