ISMANING – January 27, 2017
The revolutionary ROTALIGN® touch, the cloud-based shaft alignment system that combines precision measurement with mobile connectivity, has with the latest free firmware release 1.2 taken another leap forward. Adding new shaft application capabilities like the Cardan shaft, vertical machine alignment with vertiSWEEP, Softfoot diagnostics and Move simulator functionality, the ROTALIGN® touch now truly does it all.
Cardan shaft alignment with specially designed brackets and patented measuring method, allows cardan shafts to be aligned without removing the shaft which significantly reduces the alignment time, effort and cost.
ROTALIGN® touch with vertical machine measurement is now as easy as horizontal alignment thanks to vertiSWEEP, the new continuous vertical measurement mode; just rotate the shaft to measure flange-mounted vertical machines. Softfoot diagnostics assists the user in identifying the possible causes of machine softfoot. Last but not least, the ROTALIGN® touch new Move simulator capability enables the shim values to be predefined in advance of the physical movement of the machine.
The intelligent measurement capabilities and mobile connectivity features of the ROTALIGN® touch paired with the ALIGNMENT RELIABILITY CENTER®4.0 software produce a valuable data stream that details all aspects of machine alignment condition.
With its new features, such as Cardan shaft alignment and vertiSWEEP the ROTALIGN® touch shaft alignment system is the cornerstone of any plant management and reliability program where precision meets connectivity.
