Machine Laser Alignment

We provide specialist laser alignment equipment and services to all UK industry.

In the past engineers may have traditionally used straight edges, plumb-lines, dial indicators and line of sight to ensure alignment of two or more machines or structures. This has been almost made redundant by new Laser alignment equipment (for both shaft and bore alignment) which utilises laser beam transmitters and receivers to measure alignment within extremely close tolerances.

Industrial Applications for Laser Alignment

Some common uses for Laser alignment include:

  • Alignment of rotating shafts
  • Specialist bore alignment
  • Alignment of main bearing pockets (engines and compressors)
  • Alignment of pumps, gearboxes, motors and other drives
  • Alignment of printing presses
  • Alignment of cardan shafts and offset drives
  • Alignment of drive belts and pulleys
  • Machine positioning
  • Measurement of straightness and flatness of machine tables, rollers and machine guides

Laser Alignment - a Critical Maintenance Measure

Ensuring that rotating machinery is correctly aligned is a critical preventative maintenance measure. Machines that are misaligned, even by very fine amounts, will be subject to increased stresses that lead to breakdowns. Misalignment is one of the biggest causes of bearing failure in mechanical items, and will also contribute to increased wear of mechanical seals, couplings (including flexi-coupling) and motors.
