It’s a known fact – all rotating machinery is susceptible to misalignment. If you’re still using rulers and dial indicators to ensure your rotating machinery is properly aligned, you could be losing thousands of dollars per year in replacement bearing costs, hours of unnecessary repair time, and crippling unplanned downtime, not to mention taking years off your machine’s useful life. Correctly aligned and regularly controlled machines significantly reduce operating and maintenance costs. Conventional methods for shaft alignment, such as straightedge, thickness gage or dial gage, are very time consuming. The quality of the results also highly depends on the experience of the operator.
Orac Systems` laser alignment devices use unique state-of-the-art technology to ensure maximum precision and user-friendly alignment of shafts.
Precise alignment pays off in many ways:
- Reduce power consumption
- Decrease wear on bearings, seals, shafts and couplings
- Avoid overheating of bearings and couplings
- Reduce vibrations in shafts and foundation bolts
- Significantly reduce damage to shafts and foundation bolts.
Orac Systems is proud to Introduce Shaft Laser Alignment into our existing business portfolio. It will be part of our Reliability technical services department which is backed by experienced personnel who have been involved in laser alignment and Reliability services across various sectors here in Zimbabwe. We have served the Mining, manufacturing, cement manufacturing, Food and Agro processing industries.
We were driven by the need for affordable technical services whilst giving the mine full value of the Laser alignment service.
Orac Systems is proud to be associated with Fixturlaser, the manufacturers of the state of the art Laser alignment equipment which delivers the most accurate and precise measurement values compared to any other system. We have integrated line laser with the sensor and this combination virtually eliminates rough alignment, a huge time saver.
