Using state-of-the-art laser tracker solutions, Schaeffer Precision Alignment provides dimensional measurement expertise for gas turbine systems across a broad range of industries. We employ custom engineered methods for alignments, rebuilds, and problem solving that help reduce turbine outages and improve operational efficiency.
At 83% faster than traditional methods, our laser tracker services eliminate the need for generator shutdowns or scaffolding removal. Within only three hours at your location, we’ll conduct a tops-on or tops-off 18 station inspection on any 3 bearing turbine. Our laser tracker is capable of error-free 360° inspection of volumes up to 200’, achieving 0.001” repeatable accuracy thanks to our ability to establish a centerline during coordinate system readings. Using gravity-independent control points with a free orientation axis, we maximize precision and eliminate human error.
From bearing housings to compressor casings, we offer a concise approach to every alignment process that measures center point, bore center location, concentricity, radial, and axial distances. Our technicians will analyze and anticipate your alignment requirements, identifying components that are out of range, misaligned, or experiencing excessive vibration. All data is recorded in real-time and fully customizable for a variety of report and presentation formats that are simple to understand. We provide on-site consultation on every project, acting as a long term partner and not just a vendor.Request a Quote
We’ll predict the thermodynamic behavior of your machinery’s internal parts during rest or after operation. Thermal growth causes geometry changes and ultimately leads to misalignment, high vibration, and excessive power consumption. We help our customers anticipate changes using high-speed data processing, graphical alignment, and digital verification of measurement tolerances.Request a Quote
Our technicians understand the rigorous requirements for heavy machinery and equipment placement during new construction planning by positioning, calibrating, and aligning machinery in relation to other equipment. By reducing error in gas turbine positioning, we help eliminate potential problems, enable quick setup, and prevent cost overruns.Request a Quote
