Fort Collins, CO, United States, 2014/04/01 - The new service is designed to help clients combat catastrophic failures of large rotating equipment through the routine utilization of precision balancing - Pioneer-Engineering.com.
Pioneer Engineering, one of the leading and premier providers of reliability engineering and vibration analysis services and training, announced the recent purchase of an IRD B50 balancing standing, allowing the engineering firm to now offer dynamic shop balancing services for their clients.
“Being a pioneer requires innovative thinking and approaches to the most common challenges. At Pioneer Engineering, we apply that attitude to every aspect of our business,” said Jessica Dieken, the director of marketing and sales for Pioneer Engineering. “The addition of dynamic shop balancing services to our already impressive menu of reliability and predictive maintenance engineering services truly solidifies our place as a one-stop-shop for vibration, reliability and training needs. Our focus has been and always will be on our clients what services can we offer clients to protect their facilities and improve productivity. It’s that simple.”
In today’s industrial environment, reliability of products and services is more important than ever. Meeting the growing demands of the global marketplace requires production and manufacturing facilities to push their equipment to the limits every day, putting strain and wear on components and machinery, threatening to shorten their lifecycle. Implementing preventative maintenance practices is critical in minimizing the possibility of catastrophic failures that lead to unscheduled downtime and loss of production. One of these practices is regular precision balancing of rotating equipment in order to preserve long bearing life.
Kasey McClain, one of Pioneer Engineering’s mechanical engineers, emphasizes the importance of maintaining balanced equipment, saying,“Balanced equipment improves the overall health of a system and helps extend the life of bearings, rotors, and other rotating equipment. Even slightly unbalanced rotating equipment creates unnecessary vibration and strain, which can negatively affect precision and accuracy leading to unscheduled downtime and even catastrophic breakdowns. This results in a loss of production and can require expensive emergency repairs. Proper maintenance practices, such as balancing, of large rotating equipment can save both time and money for a facility.”
Pioneer Engineering’s skilled technical staff uses a computer-controlled state-of-the-art IRD B50 balancing stand capable of precision balancing rotating equipment up to 5,000 pounds. All balancing services are guaranteed and are in accordance with ISO 1940/1 and applicable API standards.
In addition to the new shop balancing service, Pioneer Engineering also provides vibration analysis and reliability engineering training and services to clients around the world and is proud to be leading the industry in creating unique custom monitoring solutions. Being a leader requires innovation in thought and in practice, and at Pioneer Engineering, we are committed to both.
For more than a decade, Pioneer Engineering (pioner-engineering.com) has been a leader in providing vibration analysis and reliability engineering education and services to industries around the world.
