"ITR" is short for Industrial Technology Research. Since inception, the focus of the company was and continues to be the application of technology to create the world's most reliable industrial systems.
In the 1970’s, a core team of electrical and mechanical engineers developed the computerized vibration analysis (CVA) process while working for the research arm of one of the largest manufacturers in the world at the time. Prior to CVA, engineers were required to analyze vibration data in the field using traditional data acquisition equipment and software. The technology limited practitioners in their abilities to predict potential failure modes using advanced analysis techniques. With CVA, practitioners could perform more comprehensive analysis either at the machine or from an office environment, dramatically improving the safety and overall effectiveness of the vibration analysis industry. Upon recognizing the commercial viability of CVA, the core team founded ITR.
Today, ITR is one of the original and largest independent predictive maintenance service organizations in the world focusing on improving return on assets through the integration of all major PdM technologies. With customers in most US states and over 20 countries on six continents, we remain one of the few PdM providers maintaining independence and a strict commitment to service.
