Easy-Laser® E710 - Shaft alignment
With system Easy-Laser® E710 you ensure that the machines have optimal conditions for problem-free operation, without risk of unplanned downtime etc. Carry out the following:
Easy-Laser® E710 is an alignment system that is complete in its full meaning. It does not just give you all the functions for shaft alignment, it also gives the opportunity to check the machine base and any bearing play using the standard equipment.
Programs for horizontal machines, soft foot checks, machine trains, vertical/flange mounted and cardan/offset mounted machines are included. Furthermore programs for straightness, flatness/twist and parallelism measurement are included. Using accessories you can also align sheaves/pulleys with digital precision and check vibration levels. Large, clear colour screen, wireless measuring units (included as standard), long operating life and robust design give a measurement system that is both reliable and easy to use.
When we talk about simplicity we mean several things, for example, simple to place or mount the measurement equipment on the measurement object, easy to perform the measurement and easy to interpret the measurement result. With Easy-Laser® E710 you can measure all types of rotating machinery, large and small, equally well, regardless of shaft diameter.
Wireless measuring units (laser/detector) enable you to work more freely. The measurement values can be registered with only 40° rotation of the shafts. You can then align it ”live” using the measuring units in any position around the shaft. The programs guide you step-by-step through the measuring procedure for the perfect measuring result.
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.
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.
Alignment of cardan/offset mounted machines. (Accessory Cardan fixture, Part No. 12-0615 is required.)
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 twist measurement program allows you to check the flatness or twist of the machine foundation using only the measuring units in the system.
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!
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. To get even more out of your system, add the D22 swiveling laser.
Program to measure flatness/twist of (for example) machine bases, machine tables, etc. With advanced "best-fit" calculations.
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 preferred method for situations where the machine to be aligned is mounted on a moving object, and it is not possible to use the inclinometers (e.g., on ships, cranes, wind turbines etc.).
Ideal method for coupled machines where you manually rotate the shafts to any position. 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. An easier-to-use version of the three-point method (see 9–12–3).
Multi point is basically the same as EasyTurn™, but instead you can record multiple points on the sector rotated. This will provide an optimized calculation basis. Perfect for e.g. turbine and sliding bearing applications.
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.
Choose from different machines to portray your machinery on either side of the coupling.
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 from the XT11 display unit 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 for the E series enables you to work more efficiently and for longer than ever before thanks to several innovative solutions. It is also ergonomically designed with easy-to-grip rubber cladding and robust construction.
The display unit has a thin, easy-to-grip and rubber coated profile that ensures a secure grip. It has large well-spaced buttons that give clear feedback when pushed. In addition, the two Enter buttons make the system suitable for both right and left-handed users. The display screen has clear graphics that guide you through the measurement process.
You can create a user profile where you can save your personal settings. You can also have different settings for different types of measurements. It makes work faster!
You can choose the language that you want to appear on screen. English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Polish, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are available.
If you wish to expand functionality in the future, the software in the display unit can be upgraded via the internet or by connecting a USB memory containing the new software. In this way you will also have access to the measurement programmes that we develop for new purposes in the future.
Note: Dust and splash guards for connectors that are not used when measuring
The measuring units have large 20 mm [0.78” sq] detector surfaces (PSD for the greatest accuracy) which allows the possibility of measuring at a distance of up to 20 metres[66 feet]. The substantial and rigid design of aluminium and stainless steel guarantees stable measurement values and reliable alignment with the greatest precision in even the toughest of environments. The measuring units are also water and dust proof to classes IP66 and IP67. Connect to the display unit via cable or wirelessly. Both cable and wireless units are connected quickly using Push/Pull connections, no screwing required.
With electronic inclinometers in both measuring units the system knows exactly how they are positioned. This also makes it very easy to align uncoupled shafts.
Thanks to the two axis detectors you have access to electronic targets, that is you can see on the screen where the laser beams hit.
The thinking behind the rigid and compact design, is that it will simplify positioning and provide varying installation methods. You can measure all types of rotating machine, large and small, equally well, regardless of shaft diameter. The units also have two extra screw holes for additional mounting options.
The so called reversed measurement method with two laser beams and two PSDs makes it possible to also measure very incorrectly set machines. This is particularly good for new installations, where the machines are not yet in the correct position.
