New firmware for ROTALIGN touch

Published by
World Cement,

The cloud-based shaft alignment system, ROTALIGN touch, has moved forward. Its latest firmware release, 1.2, adds shaft application capabilities, like the cardan shaft, vertical machine alignment with vertiSWEEP, Softfoot diagnostics and Move Simulator.

Cardan shaft alignment with specially designed brackets and patented measuring method, allows cardan shafts to be aligned without removing the shaft, which significantly reduces the alignment time, effort and cost.

Vertical machine measurement with ROTALIGN touch is now as easy as horizontal alignment, thanks to vertiSWEEP, the new continuous vertical measurement mode: just rotate the shaft to measure flange-mounted vertical machines. Soft foot diagnostics assists the user in identifying the possible causes of machine soft foot. Last but not least, the ROTALIGN touch new Move Simulator capability enables the shim values to be predefined in advance of the physical movement of the machine.

The intelligent measurement capabilities and mobile connectivity features of the ROTALIGN touch paired with the ALIGNMENT RELIABILITY CENTER 4.0 software produce a valuable data stream that details all aspects of machine alignment condition.
