Laser Alignment and Vibration Survey

Ceeport Laser Alignment and Vibration Survey

Shaft alignment is the process whereby two or more machines (typically a motor and pump) are positioned such that at the point of power transfer from one shaft to another, the axes of rotation of both shafts should be collinear when the machine is running under normal conditions.

Features and Benefits

  • Quick and effective shaft alignments (9-12-3 alignment method)
  • Automatic measurements when heads are in correct position
  • Automatic reports with customisations (.pdf)
  • Live view
  • Machine library improving alignment workflow


What We Offer?

We Find:

  • Vibration (in shafts and foundation bolts).
  • Heat build-up (in shafts and couplings).
  • Bearing wear.
  • Seal wear.
  • Metal fatigue (in shafts, couplings & foundation bolts).
  • Increased power consumption (as much as 20% on misaligned units).

We Do:

  • Power Generation (alignment of turbine shafts and casings)
  • Marine (alignment of gearboxes to prop shafts, main bearing pockets and stern tube bores)
  • Offshore (Motor shaft alignment, generator alignment)
  • Manufacturing (pump and motor alignment, machine train alignment)
  • Process (alignment of kilns and pump alignment)
  • Oil & Gas (alternator shaft alignment and machine base alignment)
  • Wind Generators (specialized shaft alignment services)

We Help:

  • Prolonged bearing life
  • Reduced stress on couplings/reduced risk of overheating and breakage
  • Reduced wear on seals/prevents contamination and lubricant leakage
  • Reduced friction/reduced energy consumption Reduced noise/reduced vibration
  • Increased machinery productivity
  • Reduced replacement components and machinery downtime costs

With laser alignment tools we will check for three types of misalignments:

  • Parallel misalignments (Offset) Angular misalignments.
  • Combination of the two misalignments.
  • Both of the two main types (parallel and angular) can occur in vertical and horizontal planes.

➢ Parallel (offset) misalignment occurs when the centerlines of the two shafts are parallel but not in the same line. Shafts may be offset horizontally, meaning they’re offset to the left or right; or offset vertically, meaning they’re positioned at different heights.

➢ Angular misalignment occurs when the motor is offset at an angle in relation to the driven equipment. For example, if you were to draw an imaginary line from the centerline of the motor shaft and the centerline of the driven equipment shaft, the two lines would eventually cross rather than run along a common centerline. Angular misalignment can be horizontally or vertically misaligned. This type of misalignment can cause measurable damage to both the motor and driven equipment shafts over time.

➢ Combination misalignment is a combination of misalignment types that occurs when the motor shaft incurs both angular and parallel misalignment.
