Shaft alignment tools

Proactive maintenance solutions to boost the productivity & longevity of your critical rotating machinery

Precision laser shaft alignment tools make the process of measuring and correcting misalignment of your machinery easier, more accurate and repeatable. With the right technology, novices and experts alike can make informed decisions and operate machinery with greater efficiency, minimising wear, production stoppages and unnecessary costs.

Precision alignment matters

Not only is precision laser alignment crucial to protecting the operational efficiency and life expectancy of your rotating machinery, it also reduces stress on your equipment and helps avoid unexpected failures which may cause full process shutdowns or safety incidents.
Misalignment is the root cause of upwards of 50% of all rotating asset failures, including lubrication issues from seal cracks and bearing faults. Studies indicate that it is also responsible for a 3-10% increase in energy consumption, translating to significant additional costs over your machine’s lifetime.

Even the smallest angle misalignment can reduce the lifespan of your components by 50%. To avoid this scenario and keep your machinery running efficiently, you need to proactively undertake precision alignment as part of your maintenance program to save your business both time and money. With Acoem task-oriented laser shaft alignment tools, you can be confident that your machinery will be aligned quickly, easily and accurately every time, with all the guidance you need available via your tablet or smartphone.

Four decades of excellence in alignment

What began as a mechanical workshop in Sweden in 1984, evolved to become an international leader in laser-based shaft alignment for rotating assets. Acoem developed the world’s first shaft alignment tool with integrated software that calculated measurement values with visible red laser and additional functionality, such as measurement of straightness, perpendicularity and parallelism.
We were pioneers in the use of touchscreens with icons and graphics for industrial instruments in the mid-1990s and introduced wireless sensors in the mid-2000s. We have continued to design and manufacture cutting-edge, user-centric alignment solutions that require minimal set-up time and utilise application software that empowers mechanics and maintenance teams. We remain committed to focusing on digitalisation, ease of use and accessibility for our customers worldwide.
