Shaft Laser Alignment

Measurement and alignment the easy way

Easy-Laser® is the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of laser based measurement and alignment systems. We develop straightforward products made to quickly and accurately perform measurements and align machines for assignments in all types of industry.

Shaft alignment for all rotating machinery

There is an Easy-Laser® shaft alignment system for every situation and industry, from the most simple to the most advanced, and for use in potentially explosive environments. All systems are designed to be easy to mount on the machines. Vital components are made of aluminium and stainless steel to guarantee reliable measurement values and the highest reliability in even the toughest of environments.

Easy-Laser® XT770 – Shaft alignment and geo applications

The complete alignment system

Easy-Laser® XT770 Shaft is the most powerful of our Generation XT alignment systems. The 360° Live feature gives you even more possibilities to perform advanced adjustments. With XT770 you can carry out the following:

  • Align the machine
  • ​Check base twist
  • Check bearing play
  • Check soft foot
  • Measure machine movement over time
  • Document and share the results

With Easy-Laser XT770 you can perform shaft alignment of horizontal and vertically/flange mounted machines, but also align machine trains, measure twist of foundation, soft foot, bearing clearance, and more. The EasyTrend program allows you to keep track of machine movement over time. That is useful when checking for thermal expansion and pipe strain issues for example.

2 axis PSDs (position sensitive detectors) permit adjustment of your machine both vertically and horizontally at the same time, with measuring units in any position. We call it 360° Live adjustment. With the XT770 you have a choice of several different measurement methods, e.g. continuous sweep and multipoint. This gives you the flexibility you need to achieve the perfect measurement result.

Easy-Laser XT measuring units and display unit are shockproof and rated both IP66 and IP67 water and dust proof. Along with long operating times, this guarantees you will be able to take on and finish even the toughest jobs. 

User-friendly

Use the rugged Easy-Laser XT11 display unit, or install the free XT Alignment app on your iOS or Android device*. The intuitive user interface guides you through the measurement process.

Unique documentation possibilities 

The XT11 display unit has a 13MP camera. You can also get the XT11 display unit with a built-in IR camera.** This means you can add a thermal image of the machine before and after alignment. You can easily create and share a PDF report containing all measurement data and images.

Geometric measurements kit

With the Geo kit added to your XT770, using the Values program, you will be able to take flatness and straightness measurements with the highest reliability and precision. The kit includes the very versatile and long proven laser transmitter D22 plus geo brackets.

Wireless and digital tool for alignment of sheaves/​pulleys

When aligning with the Easy-Laser® XT190 BTA you reduce the wear on sheaves/pulleys, belts, bearings and seals, and you also get lower noise and vibration levels. The accuracy of the digital readout means that you can align within prescribed tolerances and rely on the result. Especially transmissions with two or more belts, or wide belts, are highly affected by misalignment, causing large differences in belt tensions and also increased wear and tear on edges.

The Easy-Laser® XT190 allows even more accurate and efficient alignment of sheaves/pulleys, and is unique to the market in being able to offer digital read off. 

The transmitter generates a laser plane parallel to the reference sheave. The detector reads the position in relation to the laser plane and provides a live digital display of both offset and angular value. This makes the alignment of the adjustable machine very simple. The accuracy of the digital readout also means that you can align within prescribed tolerances and rely on the result. 

Many read-out options

Follow the adjustment on the integrated OLED display, in the free XT Alignment app on your phone or tablet, or on a separate Easy-Laser display unit*. The machine’s shim and adjustment values are automatically calculated. It is also possible to read off visually on targets (included).

With the XT11 display unit or mobile device, it is easy to save the data and create a PDF report.

Accurate and easy to use

Compared with old methods such as rulers, the alignment is more accurate and efficient when both horizontal and vertical adjustment is carried out at the same time. In addition, the work can be performed by one person alone, in a significantly shorter time. 

Fits all types of sheaves/pulleys

The XT190 is mounted on the sheave/pulley using super magnets. It can be used on all types of sheaves/pulleys, such as v-belt, timing belt, flat belt and chain drives. If you have aluminium sheaves/pulleys, the low weight of the tool means that it can be attached using strong double-sided tape.
