Project Description

Shaft Alignment

Shaft Alignment is an optional Leonova™ function for quick and easy shaft alignment, with either limited or unlimited use. In case of limited use, credits are deducted for each alignment assignment. The function is user friendly and easy to learn.

The LineLazer Accessory Set contains detector/transmitter units, brackets, chains, rods, cables and a measuring tape, all in a carrying case. This set fits a multitude of applications, e.g. compressors, gearboxes, generators, and pumps.

The detector units have position detectors (PSD) with a large reception area, which makes fine tuning unnecessary. Compensation values for thermal growth can be input. Integrated precision inclinometers measure the angle of rotation of both detector units at all times. This allows measurement in fully automatic mode, with much less than a half-turn of the shaft. Measurement results are displayed in 100ths of millimetres or 1000ths of an inch.

The Leonova instrument is the control and display unit. The interaction between the graphical display and the user is kept as simple as possible. A self-explanatory display based on icons and graphics guides the user to make a perfect shaft alignment. Leonova produces a log file with all alignment data for documentation and printing.
