Honeywell and Vibratech Expand HUMS Network

 - April 14, 2016, 10:00 AM

Honeywell Aerospace (Booth P122) has signed a distribution agreement with Vibratech International, which is already a Honeywell-licensed maintenance services and technical support provider, to expand the distribution network for Honeywell’s health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS). The link-up will help provide better support for helicopter operators in China, the companies said.

Honeywell’s HUMS is a sensor-based system that monitors the health and performance of components. The new agreement allows users across China to receive faster responses to their requests, as well as localized product training. This growing distribution network improves helicopter rotor-track balance and vibration monitoring needs for helicopter operators.

“Search and rescue mission medical services make up the largest percentage of helicopter usage in China, where mountains, plateaus and hills account for 70 percent of land,” said Vibratech International general manager Nico Demonei. “The new agreement allows helicopter operators to receive additional support across Greater China through a combination of our expertise and Honeywell’s HUMS.”
