Optimizing Your Efficiency With An Easy Laser E540 Shaft Alignment System

Easy Laser E540

Are you getting the most out of your shaft alignment tool?

Given that rotating machinery is prone to misalignment which can lead to a host of problems such as increased power consumption, premature wear and tear of components, excessive noise and vibration, damage to equipment and higher maintenance costs, it makes both operational and financial sense to have a reliable and accurate solution for shaft alignment.

One of the best options for shaft alignment in demanding industrial environments is the Easy-Laser E540.  This powerful tool offers an excellent balance between performance and affordability and comes with a host of features which allow accurate measurement of both horizontal and vertical machinery.   However, despite its impressive capabilities and advanced technology, the system is surprisingly easy to learn and easy to use.

Many operators are put off using measuring equipment that’s complicated and fiddly, especially when several different tools need to be used and manual input is required.  That’s why the Easy Laser E540 is such a popular choice  – operators don’t need any prior experience or knowledge of laser measuring tools and the system has a comprehensive range of built-in features and a range of accessories that make shaft alignment a breeze.

With this tool, there’s no need to stop and re-start because tolerances and compensation values have to be written down and re-entered repeatedly.  The Easy Laser 540 makes it possible to measure and align in three simple steps with all the results generated quickly and seamlessly in a PDF report generated directly from the wireless display unit.

Let’s take a look at how some of the key features of the Easy Laser E540 shaft alignment system enable operations to optimise their efficiencies and reduce costs.

The E540 system includes measurement programs for horizontal machines, vertical machines and alignment of machine trains with three machines. The measuring units are pre-mounted for rapid machine set-up. Start with the measuring units positioned anywhere through 360 ¡ around the shaft, then take any three readings down to 20¡ in-between. Then adjust the machine with the live-values in both horizontal and vertical directions. A PDF report is generated automatically when the measurements are saved.


Suitable for all types of rotating machinery

The Easy Laser E540 covers a range of equipment types including horizontal machines, vertical machines and alignment of machine trains with three machines, making it an extremely economical solution in any industrial operation.

Clever design and advanced technology

The system is remarkably compact and can be easily installed on most types of machines, even those in tight spaces.  The measuring units are pre-mounted for fast set-up and operation and have Bluetooth wireless technology, an integrated rechargeable battery and a large 5 x 7 bright colour display.  TruePSD-technology offers unlimited resolution even from up to 10 metres plus the twin laser beams, dual PSDs and twin inclinometers allow superior control and accuracy in any situation.   Thanks to its robust stainless steel construction and clever design, the system is dust and waterproof to class IP65 and its accuracy isn’t compromised even in the harshest of operating conditions.

Immediate results

The user can see the results immediately on the large display unit, plus the Bluetooth wireless capability allows PDF reports to be generated quickly and easily.  Any issues can be acted on immediately – plus potential problems can be identified through further analysis of results and preventative maintenance undertaken.  Data is saved in the system’s internal memory or can be saved onto a detachable storage device and transferred to other hardware using advanced EasyLink software.

Versatile accessories

To get the most out of your shaft alignment system, you should consider two very useful accessories for the Easy Laser E540.  Here’s how these expandable and adaptable add-ons can really make a difference when it comes to optimising efficiencies:

  • The Vibrometer E285 enables users to check the vibration levels and the condition of the bearings which will prevent premature wear and tear, reduce energy consumption costs, prolong the life of equipment and save maintenance costs.
  • The barcode reader streamlines the whole process by scanning a machine’s unique code and automatically bringing up all the stored dimensions tolerances and compensation values. Measurement can start immediately as operators don’t have to waste time and effort keying in the same information over and over again.

The Easy Laser E540 shaft alignment system combines advanced features and highly accurate measurement capabilities with ease-of-use and affordability, making it a popular choice in a huge variety of industries where rotating machinery is used.
