DESCRIPTION

The Machinery Alignment training teaches you how to precision align rotating machinery using laser and dial-indicator techniques. Our training provides an understanding of what precision alignment means, and what affects your ability to achieve good results. Our training is based upon understanding and applying the fundamentals of shaft alignment under field conditions. This ensures proficiency in the field under various conditions using various tools, and allows personnel to identify and resolve alignment problems quickly and efficiently.
We teach the following techniques: Straight Edge & Feeler Gauge, Rim/Face & Reverse Dial Indicator, and Lasers. We teach how to plot alignment data & calculate alignment moves for each method. In our Workshops students apply these techniques to real world data, calculating moves for the supplied Alignment Simulator Kit. Case Histories are also presented to review field-based experiences & procedures, along with precautions and typical site expectations. There is also an introduction to using optical measurement techniques to measure thermal growth and machinery movement from ‘Cold’ to ‘Hot’ operating conditions, and how to compensate for this.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is designed for rotating equipment and OEM engineers, precision maintenance technicians, mechanics, supervisors, and managers who are responsible for the operation, maintenance and reliability of rotating equipment.
