Laser Alignment is today’s method of choice for precisely measuring and monitoring all manner of on-site geometry. Compared to traditional optical alignment devices, laser beams can produce measurements whose accuracy is orders of magnitude greater. Where very precise measurement is demanded to maintain engineering integrity, laser beam-based measurement is nowadays all but mandatory. Since laser alignment data is captured in an electronic medium, it can be easily deployed to create computed reports, and a common feature of the instruments supplied by Aquip is a handy upload path, usually by USB or Bluetooth, to the operator’s laptop computer.
Aquip are distributors for the German company PRÜFTECHNIK, makers of a wide range of measurement instrumentation, have developed a comprehensive family of alignment devices. The PRÜFTECHNIK range blends cutting-edge laser technology with traditional German excellence in optics to produce a range of alignment instruments of unmatched accuracy and field robustness.
The range of parameters that can be measured by the PRÜFTECHNIK range includes:
- Bore alignment in reciprocating engines and pumps, turbines, tubes and gearboxes. Our alignment instruments make possible measurements in seconds which traditionally took many minutes, reducing build times, and equipment down time.
- Angular values can be measured with unprecedented accuracy.
- Plumbness and perpendicularity – measure relative and absolute rectilinear vales with unrivalled precision.
- Flatness, levelness and parallelism of foundational surfaces. Make survey measurements in seconds which traditionally have taken minutes or longer.
As with all the equipment supplied by Aquip , because we recognise the widespread need for infrequent, ad hoc measurements, these instruments are generally available both for purchase and for hire by the day, week or month.
To ensure success, Aquip offers a comprehensive training service to instruct our customers’ personnel in the correct use of these products.
