Easy-Laser XT550 Laser Shaft Alignment System Receives Innovation Award
Easy-Laser XT550 laser shaft alignment system has been voted best Technical Innovation at the HazardEx Awards for Excellence. The award is given to the most innovative product or system for use in hazardous area environments.
The Easy-Laser XT550 is the world’s first Ex/ATEX approved laser shaft alignment system for use with third party tablets and smartphones running iOS and Android. This means the technician can use the same display device for more type of work in his business, lowering the investment cost a lot. It also means that a company can have both Ex/ATEX approved alignment systems and those which are not, but just learn one software. This not only saves a lot of training time but will also make the work easier for the operator.
As Finnish energy company Fortum digitalises its operations, new alternatives are also being actively pursued in the detection of leaks in the district heating network. In a pilot project launched in partnership with Advian Oy, the location data of the existing district heating network is being combined with satellite data to detect possible leaks.
As the required time-to-market for industrial products becomes ever more aggressive, so does the need to keep machinery and other assets working efficiently. Alongside this is the equally urgent requirement to reduce the cost of maintenance and speed-up time-sensitive repairs.
