World Class Maintenance & Condition Monitoring
What is Shaft Alignment?
Motor Misalignment is the leading cause of machine failure - resulting in premature component wear, plant breakdowns, production downtime and expensive repairs.
Shaft Alignment is of critical importance to Maintenance and Engineering teams who need to ensure that rotating plant machinery, such as motors, pumps and gearboxes, are coupled together in perfect alignment to ensure a perfect rotational centreline is achieved.
If there is misalignment between two machines, such as a motor and pump, then the two shafts will rotate in an eccentric fashion, placing undue stresses on the shafts, coupling, and the units themselves. The result of shaft misalignment is inevitably a plant breakdown, normally due to increased wear rates inflicted upon bearings, mechanical seals and other internal components.
Monition is a specialist Shaft Alignment company providing onsite in-situ Shaft Alignment services and also supplying specialist Laser Shaft Alignment systems.

Shaft Alignment Products
The fastest and safest way of aligning a rotating machine is by using a laser-based Shaft Alignment system. Professional service technicians use systems such as the Fixturlaser XA and GO systems to perform alignment measurements and corrections in the field.
Fixturlaser systems are characterised by their:
- easy-to-operate icon interface (minimal training required)
- precision measurement of alignment to fine tolerances
- unique line-laser technology which eliminates the need to perform rough-alignment
- Bluetooth wireless connectivity of laser transmitters / receivers (XA System)
- Full-Colour LCD Touch screen (XA System)
