Spindle Health Monitoring

The Spindle Health Monitoring System is used to expand and enhance spindle diagnostics according to vibration and temperature analysis. The miniaturized system can be affordably installed directly or retrofitted within your spindle ensuring real-time monitoring, as well as reducing the machine downtimes by predicting malfunctions.

Our Spindle Health Monitoring System provides monitoring of machine spindles at scale for emerging symptoms of bearing and temperature anomalies.

See Spindle Health Monitoring System Benefits

A spindle monitoring system can be added to spindles at your location or ours. For additional protection, invest in a PrecisionCareSM 24-month spindle repair warranty and protection plan, available with the purchase of a PDS spindle monitoring system.

Visualize real-time monitoring of all machines.

Tailor to specific machines.

Maintain the spindle in optimum health utilizing the continuous spindle life monitoring algorithm which is computed by using real-time vibration and temperature values.

Fast digital output (<1ms) for connection to the machine emergency stop.

Review events to look at spindle history, all alarms and warnings, check-up, power on, shutdowns and modifications to the device parameters.

Maximize Uptime with PDS’ Predictive Maintenance

Compact. Integrated.

The hybrid MEMS technology 3D piezoelectric guarantees complete signal analysis on a wide band. The presence of a microprocessor with integrated memory allows local detection and storage of collision phenomena, imbalance, overloads, anomalies of the working cycle, tool wear and bearings diagnostics.
