For parallelism measurement – and more!

Easy-Laser® E970 Parallelism system use the traditional method where a laser beam is pointed alongside the machine, and then deflected 90 degrees towards the measurement object by a penta prism.

The prism is moved along the beam, which is deflected to each roll that is to be measured, and maybe aligned. Both ends of the roll are measured, and you get an angular value which is compared to the reference line (base line) or a reference roll. Besides paper machines, printing machines and rolling mills you can also measure and align rails, overhead tracks, metal sheet cutters and many other types of machines.

The E970 is especially suitable when many objects are to be measured and aligned, and when measuring over a long distance. The maximum distance with a standard system is 80 metres, the number of measurement objects can be several hundred, but is more likely limited by other practical factors than the system software! The alignment of the rolls can be performed in live mode with instant feedback. You can add, remove and remeasure objects any time during measurement. The result is displayed both graphically and digitally in a table, and a PDF report can be produced directly on-site. Then transfer the results to your PC and the data base software EasyLink™ (included).

Versatile system for many different kinds of measurements

Easy-Laser® E970 is not only limited to parallelism measurement. You can also use the system to measure level, straightness and flatness on wire sections (suction boxes), flatness on foundations and straightness of rolls. With a few accessories you can also do shaft alignment. This makes the E970 a very cost effective solution for your maintenance department.

  • For traditional parallelism measurement with angular prism.2
  • Especially suitable when many objects are to be measured and aligned.
  • For machines up to 80 m (40 m+40 m).
  • Also measures level and flatness of suction boxes and foundations.

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
