Functions – Fixturlaser NXA Pro

The featured programs below are the most common used with this system. Please contact us to discuss any specific issues you have.

Horizontal Shaft Alignment

Ha
¤app H 20, Measure Start Rev A

To achieve successful shaft alignment it is vital the proper sequence of events are carried out. Understanding and utilising this methodology will drastically decrease the time required to align shafts and improve the effectiveness of your efforts. The good news is, with Fixturlaser tools our Guide-U process prompts the user throughout the process to ensure no steps are missed.

Vertical Shaft Alignment

Va
For the correction of misalignment for vertically and flange mounted machines.
 
Correction of vertical shaft alignment is done by moving the flange of the machine until the shafts are aligned to within given or industry

accepted tolerances.

Softfoot™

Sfc
¤app H 52, Softcheck Foot 2 Rev A

It is very difficult, if not impossible, to establish a softfoot condition without the use of a measuring device.

A softfoot condition needs to be corrected before alignment takes place. If not, the measurement result will be unreliable and the machine difficult to align.

Target Values

Tv
¤app H 11, Configuration W Tv Feet

Thermal expansion of machines is expressed as a factor of deliberate misalignment for both offset and angular values. In the Fixturlaser NXA system, the pre-determined target values are entered prior to starting the alignment task for both offset and angular parameters.

The entered Target Values are the figures at which the machine should be positioned when it is in the cold condition, so as to obtain the correct alignment position when the machine reaches its running temperature.

Machine Defined Data

Target Values 1

The Machine Defined Data function allows the user to create configuration templates for all kinds of manufacturing models, where data such as distances, target values and tolerances are saved.

This function is particularly useful for service organisations that maintain several wind turbine models.

Most machines generate a certain amount of heat whilst running, causing differential thermal growth to occur in the machine train.

If these figures are unknown, then by using the Fixturlaser NXA OL2R, one can measure both the hot and cold conditions and establish the machine’s unique set of Target Values.

These values are saved into the NXA Pro, enabling one to then carry out the shaft alignment process according to recommended tolerances and actual Thermal Growth values.

Feet Lock

Fl

In some instances, the machine that would normally be considered the movable element cannot be moved, for a number of reasons.

These include instances such as some have feet that may not be adjusted or are simply bolt bound, meaning there is no latitude to move the machine about the bolt-holes.

In order to perform proper alignment in these cases, the Feetlock function can be used. This function allows you to select which feet to lock and which feet are adjustable.

Machine Train

M T
Machine Train

The Machine Train setup is used when there are more than two rotating machines connected to each other.

The Machine Train program in Fixturlaser NXA is designed to quickly provide an overview of the position of each machine and to determine which machine should be chosen as stationary, in order to optimise the adjustment process.

Functions in the program make it possible to align machines to target positions, i.e. Target Values and to calculate the minimum amount of adjustment to align the entire machine train.

Hot Check

Hc
Ol2r 4

If you have unexplainable vibrations in installations such as a pump and motor etc, the Hot Check application can help pinpoint your doubts and the cause of the vibrations.

A measurement should be taken as soon as a machine has been shut down, whilst it is still hot and then another measurement taken once it has cooled to ambient temperature. The Hot Check application is then used to compare these two measurements.

The difference between the two measurements is used as the Target Values when shaft alignment is next performed.

Spacer Shaft

Ss
Spacer

Available on all NXA series instruments, the spacer shaft function is used when the alignment is performed on machinery using a membrane coupling. The membrane coupling is a typical high performance coupling, with no backlash, used for maintenance free operation. It is also suitable for high speeds or high temperature applications.

Membrane couplings are normally designed with a spacer shaft between two flexible elements making it possible to compensate for both axial, radial (offset) and angular misalignment.

PDF Report

Usb 1

Fixturlaser NXA series instruments, Fixturlaser Exo and Fixturlaser AT-2/300 all have the facility to generate enriched PDF reports.

Our PDF reports feature enables the user to create, share and store the as-found conditions and the remedial actions taken, to rectify problems found. No job is complete until the paperwork is done. With Fixturlaser PDF feature, report handover can be done whilst you are still on site or sent later by e-mail.

Our products have flexible features that enable us to tailor a package to suit your budget & specific needs.

Fixturlaser After Sales Support

Fixturlaser UK offers full technical support and training on all of our products. Training can be arranged to be carried out at our premises or yours. Contact us for more details.

Fixturlaser Guide-U™

Gu

Fixturlaser Guide-U™ is our unique icon based user interface that guides the mechanic throughout the alignment process, zero text, no confusion. Press the icon of choice and follow the screen prompts. There are no text barriers or confusing tree sub-structures cluttering the mechanic’s path to ensuring precision shaft alignment each and every time.

Fixturlaser TPS™

Tps 1

With Fixturlaser True Position Sensing, no re-measurement or additional rotation of the machine train, in between adjustments, is necessary. You can see exactly how much your remedial actions are moving the machine, live. TPS™ is accurate & innovative, ensuring the quickest response time between machine failure & getting your machine back on-line.
