The reasons we like selling Hamar Stealth Shaft Alignment Lasers

Soft Foot in Shaft Alignment
It is impossible to properly align a machine with a soft foot, but as many types of Soft Foot condition exist it is important to understand the possible causes.

S-670 - The All Rounder
Laser Shaft Alignment, Stealth S-670

A Robust Alignment Laser for Speed and Accuracy Day-In and Day-Out

The Stealth S-670 is a simple to use, high performance shaft alignment laser, designed for maximum efficiency in the majority of laser shaft alignment applications. It has an open software configuration that allows upgrades to be added at any time to meet specific additional alignment, vibration and balancing needs.

Advanced Standard Features of the S-670 Laser Alignment System Include:

  • Wireless Bluetooth Operation
  • Fast Auto Sweep Laser Measurement
  • >0.001mm Laser Target Resolution
  • Simple 5-Step Laser Alignment Checklist Software
  • Live Colour Alignment Graphics and Shim/Move Values
  • Green Light Recommended or User Defined Alignment Tolerances
  • Softfoot Measurement and Correction
  • Thermal Growth Offsets
  • Rugged Hand-held HiRes Laser Display
  • Auto report with integrated photos and signature
  • Print or email direct from the laser control
  • Long Life LiPo Rechargeable Battery

The unique dual laser beam super linear 3-axis measuring technology of the S-670 provides direct position and angle measurements with micron resolution and automatic rotation sensing, as well as a 30mm x 10mm sensor measurement range to directly accommodate initial rough shaft and coupling alignment.

This system allows shaft and coupling alignments to be done quickly and simply with a single sweep of the shafts through any angle (> 60 degrees) to automatically generate required alignment shimming and adjustment values. Start and stop of laser shaft rotation can be done at any angle and are automatically sensed, with no buttons to press.

Live alignment graphics of the shaft rotation show the operator exactly where he is in the alignment process and what data has been recorded.

Fully wireless Bluetooth operation is standard, eliminating potentially dangerous cables from the working area, making shaft rotations easier and allowing the hand-held display to be moved to any convenient position, which is especially useful during "live" foot adjustment on large equipment. The bluetooth radio module is built into the laser receiver and does not require additional batteries.

The laser and target are equipped with the latest technology in rechargeable internal Lithium Polymer batteries, suitable for more than a full day's work without recharging (laser 30+ hours, target 12 hours).

The operator is fully guided through a clear and simple 5-point laser alignment checklist by the system software, which includes a procedure for soft-foot measurement and correction prior to shaft and coupling alignment.

laser shaft alignment direct position & angle measurement technology

The laser control unit provides a high resolution graphics display with easy to read numbers and a clear pictorial representation of the shaft alignment errors. The alignment errors and required shimming values are displayed in a single screen. A 2-axis live display guides equipment positional adjustments.

Total elimination of the traditional need for "Clock" shaft positions to be correctly oriented and for laser reading values to be inverted according to shaft radial positions removes common sources of operator error.

A laser range of 10m makes the system also suitable for long shaft alignments and jack shaft couplings.

A detailed laser alignment report may be customised for each alignment job, including application notes, and any number of reports may be saved in the hand-held computer without the need for special data transfer connections or software.

The standard laser system includes mounting adaptors for shafts from 25mm to 150mm diameter, with short 100mm and long 200mm mounting posts included for different coupling sizes. Optional extension chains allow the laser to be used on shafts up to 450mm diameter or larger. Adaptors for non-rotating shaft alignments are also available.

All Hamar laser systems are linearised through their full measurement range and are factory calibrated.

Standard alignment software features include:
  • Auto Sweep Mode - simply rotate the coupled shafts by any angle to automatically measure shaft alignment.
  • Graphics Zoom Function - allows display graphics to be zoomed in/out to best visualise laser alignment errors
  • Soft Foot Measurement - allows soft-foot to be measured and corrected.
  • Tolerances - selects industry standard alignment tolerances according to rotational speed, with green light "in-tolerance" indication.
  • Jack Shaft and Spacer Shaft Mode - provides alignment data and graphics to suit alignment of a jack-shaft drive.
  • Thermal Growth Compensation - allows target offsets to be entered to offset machine thermal growth values.
  • 2000+ File Storage - provides virtually unlimited laser alignment file storage on the hand held computer controller.
  • Adjustable averaging - allows averaging of laser alignment readings to be increased for difficult light conditions or high vibration levels.
Additional optional features for the S-670 include:
  • Bolt Bound Feature - provides for foot shims and moves to be calculated based on a bound foot situation
  • Vertical Shaft Mode - provides dedicated laser alignment graphics for vertical shaft applications
  • Uncoupled Pass Mode - provides a fast and simple procedure for laser alignment of uncoupled machinery shafts
  • User Defined Tolerances - allow the user to report exactly to engineering specifications
  • Arc Mode - Start and stop auto sweep to take alignment measurements over multiple sectors
  • Train Alignment - allows multiple in-line couplings to be simultaneously aligned
  • Results/History Table - allows up to 5 sets of alignment measurements to be viewed & averaged
  • Machine Templates - allow machine setups with dimensions and laser alignment data to be stored and recalled
