Laser Shaft Alignment Services
Properly aligned machines are vital to achieving great uptime.
We use best practices for the alignment of motor shafts or belts. Done properly during installation or after a repair, laser alignment helps eliminate increased energy consumption and bearing wear.
How does laser shaft alignment work?
Laser shaft alignment is the process of using laser beams to align two or more shafts so that they are perfectly parallel to each other. This ensures that the bearings and other components attached to the shafts are not subject to excessive wear and tear, which can lead to costly repairs.
When laser shaft alignment is performed during installation, it can save money in the long run by preventing premature wear and tear on bearings and other components on rotating machinery. It can also save energy, as properly aligned shafts will not cause increased friction.
Laser alignment is a precision measurement that should be performed by trained personnel. We provide both laser shaft alignment and training for your business.
Shaft Alignment Tools & Benefits
A laser shaft alignment tool is a device that uses laser sensors to align two or more shafts. This ensures that the bearings and other components attached to the shafts are not subject to excessive wear and tear, which can lead to costly repairs. Our laser shaft alignment tool of choice is the OPTAlign Smart RS laser alignment system.
The OptaAlign Smart RS laser alignment tool is a precision measurement tool that is easy to use and provides accurate results. It is the perfect choice for businesses that want to save money by preventing premature wear and tear on bearings and other components.
There are many benefits to using a laser shaft alignment system including:
- Reduced wear and tear on bearings and other components
- Increased energy efficiency
- Reduced downtime for repairs
- Greater overall productivity
- Detecting excessive vibration
How often should laser shaft alignment be performed?
It is recommended that laser shaft alignment be performed whenever a machine is installed or repaired. This will ensure that the bearings and other components are not subject to excessive wear and tear, which can lead to costly repairs.
As laser shaft alignments are recommended upon installation and repair of vital assets we commonly include this service in many of our predictive maintenance programs.
