Easy-Laser® E540 - Shaft alignment
Easy-Laser® E540 is a precise and competent alignment system for your rotating machinery. Easy-Laser® E540 provides the ideal balance between performance and price allowing you to create the best conditions to operate your machinery economically and problem-free.
The E540 system includes measurement programs for horizontal machines, vertical machines and alignment of machine trains with three machines. The measuring units are pre-mounted for rapid machine set-up. Start with the measuring units positioned anywhere through 360 ° around the shaft, then take any three readings down to 20° in-between. Then adjust the machine with the live-values in both horizontal and vertical directions. A PDF report is generated automatically when the measurements are saved. Simple and efficient!
The shaft alignment system has a large 5.7", bright colour display that clearly shows all the steps of the measurement. The measuring units have TruePSD-technology, which gives unlimited resolution. Twin laser beams, twin PSDs and twin inclinometers give you superb control of the measurement in all situations. The measuring units are incredibly compact featuring wireless technology, an integrated rechargeable battery and large 30 mm TruePSD detectors. This means that they are easy to install on most types of machines, even where there is limited space. The wireless technology gives you full freedom of movement around the machine that is to be aligned. Display unit, measuring units and fixtures are all very robust for the highest accuracy in demanding industrial environments.
Using XT190 BTA you can check and align sheaves and pulleys with digital precision. You can document the measurements for belt alignment in the same way as for the normal shaft alignment programs. There is also a wide range of accessory brackets, such as magnet bases, axial magnet brackets and brackets for non-rotating shafts. The transportation case is equipped with recessed compartments for the accessories, which means that you can carry everything in one case.
The featured programs below are the most common used with this system. Please click here for a complete overview of possibilities.
Horizontally mounted machines often consist of a pump and a motor, but can also include other types of machines such as gearboxes and compressors. Regardless of the machine type, it is easy to measure and align with Easy-Laser®. The measuring units (M and S) are easily mounted on each side of the coupling and communicate with the display unit wireless. Then follow the step-by-step instructions on screen.
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.
For alignment of machine trains with three machines. You can pick the reference machine manually, or let the program choose one that will minimize the need for adjustments.
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 complete, you can go directly to the alignment program with all of the machine’s distance values saved.
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!
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 XT190 BTA accessory.)
Measurement points are recorded at fixed points 9, 12 and 3 o’clock. This is the classic three-point method which can be used in most cases.
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!
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!
The result table shows how well your readings repeat and lets you save comments for each one.
This function allows you to adjust machines in real time with the measuring units positioned anywhere on the shaft. It is ideal for situations in which outside objects interfere with normal positioning.
This function allows you to lock any pair of feet on the machine, giving you more freedom when aligning,base-bound or bolt-bound machines.
The software can adjust to machine designs of all types such as those with two pairs of feet, three pairs of feet, and feet in front of the coupling, etc.
Oftentimes, machines expand considerably when moving from a cold to hot operating temperature. The Thermal Growth Compensation function allows the measurement system to calculate the appropriate shims and values needed to make adjustments in such cases. Compensation values for the machines are normally supplied by the manufacturers.
Measurement results can be checked against pre-defined tolerance tables or values you determine yourself. This allows you to immediately see if the alignment is within the approved parameters, thereby considerably reducing the amount of time spent on alignment.
The swap view function allows you to adjust the position of the motor on screen to correspond with the position of the machine in front of you, making it easier to understand adjustment directions.
Save measurement files as templates, with machine data and settings, to quickly start measurements.
The software is available in 14 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Russian, Swedish, Finnish, Brazilian Portugese, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (traditional and simplified).
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.
Save your files to USB and copy to other devices.
Save all measurements in the display unit’s internal memory.
When measurement is complete it is possible to generate a PDF report containing graphs and measurement data. All the information about the measurement object is documented, and you can add your company’s logo and address details if you so wish.
Quickly print all measurement data locally with a thermal printer (accessory).
The display unit has a thin, easy-to-grip rubber coated exterior for secure handling. Enter buttons on each side make the system suitable for both right and left-handed users. The large well-spaced panel buttons correspond to clear graphics that guide you through the measurement process with ease.
You can choose the language that you want to appear on screen. English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Dutch, Polish, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are available.
If you wish to expand functionality, the display unit software can be upgraded via the internet or with a USB memory stick containing the new software. The upgrade feature also provides access to any new measurement programs we develop in the future.
The measuring units have large detectors (TruePSD) that allow you to measure from distances up to 10 metres (33 feet). The substantial design made of aluminium and stainless steel guarantees precise measurement and reliable alignment in even the toughest environments. The measuring units are water and dust proof to class IP65.
The measuring units are connected to the display unit wirelessly, which gives you full freedom to move around your machines with the display unit!
For charging, connect the two measuring units to the display unit with the supplied splitter cable. This way you can also supply the measuring units with power during measurement, if needed.
