Laser shaft alignment goes mobile with Pruftechnik tabAlign



June 7, 2013 – Pruftechnik Alignment Systems presents a new laser alignment solution for Apple and Android mobile devices: tab@lign, which promises unprecedented mobility, connectivity and convenience. The new solution makes shaft alignment available to maintenance teams and professionals where and when they need it, says the company, on a single, multi-functional platform. Based on Pruftechnik’s patented single-laser technology, tab@lign offers features such as Active Clock for precise measurement and Live Move for real-time corrections. Results are displayed on one screen, including both horizontal and vertical coupling and feet results, and arrows showing the correction directions. With a one-page graphical alignment report immediately available, results can be emailed on the spot. The solution consists of the app, measurement equipment and a Bluetooth module. A rugged glove-enabled industry tablet is available as an additional option.
