2014 Vibration Institute Training Conference


2014 Annual Training Conference
June 11-13, 2014
The Historic Menger Hotel                     
San Antonio, TX

The Vibration Institute will conduct the 2014 Annual Training Conference in San Antonio, TX on June 11-1    3    , 2014 at The Historic Menger Hotel. San Antonio is second only to Houston as Texas's most populated city, and is big in every way. From the Missions to the Hill Country, San Antonio offers many things that range from major theme parks to the River Walk lined with restaurants, patios, galleries and shops – it is a city filled with culturally significant arts, history, museums and architecture.

The 2014 Annual Training Conference will provide attendees with training and education in practical vibration te ch      nology and networking opportunities – it is THE place for the vibration community to meet annually.

The 2014 Training Conference emphasizes the use of basic, intermediate and advanced techniques to achieve an outstanding predictive maintenance program. Identification, analysis, and correction techniques including balancing and alignment are just some of the topics that will be presented. Techniques used in vibration analysis, basic rotor dynamics, operating deflection shapes, time waveform analysis, machine isolation, and machine monitoring are stressed.
