Laser Shaft Alignment Advantages
11-09-2007 

Laser shaft alignment delivers powerful cost savings to plants running all types of rotating equipment.



The Accuracy of Laser Alignement Reduces Bearing/Seal Costs


Properly aligned motors and pumps or other equipment will last longer, perform better and use less electricity. Laser shaft alignment is an extremely fast and highly accurate tool to align motors to pumps. Not only will you perform motor/pump alignment in record time, but you will also increase the life of motor bearings and seals, potentially saving thousands of dollars annually in reduced maintenance costs. And depending on how many motors you have, the investment will most often pay for itself inside the very first year through reduced repair costs.



Lasers Are Simply Faster



After more than 15 years of laser shaft alignment, it is now an established fact that lasers are simply faster than indicator based methods. The bigger the motor, the more time saved during alignments. On larger systems with critical alignments, using an advanced laser system has been shown to be able to reduce alignment times literally from days to hours. On critical machinery where downtime is very costly, this time saving is especially valuable.



Live Data in 4 Axes and Shim Values Really Speed Alignments



Advanced systems such as the Hamar S-650 show both the horizontal and vertical misalignment for both angle and center at the same time in real time. Combining this with Windows-based software that calculates shim values really saves time. No longer will you have to guess how far your horizontal moves are going. You will know instantly with the S-650.



Indicator Methods Not Accurate Enough



With the advent of vibration analysis and thermal imaging, it is becoming clear that indicator-based methods are no longer good enough. To reduce vibrations and bearing-destroying heat, motors must be aligned very accurately. Indicator methods do a reasonable job of aligning the centers of the shafts but a poor job of making them parallel; large angular misalignments are common. By contrast, the S-650 provides the needed accuracy to reduce excess vibrations and heat so motors last their full theoretical service life. 



Laser Alignment Makes PM Programs More Efficient



If you have a preventative maintenance program, an advanced laser aligner such as the S-650 provides a vital tool. Whether you are changing a worn-out motor or simply performing a PM check, the S-650 will help you perform alignments faster and more accurately than before. It literally takes the S-650 about 5 minutes to set up and display misalignment data. You will know instantly whether you have to align a motor or not. And with our computer-based laser system, reports and saving alignment data have never been easier. The computer can store thousand's of alignment reports and you can even email reports directly from the alignment computer to your customer.


Automatic Sweep Function Saves Even More Time



In comparison to older laser technologies, advanced systems such as the S-650 use an accelerometer to provide rotation angle measurements, eliminating the "clock method" many other laser systems still use today. This rotation sensor automatically detects "start" and "stop" points, and works with a sweep angle of as little as 60 degrees, which is especially useful in cramped conditions. This delivers both a significant further time saving as well as simplifying the operating procedure and eliminating many potential operator errors.



Able to Works in Direct Sunlight



With a new internal light meter, the Hamar S-650 actually provides a display of how sunlight is affecting the readings. In most cases, the S-650 will actually work in direct sunlight without having to put up tarps or other shade devices. We took it down to a pipeline company and did an alignment on a sunny day surrounded by bright, white piping. It was so bright, we had to wear sunglasses to see, yet the S-650 performed flawlessly!



Universal Brackets Eliminate Bulky Accessories



One set of mounting brackets is all that is needed to align 95% of the motors out in the field. The brackets accommodate shafts from 8mm to 305mm, without modification, and the can be easily expanded to fit larger shafts to 500mm. For very special applications, an additional range of bracket accessories are available such as for non-rotating shafts, and offset brackets for very short shafts.
