Fast, easy alignment
17 April 2013
The correct alignment of coupled and uncoupled shafts is critical says Schaeffler to achieve high efficiency and reliability of rotating equipment, yet about 20% of rotating equipment is incorrectly aligned. A handheld laser optical alignment device from the company is said to enable faster, easier alignment of shafts in a wide range of equipment.
Weighing just 800g, FAG Top- Laser EQUILIGN is a compact device that guides the user step-bystep through the measurement process until correct shaft alignment is achieved. Graphical operating instructions and an intuitive autoflow function ensure all technicians can use the device.
Waterproof and contaminationresistant (protected to IP65), it is powered by batteries or rechargeable batteries. An integral light meter automatically adapts the brightness of the display. Up to 50 measurement files can be stored on the device.
