Motor Misalignment is the leading cause of machine failure - resulting in premature component wear, plant breakdowns, production downtime and expensive repairs.
Shaft Alignment is of critical importance to Maintenance and Engineering teams who need to ensure that rotating plant machinery, such as motors, pumps and gearboxes, are coupled together in perfect alignment to ensure a perfect rotational centreline is achieved.
If there is misalignment between two machines, such as a motor and pump, then the two shafts will rotate in an eccentric fashion, placing undue stresses on the shafts, coupling, and the units themselves. The result of shaft misalignment is inevitably a plant breakdown, normally due to increased wear rates inflicted upon bearings, mechanical seals and other internal components.
Monition is a specialist Shaft Alignment company providing onsite in-situ Shaft Alignment services and also supplying specialist Laser Shaft Alignment systems.
Monition’s on-site Shaft Alignment service will help you get rotating machinery operating within manufacturers’ tolerances, in no time - giving you the confidence that equipment is correctly installed and running smoothly. Monition provides ISO accredited onsite services, across the UK, with all Engineers Safety-Contractor registered.
The fastest and safest way of aligning a rotating machine is by using a laser-based Shaft Alignment system. Professional service technicians use systems to perform alignment measurements and corrections in the field.
