Technical diagnostics and its tools are an integral part of every competitive business. Using their knowledge and professional applications have a major impact on failure-free operation of machinery, which is in close connection with economics, ecology and especially safety equipment. The goal is to nurture new talents in the field of technical diagnostics, familiarize them with new trends and practices in technical diagnostics. The use of measuring and computer technology in the fields of technical diagnostics, such as: - vibrodiagnostics, - acoustic diagnostics, - tribodiagnostics, - electrodiagnosis, - termodiagnostika, - balancing and alignment machines.
