Machine Shaft Alignment – GTI AlignProLidin
Misalignment is one of the top conditions that leads to machine failure. Misalignment occurs when the center lines of two rotating shafts are not co-linear. Misalignment destroys bearings, seals, couplings, rotors and shafts.
Misalignment of the driving and driven shaft in a machine adds stress forces to the shaft, which are transferred through the shaft to the bearings, seals, etc. These forces work against all of these components to reduce the productive life of the machine.
Misalignment will also create high levels of vibration and friction. This can result in excess heat that can reduce the effectiveness of the lubricant. Excess vibration will result in shorter machine life and, in some cases, poor product quality resulting in scrap and waste.
GTI AlignPro is a rugged, reliable and repeatable shaft alignment solution. Designed to operate on the iPad platform, this new offering from GTI Predictive Technology is the perfect addition to any VibePro or reliability maintenance program.
