Operational Deflection Shape measurements (ODS)

An ODS measurement shows how your system vibrates at a certain frequency. We do this by measuring the vibrations at crucial points in three orthogonal directions. With these points, we create a three-dimensional animation of the movement of your machine or structure. Based on this, we can then implement targeted interventions of the structure or the foundations to reduce the vibration level.

ODS measurements are suited to all of the following problems:

  • Structural problems
  • Support issues
  • Looseness
  • Imbalance
  • Dynamic misalignment
  • Bending shapes
  • Welding cracks
