Why Laser Tracker Technology is More Efficient for Aluminum Extrusion Press Alignment

The misalignment of components within an aluminum extrusion press can cause significant issues such as inconsistent die performance, uneven wear, premature failure or excessive wear of dummy blocks, and in extreme cases, damaged and/or broken stems, containers and tie rods. Misalignment in the press not only causes equipment damage and increased downtime, product issues such […]

Location, Location, Location- Establishing Proper Alignment Foundations

One of the most common tasks involving machinery alignment is locating machine components during installation. The erection process of a large or complex machine can be a daunting task. In some cases, the process involves thousands of components that fit perfectly together on the design engineer’s CAD software, but in reality are subject to real […]

Thermal Growth Studies Help Troubleshoot Issues in Turbo Machinery

Large and small machinery is susceptible to the effects of temperature variations due to fundamental properties of materials at the molecular level.  Basically, when various materials change temperature, they change dimensionally.  When the size of the components affected is considerable, the coefficient of thermal expansion of the material is high, and if there is enough […]

Why Level Machines?

What is level? Level is an imaginary plane level to Earth at any particular tangential point on our planet. Due to Earth’s gravity (which is approximately normal to the curvature of the Earth) the level plane can be measured quite easily by several methods. A very crude but effective way to measure level is by […]
