This paper addresses the commissioning of an industrial 9-axes oil-free integrated motor-compressor that is installed on an off-shore oil rig. The magnetic bearing system and advanced software tools are shown to support the machine mechanical assembly, testing, and long term operation protection. The magnetic bearings are used as measurement devices to reduce commissioning time and, because of the high hard- and software integration level of machine and measurement, to improved commissioning quality and reliable long term operation. Measurement data from the commissioning of the machine are presented.
