Laser alignment determines shaft offsets

The Rotalign laser alignment is designed with a visible laser beam to determine shaft offsets and angularity with micron resolution, even over separations of up to 33 ft. The system is adaptable to most machine sets; selections include vertical machines, designation of stationary machine feet, uncoupled shafts and single-bearing machines. Once measurement starts, alignment can be calculated automatically from only a quarter turn of shaft rotation, and the user can follow corrections in the display while they are carried out. Alignment tolerances and targets may be entered in a choice of formats.
