VibrAlign is Out To Realign America
This library of videos, along with a sample of our most recent blog posts, embody our commitment to help industry use its resources more efficiently and effectively. This collection, based on the actual field work of our engineers and trainers, addresses specific issues with laser shaft alignment. As a result of our extensive and ongoing hands-on experience, we have developed a streamlined process for performing precision laser shaft alignment, which we have named "Verti-Zontal". You can learn more about this process and how it can improve productivity in facilities with rotating equipment from the content of this Knowledge Center or by contacting VibrAlign. We invite you to join us in our campaign to Realign America.
Introducing the Fixturlaser NXA Pro
The Fixturlaser NXA Pro laser shaft alignment system from VibrAlign, the most innovative shaft alignment tool ever. The list of industry firsts includes MEMS gyroscopes, new inclinometers, 2nd generation scientific grade CCDs, redesigned power system for the industry's longest operating times plus 1-hour quick-charge. The gyros enable OMNIVIEW, which tracks and displays on-screen the view of the machine being aligned from the aligner's point of view. The gyros also mean that sensor positions and angles will be display even when performing a vertical alignment - no other laser alignment system can do that!
Concepts of Shaft Alignment - The Basics
Shaft alignment of rotating equipment is an essential part of machinery maintenance. This video, the first in a series from VibrAlign -- http://www.VibrAlign.com -- presents the most basic concepts of alignment. Subsequent videos in this series will present alignment measurement and alignment correction concepts.
Dial Indicator Concepts: TIR, Validity Rule & TPS
VibrAlign Trainer Patrick Lawrence guides us through three shaft alignment concepts (Total Indicator Reading, The Validity Rule, and True Position Sensing) with the help of a dial indicator.
Pre-Alignment Steps for Shaft Alignment
VibrAlign shaft alignment Trainer Patrick Lawrence guides us through four Pre-Alignment steps:
- Rough Alignment
- Elimination of Obvious Soft Foot
- Bolt Tightening, and
- Final Soft Foot Check
David Zdrojewski, CEO of VibrAlign, talks about the Realigning America program. To learn more go to http://www.realigningamerica.com. Realigning America is dedicated to the men and women who are responsible for machinery maintenance, the people who keep America running. No matter what method or tool you are using to perform precision shaft alignments, you're invited to sign up for Realigning America. Let's take back manufacturing!
Shaft Alignment Training - Is It Necessary?
Another satisfied shaft alignment training customer. When VibrAlign trains shaft alignment onsite we spend the first day in the classroom, then spend another half day in the facility as the students actually apply what they learned performing alignments. The customer picks the machines to be aligned, and they usually pick the toughest challenges. This class, taught by Trainer Stan Riddle, ran into a bolt-bound motor that was chewing up coupling inserts.
Steve Gordon from VibrAlign -- http://www.vibralign.com -- shows a precision shaft alignment being performed on an Ariel KBB-V6 compressor being driven by a CAT 3416.
