A misaligned belt can cause all sorts of undesirable issues for business. For starters, it can put a machine you rely on down for the count as you wait for it to be repaired. What’s more, a misaligned machine is like a disease that spreads to other organs, as it can increase the wear and tear and adversely affect pulleys, bearings and other parts of the machine, or cause it to overheat.
What’s more, machines that are properly aligned reduce vibrations and noise levels and make it an overall safer environment for workers. Ultimately, it means less unexpected downtime, less costly repairs and less replacement parts…which means more profit and money for your plant.
Reasons to Use Laser Alignment Technology
So what can plants do to ensure their belts are properly aligned? The best course of action is to invest in laser alignment technology. For starters, laser technology provides much quicker results than using rulers or other traditional methods, which allows you to fix the problem right away and get the machine working properly again. Moreover, rather than someone trying to use the “eye” test, you receive real, quantified, accurate answers. What’s more, it’s easy to learn how to use and interpret data from laser alignment tools, making it a one worker job, allowing other employees to work on other pertinent tasks.
Laser alignment tools provide you with, accurate data to keep your machines and operations running smoothly.
