PRÜFTECHNIK have released the new and improved Shaftalign OS3 redefining this laser shaft alignment kit. The system sets new standards within the shaft alignment entry level segment. The SHAFTALIGN OS3 combines simplicity of operation with precise measurement and state-of- the-art technology. Its back lit colour display and the computer’s built-in display light sensor optimises image quality and device power management.
The system’s intuitive auto-flow capability guides the user progressively to determine the machinery alignment condition. The innovative “Active Clock” measurement mode automatically collects the laser coordinates for the corresponding shaft position. Only 3 to 4 readings over a rotation angle of less than 70° are required to achieve a precision alignment. All relevant alignment results are presented on one screen, including the alignment status evaluation via “Smiley” and LED.
Live Move enables both the horizontal and vertical couplings to be automatically calculated. The screen shows a visual image so you can view the direction the feet need to be adjusted to. When using the Live Move function Shaftalign OS3 continuously measures the corrections, then relays the changes on the screen.
The SHAFTALIGN OS3 system offers a variety of options including generating alignment measurement reports to a simple PDF or by using the Alignment Reliability Center software. ARC is an advanced PC software for preparing, analysing, archiving and printing customised reports.
