What is optical alignment and what can it do for you?

 


Optical alignment of machinery is done by using two types of instruments: a sight level and transits. The sight level is used to give the differences in vertical elevation of a component in relation to the level of the earth. The transits on the other hand will give the differences in horizontal placement of a component in relation to a theoretical centerline. Both of
these precise instruments are use to set machine components to tight tolerances. MASI's alignment teams align rolls and components to within .001" per linear foot of the component or the requisite tolerances for presses and calenders.



What will you notice after precision alignment? Some of the many benefits are:

* Improved web caliper and moisture profile
* Improved web tracking
* Improved wire and felt tracking
* Reduced vibration
* Decreased wear on main components and peripherals
* Reduced power consumption
* Increased machine speed increase, etc.

Overall you will achieve better runnability and higher efficiency on your machine
