Shaft Alignment - Laser Systems
Shaft Alignment – Laser Systems
3 day seminar is appropriate for those who align machines, those
who detect, investigate and resolve premature machinery failure
due to misalignment, as well as those who direct activities related
to alignment and machine reliability.
course focuses on specific procedures for using today’s
laser alignment systems and the fundamental concepts and skills
required to perform precision alignment. This unique approach
provides not only an understanding of the specific procedures
to follow for the laser system being used, but also builds the
foundation required to understand how and why the system works
the way it does.
Up to 50% of this seminar consists of guided hands-on activities,
so it is requested that participants bring their instrument to
overall course objective is to align two coupled rotating machinery
shafts to specified tolerances using a laser alignment system,
including proper planning, rough and precision alignment processes,
per approved procedures.

functions involve alignment of rotating machinery.
learn to set-up laser system components, obtain a valid
set of alignment measurements, interpret measurements,
and make adjustments using the move monitoring functions
of the laser system.
familiarity with using today’s Laser Alignment instruments
is beneficial and a variety of such instruments will be
demonstrated during interactive class exercises.
prerequisite Laser Alignment experience is required prior
to taking the class.
prior experience in vibration analysis or condition monitoring
purpose of this seminar is to introduce the student to
these Laser Alignment techniques.
math skills and the ability to use and interpret graphs
and tabular information will be beneficial in order to
