Easy-Laser Belt Alignment – A Quantifiable Solution
Modern technology is so advanced that anyone with decent alignment equipment can get a straight measurement. However, what sets the Easy-Laser XT190 apart from other machinery is not only the company’s promise to deliver increased productivity and the saving of resources but the product’s ability to accurately measure, align and report both the pre and post alignment conditions of a v-belt drive.
Some may think this unnecessary, however this precision is of particular importance to James Walker, of Walkers Auto Electrics. James must ensure the multiple v-belt drives on new buses are accurately aligned and tensioned to ensure optimum v-belt life, smooth and quiet operation, and that the correct loads are applied to the rotating components.
The Easy-Laser XT190 combines the latest technology and accessibility by connecting to the Easy-Laser XT app which is compatible with Android and iOS devices. This allows the user to make live misalignment corrections and easily report the results in the onboard reporting template. The ‘live mode’ allows the alignment corrections to be made while seeing the results on the screen as the pulleys are moved into alignment, reducing downtime and ensuring accuracy.
Another reason why Walkers Auto Electrics chooses Easy-Laser, James says, is the ability to allow for differing pulley face widths in the program. For example, the air-conditioning compressor clutch pulley is wider than the harmonic balancer on the engine. The Easy-Laser software is able to calculate the difference between the two and incorporate these readings into the alignment procedure so the technician doesn’t have to. This ensures the centreline of the corresponding v-grooves of each pulley are perfectly aligned and ready for operation.
If you want the best in alignment solutions for your machinery, look no further than Easy-Laser. Tested and recommended by Walkers Auto Electrics, the XT190 Belt Alignment system provides accurate and efficient alignments for all equipment including v-belts & pulleys, chains & sprocket drives, and timing belts & sprocket drives.
