We provide specialized engineering services, consulting, and products to support critical machinery in various industries. Our engineers have a long history using data acquisition systems to record force, fatigue, and harmonic frequency content within components and structures during operation. Our engineers have 55+ years of combined expertise in machinery inspections, weld inspections, non-destructive testing, instrumentation & measurement, failure investigations & analysis (theoretical and actual), 3D modelling, mechanical design, FEA, CFD, and live testing including: roller load, center of gravity, rail spall, suspended load, whole body vibration, local and global weld and structural fatigue, and structural/cable pendant harmonic frequency. We provide monitoring products to continuously track structural health, production, fatigue damage, and positioning metrics on machinery.
MachineLife frequently provides machinery inspection and testing services to help with long term outage planning and component replacement, identify critical areas for targeted inspections, provide guidance and planning on repairs, and provide independent structural inspection services to meet maintenance and insurance requirements. MachineLife provides preliminary documentation before hardware installs, will personally install, or provide training for site personnel to install hardware, will provide documentation of hardware and network architecture, support network configurations, database architecture, data reporting, and data interpretation when needed.
Over the past 25 years, MachineLife personnel have developed and installed over one hundred structural stress, fatigue, damage, and condition monitoring systems for various machinery types across the United States. We have extensive experience working with port cranes, dragline excavator cranes, dredges, rope shovel excavators, dam gates, mobile drills, loaders, and conveyance equipment MachineLife personnel are extensively safety trained. Our employees include a registered Professional Engineer in multiple states including Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, and Wyoming, and first aid and CPR certifications.
