Shaft alignment made simpler
Bluetooth connection has made Prüftechnik’s Shaftalign system easier to use
Prüftechnik Alignment Systems of Germany has added a wireless version of its Shaftalign system, claimed to be the first wireless alignment system of its type.
The Bluetooth-based module is intended to ease measurement and alignment by eliminayting the risk of cable that could tangle or interfere with the rotation of the shaft. The company says that this saves time and boosts efficiency, without compromising precision or data reliability.
In the standard version, Shaftalign’s auto flow function guides the user step-by-step through measurement and alignment. The ‘active clock’ mode ensures that the angular position of the sensor is automatically taken into account during shaft positioning. The measurement can be started in any position and direction over a rotation of 70°.
