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 (please see Combined systems for examples). For you as a user, this gives future assurance and a hard to beat financial advantage. Quite simply extremely cost effective. 

Rotating Machinery

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

Belt Alignment

A common misunderstanding is that sheave/pulleys are not affected dramatically by misalignments. This assumption means that the industry has unnecessarily high electricity costs. Several investigations have shown savings up to 10 % in energy costs alone!

Geometric measurement

Straightness

Straightness is measured daily in many industries. For example, members, rollers, pipes, machine ends, machine runners and conveyors.

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.

Read more

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 of parallelism measurement include mutual parallelism between rolls and other surfaces in papermaking machines, printing presses, rolling mills, etc

Spindle Direction

It is important to measure the direction in which machine spindles are pointing in many machines, such as lathes, drilling machines, automatic drills, boring machines, milling machines, etc.

Level and Plumb

Measurements of straightness as well as centre line relative to an absolute plumb line are made, for example, on vertical turbines and generator shafts.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

SHIP INDUSTRY

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

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.

Pulp and paper

There are many determining factors for alignment within the paper and pulp industry. The rolls in a papermaking machine must be parallel with each other, as the quality of the finished paper will otherwise be poor.

DIESEL ENGINES

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

WIND POWER

There are many applications for the 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.

PROCESS

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

Read more

PLASTIC

There are many types of machine within the plastic industry that 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.

Read more

MACHINE TOOLS

In order to meet quality requirements and minimise the number of waste workpieces, the checking and alignment of machine tools is essential.

OTHER INDUSTRIES

Even the basic version of the measurement systems are extremely versatile, both when it comes to brackets and measurement programs. The only real limitation for what you can measure with Easy-Laser® is your own imagination!
