The incorrect alignment of equipment can cause premature failure leading to damage, downtime and loss of production, all of which are costly in addition to the repair itself.
The correct alignment of equipment from day one in conjunction with other best practices, will ensure your equipment has the best possible chance of staying operational and efficient for as long as possible. Machine components are typically coincident, parallel or perpendicular, according to design requirements during operation. Any deviation from this can cause equipment malfunction or failure.
AVT Reliability can help ensure alignment and ongoing reassurance of this by providing condition based maintenance consultancy and training for your staff, helping to prevent any issues or failures leading to equipment downtime. AVT’s reliability engineers are on hand to help ensure your equipment is aligned or be able to identify when it needs to be adjusted.
The quick identification of misalignment in your equipment means that the issues can be sorted out before any costly damage is done.
