There are many applications for 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. This applies to, for example, systems for the alignment of gearboxes and generators, both during installation and out in the field during continuous maintenance work.
Another large application is systems for measuring flatness of tower flanges. For manufacturers of vanes, we also supply equipment for measuring and aligning the centre line of the jigs, as well as their squareness. Several of the measurement systems have been especially adapted for the producer’s specific turbines.
When it comes to wind power generation, we are talking about the alignment of generators and gearboxes. Large forces are in action in a wind turbine. The safety of the maintenance technicians is therefore of the utmost importance. With the Easy-Laser® shaft alignment system the generator and gearbox can be aligned with the coupling dismounted and the brake locked.
