Applications
for laser alignment

Our product range is divided into three main groups: Shaft alignment, Belt alignment and Geometric measurement technology. But don’t be limited by it. You can usually combine those systems and parts that meet your needs, i.e. laser transmitters, detectors and brackets (please see Combined systems for examples). For you as a user, this gives future assurance and a hard to beat financial advantage. Quite simply extremely cost effective.

Rotating Machinery

Incorrectly aligned shafts and the consequences of this are behind more than 50 % of all malfunctions in rotating machines. This increases unscheduled downtime and therefore production loses. This, of course, increases overall maintenance costs.
A common misunderstanding is that sheave/pulleys are not affected dramatically by misalignments. This assumption means that the industry has unnecessarily high electricity costs. Several investigations have shown savings up to 10 % in energy costs alone!

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

There are many applications for laser measurement at a shipyard, such as when building new ships, repairing damaged ones and for regular maintenance.
Earlier methods for measuring turbines were very time-consuming. With laser measurement, the work can be performed quickly and with extremely high precision. The potential to document measurement results is also a great advantage.
There are many determining factors for alignment within the paper and pulp industry. The rolls in a papermaking machine must be parallel with each other, as the quality of the finished paper will otherwise be poor.
The Easy-Laser® Linebore system checks the straightness of e.g. the crankshaft and camshaft bearing centre lines, with a resolution of 0.001 mm and a maximum measurement distance of 40 metres
There are many applications for the Easy-Laser® systems in the wind power generation industry. The fact is that Easy-Laser® is one of the world’s largest suppliers of laser based measurement systems to the wind power industry.
Within the process industry, operations usually occur 24 hours a day, all year round. This places extremely high demands on preventative maintenance work.
