Misalignment leads to increased vibration, premature seal or bearing
failures, and increased power consumption. There’s no excuse to let
misalignment cost you money. Protect your machines and minimize
costly downtime through precision laser shaft alignment.

Monitor Critical Mill Assets
The SKF (Lansdale, PA) Multilog
On-line System IMx-S introduces
an ideal solution to monitor the
condition of critical steel mill
assets 24/7 and detect faults
early to help prevent machine
failures and ultimately improve
process control, asset performance and reliability, machinery uptime, and maintenance
planning, says the company.
This robust, programmable, and
modular technology can be tailored to accommodate a wide
range of challenging mill conditions. Features include:
• Timely and true simultaneous measurements of key operating parameters
with the objective to track changes for analysis and take necessary remedial
actions in advance of failure.
• Depending on model, the system incorporates either 16 or 32 analog signal
inputs configurable for a variety of sensors to ascertain and measure parameters including temperature, vibration, acceleration, velocity, and displacement.
• Individual warning and alarm levels controlled by machine speed or load can
be set for each measurement point. The system can run on an existing LAN or
WAN and network with computers, printers, and servers, or over the Internet.
• Unique built-in hardware auto-diagnosis capability, which checks all sensors,
cabling, and electronics for any faults, signal interruption, shorts, or power
failure and then automatically alerts should problems in the system be found.
