Laser shaft alignment (commonly known as coupling alignment) is the process of aligning two or more rotating shafts in a straight line. This involves looking at both the vertical and horizontal plane to try and ensure they are rotating on a common axis (coaxial).
HOW LASER ALIGNMENT WORKS
Laser monitoring systems consist of a laser emitter and a laser sensor. The laser emitter is mounted using a bracket and chain to one shaft and the laser sensor is mounted to the other
