FAG Industrial Services is offering customers a torque measurement capability, a service for estimating the remaining service life of drive components and for monitoring and optimizing production processes. While vibration measurement monitors individual parts only, torque measurement can monitor complete drive components. It can be performed in rough conditions, such as the rolling processes used in steel and aluminium production, either sporadically or constantly. The device can be integrated into existing drive trains without affecting the drive elements’ mechanical properties. The combination of vibration measurement and torque measurement provides maintenance personnel with detailed information on their plant’s condition. FAG Industrial Services
