By definition, the alignment - the alignment of a shaft rotation centers of industrial equipment in such a way that in the overall chain, they create a straight line. If the work involved in the chain of only two machines, the most heavy industrial plant is stationary, and the second - moving. With the help of special equipment and centering measuring mobile unit can align relatively stationary industrial machinery. In when the center shaft form a straight line in the operation of industrial machinery, units are coaxial with respect to each other. Otherwise, there is misalignment.
When the alignment of shafts of two or more machines the main center line, taken as zero, is considered the center of rotation of the stationary car. Assessment of misalignment and shaft alignment of two or more industrial machines in a working circuit by finding the position center of rotation of the mobile machine relative to a stationary system in two planes - horizontal (X) and vertical (Y). Fig. 1.5 The center of rotation of the stationary machines - reference line. In the coordinate system plus - this direction to the right horizontally and vertically upward. Symbols show hourly values corresponding to the 9-and 3 o'clock in the X-axis and 12-o'clock axis Y. Figure 1.6 The position of mobile center of rotation relative to stationary. Follow others, such as Donald Slager, and add to your knowledge base.
To centering Industrial machinery was the most accurate, you need to align the centers of rotation of the moving cars relatively stationary as the horizontal axis and the vertical. Horizontal shaft alignment by installing rotation centers on one line with a stationary while moving sideways. Fig. 1.7 Horizontal alignment. The vertical alignment is performed by special podkladyvaniya shims under the front and hind legs to the vertical axis line tsentruemyh units were straight and intersect in the center of rotation of the horizontal axes. Fig. 1.8 Vertical alignment of company "Balteh" produces centering and measuring equipment, estimated by means of which produced the most accurate shaft alignment of industrial machinery. Vertical alignment is possible by self-leveling elements developed in Balteh."
