Positional ChangeROTALIGN TOUCH LIVE TREND

ROTALIGN Touch is the first cloud-enabled touchscreen laser shaft alignment system with integrated mobile connectivity.

Live Trend  monitors machine displacement during operation including run-up and coast-down.

This allows determining the positional change of a machine, or the relative positional change of coupled machines over time, and relating it to process-related or external parameters or events.

With Live Trend, you can precisely determine the real thermal growth compensation values. The ‘cold’ alignment targets recommended by manufacturers do not reflect the actual operating condition of a running machine. After startup, machines change their initial position as a result of dynamic loads. Therefore good alignment when the machine is cold is not necessarily the best alignment when the machine is running. In order to achieve the perfect alignment when the machine is up, compensation values have to be determined, thus allowing for a misalignment when the machine is cold.

  • Coupled machines where shaft alignment may be affected by thermal growth or dynamic movement
  • Tablet-like capacitive touchscreen with 3D display
  • Extremely durable with strengthened glass screen and tough housing
  • Inbuilt mobile connectivity: RFID, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and camera
  • Monitor relative machine positional changes with Multi-Coupling Live Trend
