Laser Alignment Transcends the “Sixth” Dimension
Measuring and aligning multiple machine trains is time consuming. Thanks to the latest ROTALIGN touch firmware update version 1.3, the duration is reduced by at least 50 percent due to both Multi-coupling measurement and Multi-coupling Live Move. The update also includes Multi-coupling Live Trend for the continuous monitoring of machine dynamics.
With these new capabilities, the simultaneous measurement and alignment of up to 6 couplings can be achieved – all in real time. This enables the maintenance crew time savings of at least 50 percent compared to sequential measurement of all couplings.
The Multi-coupling Live Trend functionality is used to measure and analyze thermal and process-related machine positional changes of the complete machine train during run-up and coast-down phases. The determined values are used to compensate for cold and running alignment conditions.
The update includes dial gauge entry and calculations allowing experienced technicians to quickly compare conventional and laser measurement results.
All familiar features of the ROTALIGN touch such as WiFi connectivity, camera, Move Simulator, and all intelli features are retained.
In parallel, ALIGNMENT RELIABILITY CENTER 4.0 software version 1.3 is being released to support the latest ROTALIGN touch functionalities. The software update is now available on the PRUFTECHNIK website (www.pruftechnik.com) where it can be downloaded free of charge.

A common reason why reliability and maintenance improvement initiatives often do not generate the expected achievable results is competing priorities and focusing on the wrong things.
