Alignment & Measurement Services

Laser control of shaft geometry

As the only provider world wide we can do alignment control of propeller shaft with use of patented gyro laser technology. This technology enables our engineer to detect any vertical and horizontal misgeometry of the shaft. Fast and accurate measurement of the bending line is one of the main features with this system. Together with our Jack-up system our engineers have the possibility to compare the measured bending curve with the actual load in the bearings. With all necessary tolls in place our engineers have the possibility to carry out a realignment of the shaft lines in a couple of hours. This is very useful if damage occurs with the vessel in a tight schedule.
