Most maintenance technicians who work with pumps and motors also have other types of rotating machinery to maintain: sheave/pulleys, for example. Our XT Alignment app includes a measurement program for alignment of sheave/pulleys. Using this and the XT190 BTA accessory, you can align most types of radial transmission with digital precision -- i.e., you can align it to the tolerance indicated by the belt manufacturer. In this way, you will extend the life of the belts and pulleys, increase efficiency, and reduce electricity costs and vibration levels. In short, you will save big on costs.
Digital reading means that, among other things, you can monitor the alignment from the adjustment point.
A comparison between a digital tool and older conventional methods, such as a ruler or string, shows the many benefits that come with using laser tools: you can bring the reading device to the side of the machine, where you can make adjustments and continuously track them, instead of going back and forth to check the outcome. You can adjust both horizontally and vertically in the same procedure. And not least of all, you can document the outcome of the alignment!
Easy-Laser® XT280 VIB for simple vibration analysis.
Our latest addition to the XT Alignment app is the measurement program for simple vibration analysis. With the new XT280 VIB, you can quickly diagnose vibration levels, imbalance, incorrect alignment, etc., on pumps, engines, fans and bearings. The instrument displays 1x, 2x, 3x RPM, total level, and bearing condition value, which together provide the information required for installation and alignment. And the app also documents the results!
Equip your XT11 display unit with a thermal camera and locate the areas on the machine that may be unusually hot.
Another great tool for maintenance technicians is the thermal camera. You can have this tool built into our award-winning reading unit, the XT11. This is unique for a laser measurement system! Use the camera to locate the areas on the machine that may be unusually hot. For example, you can photograph the machine before and after alignment. Unlike many other display devices on the market with a built-in thermal camera, we have customised ours for the most common temperature range for rotating machinery in industrial use, i.e. 0 to 450 °C (32 to 842 °F), rather than primarily for household applications. In addition, you can view everything on a large 8” display.
Maximum control: The Easy-Laser XT660 system, with a case that holds everything you need for shaft alignment, belt alignment (XT190), the XT280 vibrometer, and the XT11 display unit with thermal camera.
Both the XT190 and XT280 are perfect accessories for your shaft alignment system, but it is worth noting that they can also be used as standalone tools with their built-in displays, or together with the free XT Alignment app on your smartphone.
Easy-Laser is the most flexible and expandable alignment system on the market. If you want to know more about our products, you can download each product brochure in your language here.
The app (Easy-Laser XT Alignment) can be downloaded and tried out free of charge, from the App Store or Google Play.
