Reliability and precision

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 Easy-Laser® 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.

PROGRAMS AND FUNCTIONS

The key to a quick and reliable measurement are programs that guide you through the measurement process. The Easy-Laser® systems support you with smart functions and a clear user interface. Still, it is not our products that do the job, but you as a professional technician!
image description

Machine Train

Regardless of what machines you have and in which order they were assembled, you can build your own machine train with theoretically as many machines as you like. You can pick the reference machine manually, or let the program choose one that will minimize the need for adjustments. 

image description

VERTICAL/FLANGE MOUNTED MACHINES

This program is used for alignment of vertical and flange-mounted machines, e.g. pumps, motors, gear boxes. Shows centre offset, angular error and shim value at each bolt.

image description

VALUES - DIGITAL DIAL INDICATOR

The Values program can be used e.g. when one wants to measure as with dial gauges and to check bearing play or shaft load. With the standard equipment and completely normal set up on the machine!

image description

CARDAN/OFFSET MOUNTED MACHINES

Alignment of cardan/offset mounted machines. (Accessory Cardan fixture, Part No. 12-0615 is required.)

image description

BELT ALIGNMENT

Using the system you can align sheaves and pulleys with digital precision. Adjustment of the machines is displayed in real time on the screen, with readings for angle and axial displacement in both the vertical and horizontal axes, as well as an adjustment value for the front or rear foot pair. The result can be documented as normal. (Requires the E180 BTA accessory.)

image description

VIBRATION MEASUREMENT

The Vibration Measurement program allows you to measure vibration levels (mm/s, inch/s) and bearing condition (g-value). The program guides the user through the vertical, horizontal and axial points to measure on the machine. The result can be documented as usual. (Requires the E285 Vibrometer probe accessory.)

image description

SOFT FOOT CHECK

Alignment work begins with a soft foot check. The soft foot check ensures that the machine is resting evenly on all its feet by indicating which foot/feet should be adjusted. This is an important part of securing a reliable alignment. After the soft foot check is com- plete, you can go directly to the alignment program with all of the machine’s distance values saved.

image description

EASYTURN™ FUNCTION

The EasyTurn™ function allows you to begin the measurement process from anywhere on the turn. You can turn the shaft to any three positions with as little as 20° between each position to register the measurement values. Voila! Measurement is complete!

image description

Result table

The result table shows how well your readings repeat and lets you save comments for each one.

image description

MEASUREMENT VALUE FILTER

An advanced electronic filter function can be used to achieve reliable results even under poor measuring conditions. Air turbulence and vibrations from adjacent machines are no match for the Easy-Laser® filter function!

image description

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.

Document your data

Connect to you computer

The display unit is connected to the computer via the USB port. It then appears on the desktop as a USB Mass Storage Device from which you can easily transfer files.
 

EASYLINK™ PC SOFTWARE

With the EasyLink™ database program you can save and organise all your measurements in one place, produce reports with both data and images and export to your maintenance systems. You can customise what your Excel reports should look like and what data should be visible and where it should be positioned. The program has a clear folder structure, where you drag and drop files from the display unit to the database. Create your own structure with folders for manufacturer, department or machine type for example. The database can also be located on a common server and shared with other users. For extra safety you can use EasyLink™ to make backups of what you have saved in the display unit.

MAKE A PRINTOUT

Quickly print all measurement data locally with a thermal printer (accessory).
 

BARCODE READER

The barcode reader is used to enter the measurement object data automatically before measurement, which can save you time, and minimizes errors. Barcode reader is accessory for all systems but E530.

CREATE A PDF REPORT DIRECTLY

When measurement is complete it is possible to generate a PDF report containing graphs and measurement data directly in the measurement system’s display unit. All the information about the measurement object is documented, and you can add your company’s logo and address details if you so wish.
 

SAVE IN BUILT-IN MEMORY

Save all measurements in the display unit’s internal memory. 
 

SAVE TO USB MEMORY

Save desired measurements on your USB memory. This enables you to take it to your computer to print reports whilst leaving the measurement system in place.
