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. For you as a user, this gives future assurance and a hard to beat financial advantage. Quite simply extremely cost effective. 

Shipyards

There are many applications for laser measurement at a shipyard, such as when building new ships, repairing damaged ones and for regular maintenance.

Power and heat generation

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.

Diesel engines and gearboxes

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. Both bearing halves and complete bearings can be measured, and the bearing journals can have different diameters.

Pulp and paper

Machinery breakdowns in the pulp and paper industry cost an enormous amount of money. That’s why preventive maintenance is of the utmost importance. Easy-Laser minimizes the risks of unscheduled operational downtime and ensures product quality.

Process industry

Within the process industry, operations usually occur 24 hours a day, all year round. This places extremely high demands on preventative maintenance work.

Plastics industry

Many types of machinery within the plastics industry need to be checked and aligned. On extrusion machines, straightness of pipes, shaft alignment and pointing direction of gearboxes towards pipes all need to be checked. On film blowing machines, centring and parallelism of rolls must be checked.

Sawmills

Being able to measure and align supports, holders, counterholds and circular saw blades in the sawmill quickly, easily and in a flexible way is important for maintaining the quality of the sawn product and thereby assuring yields.

Shaft alignment

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 losses. This, of course, increases overall maintenance costs.

Belt alignment

A common misunderstanding is that sheave/pulleys are not significantly affected by misalignments. This assumption means that the industry has unnecessarily high electricity bills. Several studies have shown that proper alignment can lead to savings of up to 10% in energy costs alone!

Straightness

Straightness is measured daily in many industries. For example, members, rollers, pipes, machine ends, machine runners and conveyors. Straightness measurements are also carried out for bearing positions, in, for example, diesel engines. Straightness is often a basic requirement in order for a machine to function correctly and/or produce fault-free parts.

Flatness

Flatness measurement is carried out, for example, on machine tables, wire ends in papermaking machines, flanges and slewing bearings (circular planes), machine bases etc.

Squareness

The checking of squareness is carried out in a large number of applications, such as machine tools, co-ordinate measurement machines and mechanical constructions.

Parallelism

Examples include measurement of mutual parallelism between rolls and other surfaces in papermaking machines, printing presses, rolling mills, etc. Other examples are overhead tracks, rails and press machine tables.
