Easy-Laser E710 - Shaft alignment

The Easy-Laser® E710 system ensures that machines have optimal conditions for problem-free operation, without risk of unplanned downtime.

Easy-Laser® E710 is an alignment system that is complete in its full meaning. It does not just give you all the functions for shaft alignment, it also gives the opportunity to check the machine base and any bearing play using the standard equipment.

Programs for horizontal machines, soft foot checks, machine trains, vertical/flange mounted, and cardan/offset-mounted machines are included. Furthermore, programs for straightness, flatness/twist, and parallelism measurement are included. Using accessories you can also align sheaves/pulleys with digital precision and check vibration levels. Large, clear color screen, wireless measuring units (included as standard), long operating life, and robust design give a measurement system that is both reliable and easy to use.

Easy to use = fast and efficient

When we talk about simplicity we mean several things, for example, simple to place or mount the measurement equipment on the measurement object, easy to perform the measurement, and easy to interpret the measurement result. With Easy-Laser® E710 you can measure all types of rotating machinery, large and small, equally well, regardless of shaft diameter.

Wireless measuring units (laser/detector) enable you to work more freely. The measurement values can be registered with only 40° rotation of the shafts. You can then align it ”live” using the measuring units in any position around the shaft. The programs guide you step-by-step through the measuring procedure for the perfect measuring result.

Measurement programs

The featured programs below are the most commonly used with this system. Please click here for a complete overview of the possibilities.
*=accessories needed

Horizontal machines

Horizontally mounted machines often consist of a pump and a motor, but can also include other types of machines such as gearboxes and compressors. Regardless of the machine type, it is easy to measure and align with Easy-Laser®. The measuring units (M and S) are easily mounted on each side of the coupling and communicate with the display unit wireless. Then follow the step-by-step instructions on the screen.

Vertical/flange-mounted machines

This program is used for the alignment of vertical and flange-mounted machines, e.g. pumps, motors, gearboxes. Shows center offset, angular error, and shim value at each bolt.

Machine train

Regardless of what machines you have and in which order they were assembled, you can build your own machine train with theoretically as many machines as you like. You can pick the reference machine manually, or let the program choose one that will minimize the need for adjustments.

Cardan/offset-mounted machines*

Alignment of cardan/offset-mounted machines. (Accessory Cardan fixture, Part No. 12-0615 is required.)

Soft foot check

Alignment work begins with a soft foot check. The soft foot check ensures that the machine is resting evenly on all its feet by indicating which foot/feet should be adjusted. That is an important part of securing a reliable alignment. After the soft foot check is complete, you can go directly to the alignment program with all of the machine’s distance values saved.

Twist measurement

The twist measurement program allows you to check the flatness or twist of the machine foundation using only the measuring units in the system.

Values – digital dial indicator

The Values program can be used e.g., when one wants to measure as with dial gauges and to check bearing play or shaft load. With the standard equipment and completely normal set up on the machine!

Straightness measurement

With our program for measuring straightness, you can easily measure long shafts, rolls, bearings, bases, machine structures, etc. All you have to do is define a number of measuring points, in advance or while measuring. You will be able to get the result for both the horizontal and vertical alignment, graphically as well as digitally. To get even more out of your system, add the D22 swiveling laser.

Flatness measurement

Program to measure flatness/twist of (for example) machine bases, machine tables, etc. With advanced "best-fit" calculations.

Belt alignment*

Using the system you can align sheaves and pulleys with digital precision. Adjustment of the machines is displayed in real-time on the screen, with readings for angle and axial displacement in both the vertical and horizontal axes, as well as an adjustment value for the front or rear foot pair. The result can be documented as normal. (Requires the XT190 BTA accessory.)
