Register today for Machine Dynamics’ Balancing Training, held Nov. 14-15, 2017, and their Alignment Training, held Nov. 16-17. Both events will be held in Albuquerque, NM.

The instructor is Victor Wowk, P.E., the president of Machine Dynamics, Inc. His company specializes in solving vibration problems on machinery and he regularly applies the technologies that he teaches. Mr. Wowk is the author of the following textbooks published by McGraw-Hill: Machinery Vibration: Measurement and Analysis, 1991Machinery Vibration: Balancing, 1995, and Machinery Vibration: Alignment, 2000.

Guest speakers, who are experts in their field, may present special topics.

Each student will receive the applicable textbooks and a certificate with the appropriate Continuing Education Units (CEU) annotated. Additional handouts, materials of lists of supplies, commercial brochures, and article reprints will be available to students.

These courses are completely non-commercial except to provide knowledge. Machine Dynamics is not affiliated with any vibration analysis instruments, but they believe that one reason for attending seminars is to discover what is available on the market and where to buy it. This information will be provided, along with unbiased discussions of what is a better choice for certain applications.
