Alignment Measurement

What is Alignment Measurement?

The measurement of alignment in an industrial context refers to the measurement and adjustment of two or more coupled shafts in rotating plant machinery, such as the shafts of a motor driving a pump or gearbox. When measuring alignment in rotating shafts, the objective is to align both shafts along the rotational centreline.

Laser Shaft Alignment Products

TMonition products are widely regarded as the most technologically advanced, yet user-capable, Laser Shaft Alignment Systems available today.

Easy to use for Express Alignment in the field

The Monition is characterised by its easy-to-use interface - equally beneficial for alignment professionals using the equipment on a regular basis, and for maintenance technicians conducting periodic alignment checks.

Our Laser Shaft Alignment system features a colour LCD touchscreen, with on-screen icons and animated display which guides users through the alignment process.

The Monition system utilises CCD digital laser technology, which does not suffer from interference problems in the field, such as bright sunlight, which affect the traditional optical laser systems used by other manufacturer's systems.

Additionally, our shaft alignment tools utilises a line laser (instead of a dot-laser) and a 30mm laser detector in each laser receiver, practically eliminating the need to conduct rough alignment checks.

Pre-assembled fixtures enable the lasers to be attached to the application in seconds, and Bluetooth connectivity eliminates the need for cables from the laser units to the display unit.

The Monition laser shaft alignment system features an Express mode which automatically samples alignment data once the system is set-up. The net result - Alignment measurements can be quickly and easily conducted in the field in under 5 minutes from opening the lid of the case!
