The objective of shaft alignment is to increase the operating lifespan of rotating machinery. To achieve this goal, machinery components that are most likely to fail must operate within their design limits. Since the components that are most likely to fail are the bearings, seals, coupling and shafts, accurately aligned machinery will achieve the following results:

  • Reduce excessive axial and radial forces on the bearings to insure longer bearings life and rotor stability under dynamic operating conditions.

  • Minimize the amount of shaft bending from the point of power transmission in the coupling to the coupling-end-bearing.

  • Minimize the amount of wear in the coupling components.

  • Lower vibration levels in the machine casings, bearing housings and rotors.

  • Maintain proper internal rotor clearances.
