UniVibe: A Novel User-Friendly Software for Automated Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics of Geared Transmission
Nowadays, huge emphasis is given to research on diagnostic tools in order to prevent and monitor the health status of gears and bearings. However, the link between advanced signal processing techniques and ease of use is still missing in commercial software tools. Actually, softwares that implement advanced signal processing techniques leak in ease user interaction and automated diagnostic procedures. Authors have developed a commercial software tool, called UniVibe, that attempts to fill the gap between high sensitivity in the diagnostics of faults in complex geared transmission and user-friendly interface. This work focuses on the description of the UniVibe core, highlighting its diagnostic capabilities on the basis of a real industrial case. Specifically, the automated procedure that shepherds the user to the successfully fault diagnosis of a complex geared transmission is pointed out.
