About

Who are we?

Bram Vervisch and Bram Corne both graduated as doctor in electromechanical engineering (doctor in de ingenieurswetenschappen werktuigkunde elektrotechniek) at Ghent University. They founded the company “Orbits VOF – Advanced machine optimization” in January 2018. ORBITS measures, analyses and gives advice on dynamic rotating equipment as skilled ISO 18436 Cat. III and Cat. IV vibration specialists. They are active in the stage of development using analytical and finite element modelling, as well as on operational plants through troubleshooting, condition monitoring and root cause failure analysis. Additionally, we provide high-end coaching/consulting in signal processing, data handling and electrical/mechanical systems and processes.

Bram Vervisch, Founder & CTO

Bram Vervisch received the degree of Master of Science in industrial engineering at the technical University Howest in Kortrijk, 2008. After a short experience in industry, he joined the research group Dynamical Systems and Control at Ghent University where in 2010 he became a teaching assistant and started a PhD-research. His research was specifically on mechanical vibrations and rotordynamics. He has been teaching noise and vibration to engineers for several years. He is author or coauthor of 20 international publications from which 9 are published on the Web of Science and gave lectures at 5 international conferences.

Bram Corne, Founder & CEO

Bram Corne received the degree of Master of Science in industrial engineering at the technical University Howest in Kortrijk, 2012. He subsequently joined the electrotechnical research group EELAB – Lemcko at Ghent University where he started his PhD-research in January 2014. His research was fully focused on the application of condition monitoring on electric rotating machinery based on motor current signature analysis. This research led to 12 international publications in both scientific magazines and conference proceedings. His main contribution was finding the quantified relation between mechanical fault severity with the corresponding reflections in the stator current.
