PRUFTECHNIK ROTALIGN touch EX is for maintenance professionals working in explosive atmospheres. It is ATEX/IECEX Zone 1 certified, eliminates the bureaucracy of “hot work permits” and simplifies alignment in EX areas.

Maintenance technicians in the oil and gas, petrochemical and chemical processing industries can use the PRUFTECHNIK single-laser technology and a ruggedized tablet with touchscreen to perform laser shaft alignment.

ROTALIGN touch EX features include the continuous SWEEP mode and the Live Move function for the simultaneous real-time machine corrections in both horizontal and vertical directions. vertiSWEEP enables the measurement of vertical machines with only one shaft rotation, and the cardan shaft rotating-arm bracket. Also available is the Soft Foot Wizard and the Move simulator allowing the operator to simulate shim values and horizontal corrections before starting moving the machine.

ROTALIGN touch EX users will also benefit from full mobile connectivity that includes Wi-Fi, an integrated camera, RFID and the ALIGNMENT RELIABILITY CENTER 4.0 PC-Software.


Users connect from the tablet via Wi Fi within their company network, or through the cloud, directly to the alignment PC software, where specialists can archive, analyze, and process asset-based alignment data for asset performance improvement and reliability programs. Together with the RFID reader, automatic machine identification allows two-way transfer of asset data.
