Fixturlaser NXA Pro Laser Shaft Alignment System Wins Plant Engineering Magazine's Product of the Year 2013 Award

Fixturlaser is proud to announce that the new Fixturlaser NXA Pro has received the 2013 Bronze Product of the Year award in the Maintenance Tools Equipment category. This laser alignment system features many innovations in shaft alignment, including the first use of gyroscopes, improved power management with extended battery life, a new display unit with a 6.5 inch touch screen with video game style realistic graphics, and includes a completely redesigned set of super slim transmitter/detectors.

The Fixturlaser NXA Pro has been named the Bronze Product of the Year 2013 in the Maintenance Tools and Equipment category. The Fixturlaser NXA Pro won out over other nominees based on voting by readers of Plant Engineering magazine. Fixturlaser and VibrAlign have previously won Product of the Year Gold awards in 1992 (CombiLaser) and in 1998 (Colibri), a Silver award in 2008 (Fixturlaser GO), a Bronze award in 2006 (Fixturlaser XA), as well as being nominated as a Finalist for the Fixturlaser UPADXA in 2010.

Hans Svensson, Fixturlaser CEO, said of the nomination, “The award reflects the years of planning and development that went into the Fixturlaser NXA Pro, and showcases Fixturlaser’s innovative design and manufacturing capabilities.”

The new Fixturlaser NXA Pro was designed to give alignment practitioners greater ease of use, long battery life to get them through the work day, and a screen display that can change in real time to always show the machine being aligned from the same viewing angle as seen by the operator. No other laser alignment system on the market can do this.

Plant Engineering Magazine organizes the annual Product of the Year competition to recognize the best new industrial products available in the United States. For more than a quarter-century, Plant Engineering’s readers have selected the outstanding new products that help them do their jobs smarter, safer, more efficiently and more productively.
