Laser Shaft Alignment Services

Bearing life can be extended exponentially by proper precision shaft alignments. L10 bearing life formula

L10 = bearing lifetime in million turns

C = a constant that depends on the bearing type

P = bearing load as the sum of radial + axial forces

Doubling the force reduces bearing life to 1/8th, 3 times the forces reduces service life to 1/27th of the original lifetime.

In addition to balancing, we pay close attention to shaft alignments.

Precision laser shaft alignments are a major factor for increasing long term reliability, reducing maintenance costs and reducing downtime.

Laser Alignment Benefits:

  • Exponentially longer service life.
  • Reduced power consumption.
  • Reduced coupling wear.
  • Reduced machine vibration.
  • Reduced noise.
  • Increased reliability means it saves you money!
