The most costly pitfalls in laser shaft alignment

Maintenance teams know these pitfalls. Coupling backlash, where manual positioning of the coupling is needed during a measurement rotation. Uncoupled machines, where laser and sensor heads must be separately and manually positioned on a machine, leading to possible errors and rework. Repeated moves and measurements just to get an accurate alignment result. In this webinar, Jonathan Gough, PRUFTECHNIK product manager for Fluke Reliability, discusses these and other pitfalls that drive up the cost and extend the time it takes to complete alignment jobs. He will explain how Adaptive Alignment systems overcome these drawbacks and deliver new levels of speed and precision in laser shaft alignment.
