The IMVAC Europe event is one of four IMVAC conferences being held worldwide.

IMVAC Europe offered a variety of learning opportunities that ranged from basic to advanced vibration analysis and condition monitoring topics including four streams of workshops, presentations, and hands-on sessions delivered by experts in the community. More than 170 industry professionals attended the three-day event, which also featured 13 leading exhibiting companies representing multiple condition monitoring technologies, such as; Vibration, Ultrasound, Motor Testing, Alignment/Balancing, Infrared, and Lubrication. The event also hosted four keynote presentations; Herman Baets presented “Challenges for Maintenance in a Changing World”, Dr. Joris Van Ostaeyen presented “Successfully Applying Predictive Analytics for Data-Driven Maintenance”, Dean Whittle presented “Fault Detection, Root Cause Analysis and Documenting your Vibration Analysis program”, and Jason Tranter presented “Making Vibration Analysis Count”.

“The IMVAC 2017 in Antwerp was excellent. I learned a lot and got to know many interesting people from all sides of the business. Attending the conference was an overall success for me”, said Jonas Albers, Lenord, Bauer & Co. GmbH.

“Condition Monitoring is foundational to a sustainable reliability program, topics on Condition Monitoring have become rare and practitioners have few opportunities to learn from others in the field outside their own company”, said Jason Tranter, founder and CEO, Mobius Institute. “IMVAC was specifically created for vibration analysts, condition monitoring specialists, and reliability professionals. We want to share the successes of practical examples and inform practitioners of the new innovations available to manage equipment condition.”

With the growing success of IMVAC events, conference organizers announced that the new IMVAC Asia event will be held in Singapore on April 10-12, 2018. Venue selection is underway and will be announced in the coming weeks.
