VibrAlign’s Team of 6 dedicated Technical Trainers conducted over 200 “Shaft Alignment Best Practices” Classes across America in 2015.

Our classes were conducted in all types of industry including but not limited to:

  • Food and Beverage
  • Power Generation (fossil fuel, nuclear, & wind)
  • Gas Compression
  • Petro-Chemical
  • Mining
  • Water/Waste Water
  • HVAC (facilities maintenance)
  • Construction/Contracting
  • Various Types of Manufacturing.

We have performed precision shaft alignments on rotating machinery ranging in size from 5 HP to Thousands of HP. So, if you have an alignment question regarding a particular application chances are we have aligned it.

The Technical Training Team can be reached by calling our main office in Richmond, VA at 800.394.3279 or go to our website for a list of the trainers. http://vibralign.com/contact/field/ . If you have questions regarding a training class contact Rick Coad our Training Coordinator @ 800.394.3279, Ext. 119.

So whether you are using dial indicators or a laser alignment system, work in an underground mine, a wind turbine 300 ft. above ground or any place in between please give us call, we are here to help you.

No alignment question is too small to ask and telephone support is always free! So give us a call!

    Hi Team

    I just want to find out where to mount the V-block on the coupling or shaft because am off the opinion when alignment is conducted we align the shaft. There reason am asking this question it because some machine the is no sufficient space between the coupling and shaft. What is the best way to set up the Sensor Display.

    Regards

      Tsholo, you are correct, we are aligning the shaft’s rotational centerlines. On machines that you described it is acceptable to mount the sensor brackets on the coupling hub(s) as long as the hub is secured to the shaft (shrink fit, etc). As both sensor brackets are mounted to a fixed point and the shafts are rotated when taking alignment readings the sensors (or dial indicators) “SEE” the rotational centerlines.

      Thanks for your question.
