We understand your operations are 24-hours and so are we. Westgear can mobilise our laser alignment technician within an hour of your call to meet urgent requirements. 

Westgear have the industry experience needed to get you the best results. Our laser alignment expertise extents to various machinery  arrangements including de-watering pumps, motors, gearboxes, turbines, fans, gas compressors and machine trains. You will also receive a comprehensive report with every alignment.

Westgear use Pruftechnik ultra advanced wireless laser alignment equipment. Shims are used to assist in reaching the tolerances for the machinery. Westgear use precision cut, high quality, stainless steel shims that ensure the alignment is safe and accurate. We CAD draw and laser cut special-purpose shims to suit all configurations.

Why laser align?

You have much to gain in both time and money through having your machines aligned to the correct tolerances. Correctly aligned machines reduce the risk of expensive breakdowns and downtime. Typical problems arising from poor machine alignment are:

  • Lost production time
  • Leaking seals
  • Increased vibration levels
  • Higher energy consumption
  • Bearing failure
  • Shaft breakage
  • Coupling wear
  • Quality problems
  • Worse working environment

A lot of money can be saved in industry through continuous maintenance and checking of the machinery. Correct machine geometry guarantees that the manufactured components hold themselves within the tolerances. On the other hand, a faulty machine gives problems with several damaged components, extra time for adjusting faulty components or extended machine time to manufacture surplus.

A machine that is correctly set saves raw materials, means that you can meet delivery schedules and produce more at the same time. It is also easier to plan production if you know that you can rely one hundred percent on your machines. In the final analysis that may be a major competitive advantage for your company.
