TRC-2019 Learning Session 37:11 minutes

By Jeff Hay, RDI Technologies and Judd Jones, Weyerhaeuser

Motion amplification (MA) is a video-processing technique that detects subtle motion and amplifies that motion to a level visible to the naked eye. Videos created through motion amplification enhance the understanding of the components and interrelationships creating the motion. Every pixel in the camera becomes a sensor, creating millions of data points in an instant, all in phase with one another. 

This is a co-presentation with Jeff Hay of RDI Technologies and Judd Jones of Weyerhaeuser. Judd Jones is a certified practitioner of MA with over 20+ years in industry and leverages motion amplification to perform predictive maintenance and solve machine health issues with a focus on machine improvements. He will highlight how MA is utilized in his day-to-day operations, as well as how he integrates the technology into their predictive maintenance strategies. This presentation will focus heavily on a series of case studies examining common motors and machinery at Weyerhaeuser facilities along with studies on assets such as chipheads and saws. We will examine how motion amplification lends itself to easily identify and diagnose issues common to motors, fans, pumps and other types of machinery.
