The wireless measurement units, the animated graphical user interface, and the color screen make the Fixturlaser GO Pro a great mid-range alignment tool. In addition, the user interface is adaptive, walking the user through the alignment process by recommending how to proceed depending on the measurement results.
The GO Pro measures the need for horizontal alignment, but its real power is in helping correct misalignment. The dual sensors allow the GO Pro 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 GO Pro also comes with a number of utility software programs to make the alignment process easier. These include Softcheck™ to control for soft foot conditions and Target Values, which automatically adjusts the readings to compensate for pre-determined alignment targets based on thermal growth data.
The same power and ease of use is offered in an application for the alignment of flange mounted machinery.
The Softcheck™ routine helps control for soft foot conditions. The GO Pro allows the user to go directly from Softcheck™ to measuring shaft alignment.
Allows the system to compensate for pre-determined alignment targets. The user can establish targets using this function and then go directly to shaft alignment.
