Rotating equipment will not be reliable if the alignment between the driving and driven shaft centerlines does not form a straight line. Misalignment causes up to 50% of machinery vibrations and should not be underestimated. Investing in alignment can prove to be extremely beneficial for maintenance budgets, often, with an immediate and noticeable ROI.
- Excessive wear on mechanical components
- Premature breakdown of equipment
- Costly downtime
- Bearing & seal damage
- Shaft bends
- Unbalance of rotating components
- Machinery soft-foot conditions
Using laser, optical, 3D geometric survey measurements or strain gage technologies, alignment extends the life of machinery and markedly improves its performance.
Alignments performed by AME's Service Technicians and Engineers greatly improve the productivity of machinery by increasing efficiency and preventing premature failure and a costly downtime.

3D GEOMETRIC SURVEY MEASUREMENTS/FARO LASER
The Faro laser tracker allows us to perform precision geometric surveying and in-situ 3-dimensional measurements. The laser will enable us to provide quick, precise measurements of flatness, straightness, perpendicularity, concentricity, etc. It also provides live feedback for corrections.
