For correct installation and alignment of propulsion drive lines.
With Easy-Laser XT770 you can perform shaft and coupling alignment of horizontal and vertically/flange mounted machinery, align machine trains, measure twist of foundation, check soft foot, bearing clearance, and more.
Alignment of the propeller shaft and the main machine or gearbox is carried out with the measuring units mounted on either side of the coupling. The mounting brackets included with the system are very versatile, which means all different kind of machine types can be measured with ease. Also uncoupled shafts (coupling removed) can be measured thanks to the built-in precision inclinometers. The measurement programs can measure with just small rotational angles down to 40° if it is difficult to rotate the shaft, or if pipe connections or other hull components are in the way. The results of the measurement show how to shim and adjust the motor/gearbox to get the drive line straight. The alignment is made with live values. You can then easily create and share a PDF report containing all measurement data and images.
XT770 supplies the same high-quality alignment results regardless of whether the vessel is at the quay, in the dock or in motion (where the work is sometimes affected by the vessel’s movements in the water).
Use the rugged Easy-Laser XT11 display unit, or install the free XT Alignment app on your iOS or Android devices. The intuitive user interface guides you through the measurement process. The XT11 display unit has a 13MP camera. You can also get it with a built-in IR camera (optional). The display unit and the measuring units are all IP66/67 approved, for use in harsh environments.
