Easy-Laser® E960 - Turbine alignment

Reliabile and precise turbine alignment

Easy-Laser® E960 Turbine alignment systems make the measurement and adjustment work of diapraghms and bearings easier thanks to the wireless detector unit and measurement programs that guides you through the measurement process. 

All of the parts included in the systems are designed and built for even the most demanding workplace and for easy setup on any machinery. The versatile design solves the straightness measurement problems quickly and with precision for any kind of application. Objects up to 40 m (132 feet) can be measured. The detector reads measurement values with a resolution of 0.001 mm (0.05 mils).

Easy-Laser® E960-A and E960-B

The system comes in two versions. Easy-Laser® E960-A has a measuring probe with a stroke of 10 mm. The slidable tube makes it possible to measure several positions in a row without moving the bracket. Suitable for gas turbines and smaller steam turbines. Easy-Laser® E960-B has a measuring probe with a stroke of 60 mm. This system is suitable for larger turbines. Software, laser transmitter and detector are common to the systems. The detector brackets differ. See system content under tab "System parts".

Versatile programs

The straightness programs of system E960 are very versatile, and let you work in the way that suits every job best. You can add, remove and remeasure measurement points at any time during the measurement. Up to 999 points can be handled by the program. You can include both full bores and half bores in any possible combination in one measurement, the program will calculate the correct centre line in all cases. The measurement program includes many different methods for straightness measurement: 1-point measurement, 4-point measurement, Multipoint measurement (also ovality measurement), 3-point measurement, 3-point measurement with arbitrary angles. Optionally a reference detector can be used to monitor the laser transmitter position at long distances.

The measurement result

Thanks to the large colour display with clear graphs and measurement data you can evaluate the result directly on site. Any point can be set as reference and you can set an offset to which the centre line will be recalculated. You can also calculate waviness (short and long) and best-fit for the points. If you want, the result can also be checked against a tolerance value. The measurement system takes care of all these complicated calculations for you.

Measurement programs

The featured programs below are the most common used with this system. Please click here for a complete overview of possibilities.
*=accessories needed

Half circle, Straightness 3-point

Readings taken in three positions: 9, 6 and 3. Allows varying diameters. To be used together with the turbine system. With advanced "best-fit" calculations.

Centre-of-circle, Straightness 2-point

Used for straightness measurement of bearing journals when the bore diameter varies. For example, diesel engines, propeller shaft installations, etc. With advanced "best-fit" calculations.

Straightness, 4-point

Used for straightness measurement of bearing journals. Measures two points in each direction, X and Y. Can handle up to 999 measurement points with two zero points. With advanced "best-fit" calculations.

Straightness, Multipoint

Used for straightness measurement of bearing journals. The number of measurement positions are theoretically unlimited for each measurement point. Can handle up to 999 measurement points with two zero points. With advanced "best-fit" calculations.

Ovality/roundness

For ovality measurements of bore and bearing journals. The number of measurement positions are theoretically unlimited for each bore.

Straightness measurement

With our program for measuring straightness, you can easily measure long shafts, rolls, bearings, bases, machine structures etc. All you have to do is define a number of measuring points, in advance or while measuring. You will be able to get the result for both the horizontal and vertical alignment, graphically as well as digitally.

Display unit E51

The display unit for the E series enables you to work more efficiently and for longer than ever before thanks to several innovative solutions. It is also ergonomically designed with easy-to-grip rubber cladding and robust construction.

 

Never lose power

The display unit is equipped with our Endurio™ Power management system. This ensures that you never have to stop in the middle of a measurement because the battery has run out.

Ergonomic design

The display unit has a thin, easy-to-grip and rubber coated profile that ensures a secure grip. It has large well-spaced buttons that give clear feedback when pushed. In addition, the two Enter buttons make the system suitable for both right and left-handed users. The display screen has clear graphics that guide you through the measurement process.

Personal settings

You can create a user profile where you can save your personal settings. You can also have different settings for different types of measurements. It makes work faster!

Language selection

You can choose the language that you want to appear on screen. English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Polish, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are available. 

Upgrading

If you wish to expand functionality in the future, the software in the display unit can be upgraded via the internet or by connecting a USB memory containing the new software. In this way you will also have access to the measurement programmes that we develop for new purposes in the future.
