It's just a fact; Poor shaft alignment results in up to 50% of all downtime costs for rotating machine parts. Accurate shaft alignment can reduce and even prevent a large number of unplanned downtimes leading to production losses. In view of the current challenges of cost reduction and asset optimization, accurate shaft alignment is more necessary than ever.

Machines must be aligned on both the horizontal and vertical planes. An alignment error can be due to a parallel alignment error or an angle alignment error, but is usually a combination of both.     

Shaft alignment errors can seriously affect the operation of any business and lead to:

  • More friction and therefore an increase in energy consumption
  • Early failures in bearings and seals
  • Early failures in shafts and couplings
  • Excessive lubricant leakage at seals
  • Defects in bolts of couplings and foundations
  • Increase in vibration and sound

SKF has developed a range of easy-to-use shaft alignment systems that are suitable for all alignment tasks.
