Visualise beyond the naked eye’s capability with Motion Amplification®.
Motion Amplification® is a video-processing solution that brings extremely subtle movement to life. Used to visualise vibration, misalignment, looseness and deflection shapes beyond the naked eye’s capability, it is the video solution that allows technicians, engineers and asset owners to view vibration in an MP4 video format.
Motion Amplification® captures movement using RDI’s Iris M™, and can be conducted on an array of assets, including:
- Rotating machinery and components
- Tubing, piping and process lines
- Mechanical seals
- Vessels and tanks
- Structural components and assemblies
Motion Amplification® has proven a critical tool for visualising and communicating vibration concerns. It assists technicians, engineers and clients with analysing the root cause of a problem with applications beyond the visualisation capabilities of traditional vibration analysis techniques.
Motion Amplification® has applications detecting issues such as structural cracking, operational deflection shapes, relative movement between machinery components, and in the assessment of assets not accessible for contact vibration measurements.
Advantages of Motion Amplification®
By visually capturing an asset’s subtle movements, Motion Amplification® assists in efficiently identifying and solving a wide variety of concerns, and analysing the root cause of a problem.
The advantages of Motion Amplification® include:
- The visualisation of subtle movement beyond the naked eye’s capability.
- Efficient measurement and analysis of multiple points of interest.
- The results are provided to clients in video reports, providing a digestible, visual representation of identified concerns.
The ALS Approach
With the powerful ability to diagnose an asset’s subtle movement or vibration, ALS continues to implement Motion Amplification® as both a stand-alone inspection technique, as well as in conjunction with other vibration and condition monitoring techniques. ALS aligns leading Motion Amplification® technology with qualified and experienced technicians and engineers.
