Video: Concepts of Shaft Alignment – Backlash

| |

By on February 17, 2014

VibrAlign, Inc. has released a new video entitled “Concepts of Shaft Alignment: Backlash”.  The video describes and depicts how coupling backlash can cause measurement errors and illustrates two guidelines for controlling backlash.

The video series was based on ideas for visualizing alignment created by David Zdrojewski, CEO of VibrAlign.  According to Zdrojewski, “Our research shows us that just about half of all millwrights and mechanics performing shaft alignment have never had any training.  Although VibrAlign has a staff of expert trainers who are on the road almost every week to train shaft alignment, we understand we still can’t reach all the people who need training.  That’s why we have undertaken to create a video series on the concepts of alignment.”
