Alignment control of the propeller shaft is done using Wärtsilä´s patented gyro laser technology. The technology enables fast and accurate measurement of the bending line, allowing the detection of any vertical or horizontal misalignment. Used in combination with a jack-up system, it allows the engineer to compare the measured bending curve with the actual load in the bearings. With the necessary tools in place, realignment of shaft lines can be carried out in a couple of hours.
The Wärtsilä Alignment and measurement services are suitable for both new and existing operational equipment. Measurement and repair solutions are offered for:
