The drive train in different rotating machines in one line is extremely important when an installation is brought back into operation – we have the expertise and equipment to support you here
If you want to avoid increased wear and vibration, when coupling two machines of it is very important for both machines to be exactly in line. Extremely careful alignment is also required with the use of flexible couplings. Incorrect alignment has a negative effect on aspects such as the working life of the bearing (cage breakage), wear of the coupling (rubbers) and seals, higher energy consumption, vibration and noise level, and finally it has an effect on the quality of the product.
Van Meer makes use of high accuracy laser equipment to on the one hand guarantee the alignment of a coupling between electric motor and the driven equipment (pumps), and on the other hand to control straightness (gearbox), flatness (machine installation) and squareness (conveyor belts).
Belt alignment with belt tension gauge
With the alignment of belts the appropriate tension of the belts can be determined using a belt tension gauge.
Professional alignment of the machinery offers the customer certainty with regard to the following aspects:
- Extended working life of bearings
- Reduced coupling wear
- Reduced likelihood of leaking seals
- Lower energy consumption
- Reduced noise nuisance and vibration
- An extended machine working life
