mathLooking for a real solution to save money while improving your equipment’s performance? We’ve got the solution. We have proven, tested, and perfected our alignment inspection process across the nation and the world. We can say for certain that nobody else is able to provide the same detailed reports as Schaeffer Precision Alignment. And certainly we are unmatched in our customer service and experience.

Misaligned equipment in an industrial setting can mean inefficiency and a loss of potential profits. It will likely also mean an increase in wear and tear, resulting in an early replacement requirement, thereby causing even more expense than necessary. The answer to this problem is to hire a professional metrology service company that can analyze the machinery in question and correct any misaligned components they find.

The cost of calibrating and realigning machinery is miniscule compared to the potential benefits to be gained from having a machine operating with greater efficiency. In time the cost will pay for itself over and over again, not just in increased production, but also in longer machine life and lesser maintenance costs.

gears Even machinery that was installed properly with laser precision equipment can become misaligned in day-to-day production. The following items are just a few ways how machinery can become misaligned.

  • Thermal Shifts – Hot and cold differences can make a big difference in the alignment of rotary and machine tools. Even a shift in humidity or seasonal change can greatly affect the performance of precision machinery.
  • Vibration – When parts are misaligned, even by a few millimeters, vibration is the effect. Vibration and misalignment is directly propositional. The more vibration, the more the equipment can become misaligned.
  • Foundation Problems – The integrity of the machinery’s foundation has a huge effect on its precision alignment.
  • Rebuilding – Replacing old, worn parts with new parts can lead to largely misaligned equipment. No two parts are exactly the same. Any rebuilding, repairing, or re-installation of machinery requires laser precision alignment.

Regular alignment checks and tweaks are absolutely necessary to maintaining the integrity of production machinery. The good news is that Schaeffer Precision Alignment has the tools needed to provide precision maintenance with limited downtime. The days of long shutdowns are over. With today’s technology we can provide laser precision checks and installations in a fraction of the time.

Give us a call today and schedule a precision alignment check during your next scheduled shutdown. You’ll find that it barely adds any time to your downtime, but it will improve the production and efficiency of your machinery.
