What we Do

Laser Alignment

Westgear provides laser alignment services for rotating shaft alignment and Geometric measurement. Our experienced technicians laser align your machinery to the OEM prescribed specifications for operating efficiency and reliability of your equipment. Correct, accurate alignment allows you to protect your machinery from needless wear and tear. The consequences of incorrectly aligned shafts in rotating machinery can be severe and include costly unscheduled downtime, loss of production, increased energy consumption, overheating, vibration, premature wear and tear and increased maintenance or replacement costs. Contact us for advice on laser alignment services.

Belt Alignment

If you want to save on energy costs, minimise vibration, eliminate costly belt replacements and reduce wear on pulleys, belts, bearings and seals, we have the laser alignment tools to enable professional and precise belt alignment. Laser alignment means you can quickly and effortlessly align sheaves and pulleys with laser precision to extend the service life of your belts, improve efficiencies, reduce your maintenance costs and save on electricity.

Geometric Measurement

Geometric measurement is widely used to maintain the engineering integrity of equipment and we utilise the world-class geometric measurement solution Easy Laser E720 that combine simplicity and efficiency. Our Easy Laser E720 device quickly and accurately measure straightness, flatness, square, parallel, cone, level and plumb on a vast number of applications including machine tool spindles, slew bearings, flange faces, precision machines surfaces, conveyors, trunnion bearing plinths, turbines and machine base plates.
