Product Announcement from Mobius Institute
Mobius Institute, today announced the release of iLearnBalancing™, a computer-based training product that teaches maintenance professionals how to perform in-place dynamic balancing of industrial machines. iLearnBalancing is delivered by DVD or through the web via the iLearn-online Learning Portal and is run on your personal computer.
iLearnBalancing provides a complete understanding of the different types of unbalance including static, couple and dynamic unbalance and what is needed to correct them. It also presents ways to ensure that during the balance process, you are not chasing the wrong solution and how to make sure that the machine is truly out of balance and not another fault condition with similar symptoms.
iLearnBalancing is part of Mobius Institute's iLearnInteractive™ product line first introduced in 1999, and like all the iLearn products, it uses extensive 3D animations and simulators to make the subject more interesting and understandable. The interactive course is fully narrated, making it easier to learn. Simulators are used so you can experience the interaction between unbalance, rotational speed and phase, and how they affect the balance vectors.
"Until now, machine balancing has been as much an art as it has been a skill. iLearnBalancing demystifies machine balancing in an easily understandable format so that maintenance technicians learn everything they need to be successful," said Jason Tranter, founder and managing director, Mobius Institute. "A well balanced machine experiences less wear and has a longer life cycle, thus improving your plant's overall availability."
