The Fixturlaser ECO Wind is custom-made with firmware and fixtures designed specifically for GE, Mitsubishi, Siemens and Vestas turbines. These precisely designed fixtures make generator-to-gearbox alignment easy inside any nacelle – safeguarding reliability and optimizing the energy efficiency of the wind turbine.
Fixturlaser shaft alignment tools offer the wind power industry:
The Machine Defined Data function allows the user to create configuration templates for all kinds of manufacturing models, where data like distances, target values, and tolerances can be saved. This function is particularly useful for service organizations that maintain several turbine models.
The ECO Wind measures the need for horizontal alignment, but its real power is in helping correct misalignment. The dual sensors allow the ECO Wind to maintain the true position of the shafts, even as unintended movements are experienced during the alignment process. The benefit of this “true position sensing” is that it allows the user to complete the alignment using a Verti-Zontal™ move, adjusting in both the vertical and horizontal planes without re-measuring between moves. A Verti-Zontal™ alignment is a great time saver since alignments can usually be completed in just one or two tries.
The Softcheck™ routine helps control for soft foot conditions. The ECO Wind allows the user to go directly from Softcheck™ to measuring shaft alignment.
We have a wide range of fixture applications. The fixtures have a solid design and are easy to mount. While originally designed for a specific manufacturer’s turbine, the fixtures will fit on most wind power turbines in the market place.
