VibroTek, Inc. was founded in 1996 as Inteltek Enterprises,
Inc. with the purpose of introducing to the world market conversion technologies
for extraction of diagnostic information from the acoustic and vibration signals.
These technologies had been developed by Russian and American experts and the
wide application of them became possible in recent years with the development of
microcomputers with great computational power and means for interfacing
computers to noise and vibration transducers. The main goal of VibroTek is the
development and support of compete software systems for condition monitoring,
automatic diagnostics and long term forecast of the machine condition and also
for the rotor balancing. These software systems are based on thirty years of
investigations of vibration issues and of field machine diagnostics by experts
of Russia and the USA. The first versions of these systems are already being
used in a number of industries in Russia in both continuous and off-line
condition monitoring and automatic diagnostics systems.
VibroAcoustical Systems and Technologies, Inc. (VAST, Inc.) is one of the first
private companies in Russia to that deal with information technologies in the
field of signal analysis and condition diagnostics. It unites the leading
experts and developers of conversion technologies who had many years of
practical experience the Russian Navy, the authors of dozens of Russian patents,
and a number of text books and monographs. The technologies developed by them
are widely used in the number of industries in Russia and also in medicine.
The wide investigations conducted by our specialists resulted in the development
of the first expert systems for condition monitoring and diagnostics used in the
Russian Navy in 1970-80s. In addition, we have developed fully automatic systems
for condition diagnostics and long term forecast using the results of noise and
vibration measurements. These systems can operate without a qualified expert in
In 1992, we introduced the first portable system for automatic condition
diagnostics of rolling element bearings using Bruel & Kjaer instruments and the
first generation of Russian instrumentation. In 1993, we developed a multi-plane
balancing software and, in 1994, condition monitoring and diagnostics systems
for rotating machines. They are currently in use by more than a hundred
enterprises in Russia, Canada, Austria and other counties.
In 1995 VAST, Inc. delivers its first continuous monitoring and diagnostic
system based on standard computers. In 1997, we have developed the first
portable systems for automatic condition diagnostics software for the on
Diagnostic Instruments Ltd. data collectors and in 1996, similar software for
the Bruel & Kjaer type 2526 data collector.
Starting in1997, the new generation data collectors are being produced in Russia.
VibroTek and VAST, Inc. have prepared a new generation of software with enhanced
diagnostic capabilities running in MS Windows-95 for these data collectors. We
can recommend licensing this software or parts of it to any companies that
produce measurement instrumentation capable of required diagnostic measurements.
In parallel to the development and support of diagnostic methods and software,
the specialists of VAST, Inc. deliver a number of lectures and seminars in the
St. Petersburg Marine Technical University, Postgraduate Education University in
St. Petersburg, Russia. You can find our articles in a number of international
journals and conference proceedings. Some of them are presented on this Internet
