Motion Amplification- Growing Uses with Maintenance & Reliability for a Rapidly Evolving Technology

IMC Presentation (43:16)

Jeff Hay, RDI Technologies

Motion amplification is a rapidly evolving technology that is being utilized more and more within the condition monitoring and maintenance industry. With this rapid evolution comes new capabilities and use cases. In this presentation, Dr. Jeff Hay, the inventor of motion amplification, will cover new advances in the technology, like the ability to visualize and measure thermal growth, the ability to visualize phase across the entire video in a single image, and new advanced techniques to measure shaft dynamics while undergoing rotation.

A series of case studies will be presented on motion amplification highlighting new advancements in the technology and how it has been utilized to solve real problems along with the strategies used to deploy motion amplification as a new tool in the reliability toolbox. Motion amplification is a proprietary video processing technique that detects subtle displacement and then converts that movement to a level visible with the naked eye, enabling visualization of the movement. Now you can remotely see the actual faults with motion amplification software and solve the problems. Seeing how the machine is moving allows the source of most issues to become clear. That loose bolt is visible. The cracked foundation is obvious. You can see if the motor and pump are bouncing up and down together (in phase) or as if they were on opposite ends of a teeter-totter (out of phase).
