VibrAlign Introduces the New Fixturlaser ECO Laser Shaft Alignment Tool Designed to Make Horizontal Alignments Easier and Quicker
The new Fixturlaser ECO mid-range laser shaft alignment system is designed to make horizontal machinery shaft alignments easier and quicker. This is achieved using proprietary firmware: Softcheck™ to control for soft foot, and the Verti-Zontal Compound Move° invented by VibrAlign.
ACOEM AB has introduced a new shaft alignment tool, the Fixturlaser ECO, which features a slim form factor, an adaptive user interface, and proprietary alignment firmware:
- Verti-Zontal Compound Move®, allowing shaft alignments to be performed in just one or two moves,
- Softcheck™ that checks and controls for soft foot, and
- Screen Flip that presents the machine on-screen from the same perspective as the actual machine sitting in front of the aligner.
The Verti-Zontal method, invented by VibrAlign, requires no re-measurements between the vertical and horizontal adjustments. The horizontal adjustment is carried out by the aligner while being guided by real values displayed on-screen.
The Fixturlaser ECO is an all-digital wireless shaft alignment tool with built-in Bluetooth connecting the dual sensors and the display unit. The sensors are each fitted with a 20 mm CCD detector that gives the user a high degree of measurement accuracy and precision, regardless of ambient light.
The display unit itself is compact, fitted with a 4” color screen, and easy to handle in tight spaces. It has a clean, color-coded graphical user interface that guides the maintenance professional through the measurement and alignment process.
The rechargeable batteries allow for 8 hours of continuous use when fully charged. The unit is IP65-certified to withstand harsh environments.
According to David Zdrojewski, CEO of VibrAlign, “The challenge is to make laser shaft alignment tools that are powerful yet easy to use, but also compact enough to fit tight alignment situations. The new mid-range Fixturlaser ECO offers slim laser/detector heads paired with a display unit that looks like a tablet but is designed for heavy industrial use.”
