Vibration Monitoring and Investigation of Impact Press – Glasgow

Client – Higher Education

Vibration monitoring undertaken at 4 sensitive locations within a research centre workshop.  The measurements were undertaken to assess magnitude of impact from a new 21,000 kN press installed in the workshop.  The vibration assessment addressed the following points:

  • Vibration propagation from press impact;
  • Vibration levels at sensitive equipment within workshop;
  • Potential effect of vibration levels on employees; and
  • Vibration dampening / mitigation recommendation.

The investigation of vibration in the workshop showed significant vibration transmitted through the floor. Vibration mitigation measures were advised to minimise the level of vibration experienced in other areas of the workshop.
