 PRECISION ALIGNMENT:   Improve reliability, production and profits with Precision Alignment.   Did you know that poor alignment accounts for almost 50% of vibration problems with rotating machinery? The end result - damaged seals, couplings, bearing failure and increases in power consumption.   The correct alignment of machines is an often overlooked aspect of keeping an operation running trouble free and reliable. Trouble free means you keep online to meet deadlines and quotas in order to stay ahead of the competition. Reliable means you outperform your competitors regarding price and quality. With literally decades of alignment experience, QUALTEX engineers have extensive experience and precision equipment to solve your issues.  

QUALTEX alignment, balancing and mechanical services offer highly effective engineering methods and the latest technologies to help businesses reduce total machine related costs, enhance productivity and strengthen profitability.     Laser shaft alignment When it comes to problems like breakdowns or symptoms like vibration or excessive wear of bearings, seals, couplings or belts, the reason is quite often misalignment.   Precision alignment technology (both rotating and geometrical) is recognized for: a way to lower machine vibration levels reduce energy consumption reduce maintenance costs   For example, a standard 3000rpm direct drive motor/pump requires the alignment to be better than 0.050mm/100mm angular error and 0.050mm parallel offset. Using traditional methods such as dial indicators or straight edges can be very time consuming (even for an experienced operator). Precision laser alignment equipment and precut shims reduce downtime and improve efficiency. The higher the speed, the tighter the alignment accuracy required to ensure smooth operation.  

QUALTEX alignment, balancing and mechanical services use the latest technology to provide a more accurate way of detecting and correcting misalignment.   Accurate shaft alignment can help you: Increase bearing life Reduce stress on couplings and thereby the risk of overheating and breakage Reduce wear on seals, helping to prevent contamination and lubricant leakage Reduce friction and thereby energy consumption Reduce noise and vibration Increase machinery uptime, efficiency and productivity Reduce costs of replacing components and machinery downtime   Laser Belt alignment Most belt/chain arrangements are aligned using trial and error adjustments with a straight edge or string line. Neither of these methods is satisfactory for modern, high-speed precision machinery.

QUALTEX alignment, balancing and mechanical services achieve greater accuracy by placing a laser transmitter on the face of the pulleys being aligned.   The laser beam indicates misalignment in three planes: vertical angular offset horizontal angular offset parallel offset   Once identified, the misalignment can be rectified using standard correction methods.   Accurate belt alignment can help you: Increase bearing life Increase machinery uptime, efficiency and productivity Reduce wear on pulleys and belts Reduce friction and thereby energy consumption Reduce noise and vibration Reduce costs of replacing components and machinery downtime
