Understanding Spacer Shaft Alignment

Blog posts   •   May 08, 2018 08:29 GMT

The spacer shaft function is used when the alignment is performed on machinery using a membrane coupling. The membrane coupling is a typical high-performance coupling, with no backlash, used for maintenance free operation. It is also suitable for high speeds or high temperature applications.

Fixturlaser SMC with the unique feature Accurex!

Blog posts   •   Nov 20, 2018 09:08 GMT

The Fixturlaser SMC is a powerful machinery diagnostics tool that requires no vibration expertise. After the user has built their machine in the box, the SMC will diagnose the machine's faults in a matter of seconds utilizing the Accurex automatic diagnosis software.

Dial Indicator Alignment – Bar Sag Still Exists in 2018!

Blog posts   •   Nov 19, 2018 09:00 GMT

Dial indicator bar sag describes a bending of the hardware used to support a dial indicator or other part which spans the coupling. The bending action occurs as a result of gravity and cannot be totally eliminated in almost all cases of alignment.

Know Your Alignment Tolerance

Fixturlaser have done what we will to form the exactness shaft alignment method faster and easier for the user of our tools. To help maintenance personnel throughout alignment a tolerance table “pops up” on the unit screen (of our tools) once getting into dimensions for the machines being aligned. The tolerances square measure supported industry standards.

Compressor Rod Runout with the NXA Runout Probe

The Runout Probe provides a digital linear displacement measurement, much like a dial indicator, but with the added benefit of electronic documentation through the Bluetooth connection with the NXA Display Unit.

Installation Errors – Hold Down & Jacking Bolts

Blog posts   •   Sep 26, 2018 06:06 GMT

Hold down bolts are designed to keep the machine in position after a precision alignment is performed. Jacking bolts are designed to help position a machine during the alignment. Jacking bolts are not designed nor should be used to maintain the position of a machine, that is the job of the hold down bolts. Let’s look at the design intent of each type.

Do You Have Bar Sag?

Blog posts   •   Sep 19, 2018 08:58 GMT

So what is bar/rod sag? Simply put, it is how much the dial indicator mounting bar deflects when the rim dial indicator is install. How much the bar/rod deflects depends upon the type of bar (solid or tube), the length of the bar and weight of the dial indicator.

Welcome to our world of shaft alignment

Since the very beginning in 1984, ACOEM AB has helped industry throughout the world to achieve more profitable and sustainable production. We have reached where we are today by having the courage to think beyond the norm and follow slightly unconventional paths. We have had the courage to make mistakes and find new directions. Through our resolve, ambition and knowledge we have become a global player and a leader in innovative, user-friendly shaft alignment.

Sustainable innovations
During our almost 30 years in the industry, we have drafted, adjusted and experimented more than anyone. Some might say we are incurable innovators whereas others might say that we are highly focused. They probably have a point. If we hadn't been devoted and ambitious, we wouldn't have been the first in the industry to have a touch screen. Nor would we have been pioneers in the use of visible lasers and dual measuring heads.

Over the years, we have learnt to never compromise on quality and we are constantly in search of new, unexplored opportunities by combining advanced technology with design and function. By doing so, we have become the leading innovator in our sector. Not only do we minimize wear, production stoppages and costs, we also help save the environment. Natural resources are in short supply and if we can contribute to a more sustainable world by making it a little bit straighter, we couldn't be happier.
