Save the company time and money 

There is much to gain in both time and money through having machines aligned to the correct tolerances. An investment in a laser based alignment system such as Easy-Laser® rapidly pays for itself through lower costs for replacement parts, less downtime and smaller electricity bills. A better working environment comes as part of the bargain. Correctly aligned machines reduce the risk of expensive breakdowns and downtime. Typical problems arising from poor machine alignment are:

  • Lost production time
  • Leaking seals
  • Increased vibration levels
  • Higher energy consumption
  • Bearing failure
  • Shaft breakage
  • Coupling wear
  • Quality problems
  • Worse working environment

An environmental contribution

Aligning machines and installations is one of the best investments one can make for the environment. Reduced energy requirements will have an impact on the environment and reduce the need for oil, coal and gas etc. What is perhaps not considered are all the other positive effects of correctly aligned machines.

For each day that the service life of bearings, seals and other wear components can be extended, the manufacture of that spare part is delayed. If over a period - say five years - the use of replacement parts can be halved, the energy consumption required to manufacture those parts will also be reduced roughly by half. The shipping requirement of these “unmanufactured” replacement parts disappears as well, which is also a saving.The consumption of materials is also reduced. Economical on resources in every way.
