Shaft Alignment in the Philippines
The importance of Shaft Alignment
Shaft alignment will help to increase the operating life span of rotating machinery. Simply, when machine is aligned the likely to operate within acceptable design limits. Correct shaft alignment ensures the smooth, efficient transmission of power from the motor to the driven equipment. Incorrect alignment occurs when the centerlines of the motor and the driven equipment shafts are not in line with each other.
Misalignment produces excessive vibration, noise, coupling, and bearing temperature increases, and premature bearing, coupling, or shaft failure.
