Fixturlaser AB and Vitech Asia Pacific have launched a new product, Fixturlaser XA, for express shaft alignment.
The Fixturlaser XA is a new product consisting of a colour touch screen handheld display unit and two line laser based transmitter and detector heads. Both of which utilise new technology in hardware and software.
The sensors project a laser formed into a line, making set-up and rough alignment easier. The receiver units also use 30 mm CCD detector elements, a higher accuracy digital technology replacing the commonly used PSDs.
Subsequently, subscribers of the American magazine Plant Engineering voted the Fixturlaser XA as a Product of the Year in the Maintenance Products category last year.
The users’ wish for speed and user friendliness constituted the basis for development of the Fixturlaser XA shaft alignment system. To facilitate alignment of machinery, Fixturlaser AB has developed a new user interface in which Flash-animated colour imagery assists users throughout the alignment process.
This significantly reduces any margin of error and the amount of training required to competently carry out precision alignment. This in combination with the integration of 30 mm CCD technology radically shortens some of the time consuming steps of the alignment process.
Features of the Fixturlaser XA are:
- X-large high resolution colour touch screen
- Automatic registration of measurement points
- Colour animations highlighting operations and results
- Oversized key data
- X-large detector surface
- Thin and compact laser heads
- USB connectivity for reporting
- Pre-mounted fixtures
- Available in wireless version
