Laser Coupling Alignment
UPI provides precision laser shaft alignment for directly coupled machinery.
Precision alignment will lead to reduced maintenance and operational costs; as well as increased product quality. There are a number of ways that this process will save money.
First, misalignment is the leading cause of bearing failure. Misalignment destroys bearings, seals and couplings long before they reach their life expectancy. When a motor fails (the most likely component to fail) it can cause secondary damage to the driven machine (pump, fan, compressor, etc.), increasing the cost of failure as much as 10 times.
Precision Laser Alignment provides:
UPI not only performs a precision alignment, but thoroughly inspects your base, shaft runout, coupling runout, soft foot and thermal growth. From small 5HP to 1000HP+, UPI has the experience to accurately align all type and sizes of equipment. Using dual laser systems, UPI provides faster, more accurate alignments than service providers using single laser systems. Upon completion, we will perform vibration analysis and infrared thermography (when possible) on your equipment to insure no other issues exist that will reduce your equipment longevity after the alignment.

Laser Sheave Alignment
UPI provides precision laser belt alignment with the following benefits:
We thoroughly check each machine before starting the alignment process to check for framework anomalies that could reduce the belt alignment results. Since wobbly or warped pulleys greatly affect alignment quality, we can check each pulley to ensure proper mounting on the shafts and that the shafts are straight. To compensate pulleys with different wall thicknesses, we use a magnetic target that mounts in the sheave’s belt groove providing higher accuracy. Our laser tool furnishes a target for each pulley, providing faster and more accurate correction of any angular, offset and twist misalignment between the pulleys.

In addition, we help you reduce maintenance personnel training costs. When our job is done, we provide you with a detailed report of our findings along with the solutions necessary to fix any other equipment problems that are found.
