Firmware adds capabilities to this shaft-alignment system

The Rotalign touch (photo) is a cloud-based shaft-alignment system that combines precision measurement with mobile connectivity. The latest free firmware release for the system — version 1.2 — now adds shaft-application capabilities. Cardan shaft alignment with specially designed brackets and a patented measuring method allows Cardan shafts to be aligned without removing the shaft, which significantly reduces the alignment time, effort and cost, says the company. Vertical machine measurement with Rotalign touch is now as easy as horizontal alignment, thanks to vertiSweep, the new continuous vertical-measurement mode: just rotate the shaft to measure flange-mounted vertical machines. Soft-foot diagnostics assist the user in identifying the possible causes of machine soft foot. The new Move Simulator capability enables the shim values to be predefined in advance of the physical movement of the machine. — Prüftechnik Dieter Busch AG, Ismaning, Germany
