An aging workforce means younger people and newer tools tackling alignment issues in our modern rotating machines. With today’s adaptive alignment tools and technology, and some basic fundamentals, even the most complex alignment jobs can be handled by anyone in the plant. There’s no need to rely on just a few experienced mechanics to perform high-precision work. Veteran machinist/millwright David Metz from PRUFTECHNIK shares his expertise on best practices for using next-gen solutions to address misalignment, soft foot, and more.
