SHAFT ALIGNMENT

Here's What We Do Better

SHAFT ALIGNMENT PROCESS

ACQUIP offers a comprehensive laser shaft alignment that is proven to eliminate the most common cause of machine vibration.

Reduced energy consumption

Significant power savings can be made through accurate alignment. Precise alignment eliminates reaction forces and reduces energy consumption by up to 10%.

ACQUIP offers a comprehensive laser shaft alignment that is proven to eliminate the most common cause of machine vibration, making it the most effective method for coupling alignment. Proper coupling alignment increases mean time between failures, bearing and seal life, and decreases power loss.

 

Taking advantage of the most advanced and precise laser alignment equipment in the market, ACQUIP can quickly improve the running condition and dependability of your machines. Shaft alignment is one of the mission critical components for optimum performance.

 

Several companies are still applying old methods that increase the chance of error and take a long time in order to perform these procedures on large rotating machinery. However, using this type of equipment can set drawbacks during your downtime. For instance, a dial indicator alignment requires a mechanical set up and can contribute to inaccuracies due to any user interpritation and math calculations. Unlike conventional methods, the laser shaft alignment performed can provide faster, easier, and more accurate results. The laser beam does not sag and can constitute a precise and uniform reference on all sorts of procedures such as motor shaft, motor coupling and bearing alignment. Our standard shaft alignment methods have demonstrated to be reliable and deliver optimal implementation on all types of industrial machines.

…Once you employ this process into all shaft alignments, the average time spent on shaft alignment will go down and the quality of the laser shaft alignment will go up.

Performing a correct shaft alignment procedure saves time and money. Misalignment is the most common cause of machine vibration. Understanding and practicing the fundamentals of shaft alignment is the first step in reducing unnecessary vibration, reducing maintenance costs, and increasing machine uptime.

 

Every shaft alignment should be performed from start to finish using the same fundamental process. Once you employ this process into all shaft alignments, the average time spent on shaft alignment will go down and the quality of the laser shaft alignment will go up.

Working with ACQUIP on the job we had in Italy recently was the best experience I have had in this type situation. ACQUIP was very professional and the response time far exceeded my expectations. The rental equipment was in top shape and made it possible for us to take care of our customer in an emergency situation. We will look forward to doing business with you in the future. Thank you for your hard work.

ACQUIP’s engineers performed a great job for Siemens Energy . The Fluid Drive and Gearbox and Pump were all included in the task. Each component was aligned to “all” of Siemens procedures and specifications requested. The Siemens customer was very satisfied with the results of the alignment and process.

First I would like to thank you for your help. We need a piece of alignment equipment on site last minute do to a break down. ACQUIP responded to your request immediately, recommend the right tool for the job, and had the tool on site by 8:30 AM the following morning. Just outstanding customer service and support from the entire ACQUIP team.

ACQUIP was the best choice to rent the Laser Tracker. It speeded up the process! I will definitely come back on our next set of fixtures!

I highly recommend ACQUIP for executing both Tops on/Tops off and Tops off Steam path alignments.
