IMVAC Europe Keynote "The Future of Vibration Monitoring and Analysis – Will Computers Take Your Job?"

IMVAC keynote speaker Jason Tranter presents "The Future of Vibration Monitoring and Analysis – Will Computers Take Your Job?" This keynote examines a new age of intelligent, low-cost, wireless vibration monitoring (and the Industrial Internet of Things/IIoT) plus cloud-based software systems that utilize machine learning to detect and diagnose fault conditions. So, what does that mean for operators of industrial plants, vibration monitoring companies, service providers and vibration analysts across the world? Will the plant operators reach new levels of plant output and reduced costs? Will many of the traditional vibration companies go away? Will vibration analysts be replaced by computer systems? Or is it all hype? In this keynote presentation, Mr. Jason Tranter, founder and CEO of Mobius Institute, will attempt to answer these questions and explain what the current approaches are to the automated measurement and analysis of vibration and other process/condition data.

About Jason Tranter

Mr. Jason Tranter has been involved with condition monitoring and vibration analysis since 1984. In 1986 he formed product development company, ARGO, which was heavily involved in vibration monitoring and systems development. In 1990 he sold that company to DLI Engineering in Seattle (now AzimaDLI) where he directed product development, and later in charge of the entire DLI vibration product line. By 1999, he had returned to Australia and formed Mobius Institute, a vibration analysis training company. Today, Mobius Institute is the largest vibration analysis training company worldwide, provides comprehensive plant-wide reliability improvement training, and is the parent company of the global IMVAC conferences.
