Pre & Post Conference Training

*These were the training sessions for the 2021 Leading Reliability Conference. We will update this for our 2022 Leading Reliability Conference accordingly as we get more information.

The Leading Reliability Conference team knows that training and conference dollars are not always easy to come by. With that in mind we’re designing this conference to provide the most training and educational value for your time and investment. Below you’ll find all the pre and post conference training opportunities that are included in your conference registration fee.

RDI Technologies Advanced Training 2 Day Workshop
This workshop will take place on Monday & Tuesday from 8:30 AM-5 PM.

What You’ll Learn
During the Basic Iris M™ Certification Training, you learned the basics of how to acquire Motion Amplification® data and how to use the Motion Amplification® Application to analyze data and create videos. You’ve had some time to use the system on your own and now you’re ready to take your skills to the next level.

RDI’s Advanced Motion Amplification® Training helps students cross the gap between knowing simply how to use the basic components of the system, to actually solving problems related to structures, rotating machinery, and piping.

Learn Advanced Motion Amplification® analysis techniques to help make you a more successful Motion Amplification® Analyst. Over two days our experienced instructors will cover the following:

Identifying Common Machinery Faults with Motion Amplification®
Advanced Signal Processing
Advanced Data Collection
Resonance Testing
Piping and Pipe Support Analysis
Rotating Component Inspection
High-Density Recording
Using Motion Studio™ for Professional Results
Anti-Aliasing Techniques
Transient Analysis
Presentation of Motion Amplification® Case Histories

Receive Professional Advice
Are you currently dealing with a mechanical or structural issue? Bring your own data to share with the class and our experienced instructors will offer professional insight about possible problems and solutions.

Advanced Motion Amplification® Training Requirements
Students must have already taken the Basic Motion Amplification® Certification Course and passed the Level I Motion Amplification® Certification test.
Students should bring their own acquisition unit with at least 50 GB of free storage space to the class.
Although it is not a technical prerequisite for taking the class, it is highly recommended that students be Category I certified in vibration analysis before attending.

UE Systems Software Training Half Day Workshop 
This workshop will take place Tuesday from 8:30 AM-Noon

Learn how to use all the features of the Data Management System (DMS) such as how to create application centered reports, SQL reports, custom reports, how to imbed images in the reports as well as how to attach images to records and other data fields, the logistics of setting a route, creating trend charts, setting alarm levels, using the database manager, configuring lists, setting preferences, uploading and downloading routes, and much more…

Motion Amplification® Workshop: How to Use the Latest Key Features
This workshop will take place Tuesday from 8:30 AM-Noon

Motion Amplification® was just the start. This half-day workshop will discuss and demonstrate some of the latest developments beyond Motion Amplification®. These advancements include the Color Camera, Tachometer Shaft Freeze, Long Term Acquisition (measure slow movement like thermal growth or shrinkage), Live Motion Amplification®, Continuous Monitoring of your critical or “bad-actor” assets, and many more. Attendees will get ideas on how this technology can be applied to many more applications within their facilities.

UE Systems Half Day Workshop: Optimizing Rolling Element Bearing Lubrication with Ultrasound and IIoT

According to a leading bearing manufacturer, over 50% of rolling-element bearing failures can be attributed to improper lubrication. This includes using incorrect lubricant as well as under and over lubricating the bearings. This workshop is broken out into two sections – in section 1, we will review the fundamentals of how to select the right oil or grease for element bearings, how to properly pre-pack and re-lubricate greased bearings, and how to determine the right quantity and frequency when regreasing. With the foundational knowledge now set, section 2 of this workshop will focus on optimizing lubrication programs by moving from traditional time-based lubrication towards condition-based lubrication practices. Additionally, with the help of a bearing testing unit, we will perform a live demonstration on how ultrasound technology can be used to accurately monitor friction in a bearing. We will also use a manual grease gun and the power of IIoT to show how you can restore bearing friction and optimize your lubrication process moving forward. The condition-based lubrication system will only lubricate the bearing when it is required and will precisely dispense the exact amount of grease needed. When we properly utilize the power of ultrasound, we can efficiently prevent lubrication failures due to improper lubrication practices from happening in the first place.
