Laser shaft alignment is the process of aligning two or more shafts with each other to within a specified tolerance. It is an absolute requirement for machinery before the machinery is put in service. We only use Easy-Laser’s equipment as we consider it the best in the world for accuracy, ease of use and reliability.
Advantages of Laser Shaft Alignment:
A major advantage of laser alignment tools is their accuracy. Unlike some dial indicators, there is no bar sag that needs to be measured and accounted for. Readings are also very precise. Lasers are considerably easier and faster than dial gauges. Because a laser measurement system can automatically compensate for thermal growth and indicate a good alignment, i.e. is within the tolerances for the relevant machine. For example, fixtures for dial gauges always drop a little, which affects the accuracy of the gauge’s displayed value. Play and clearance can also easily occur in mountings. Another factor that can affect the alignment result is the fact that gauges often have small scales and are difficult to read in poor light conditions. Rulers and dial gauges are not a sufficiently accurate method for today’s modern machines.
