PDS GmbH invites LIGNA guests to visit them in Hall 15, Stand D21, during the five-day event at the Hannover Exhibition Center. PDS' spindle engineering and repair experts will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate two new PDS services vital to maintaining a preventive spindle maintenance program: the VibeAidSM vibration analysis service and the Spindle Health Monitoring System.

PDS' VibeAidSM vibration analysis service provides real-time performance data that helps predict and prevent spindle failure by detecting vibrations that indicate problems that may lead to unexpected breakdowns or premature spindle failure. With the protection of VibeAidSM, PDS technicians will travel onsite to perform expert vibration analysis and troubleshooting on spindles. This onsite evaluation provides a comprehensive baseline report for spindle functionality. Periodic return preventative maintenance visits reveal spindles at-risk or impending breakdowns. Using onsite diagnostic tools and remote technologies, PDS spindle health monitoring services provide further real-time discovery for predictive repair management.

PDS' spindle experts will also demonstrate how to supplement the protection of its VibeAidSM vibration analysis service with its PrecisionCareSM extended warranty program. PrecisionCareSM provides an unprecedented two-year warranty on spindle repairs, complete with an additional Spindle Health Monitoring System. This system continuously monitors a machine for problematic vibrations and is far more effective than periodic maintenance in predicting and preventing untimely breakdowns and costly downtime.
