Pre alignment is important, the alignment gets easier and faster if you have the machines under control.

Recommended pre alignment steps:

  • Check run-out
  • Check obvius pipe-strain
  • Loose bolts
  • Condition of shims
  • Correct Obvious Soft Foot*
  • Rough alignment*

*Correct Obvious Soft Foot
Loosen all the bolts and find any obviously loose shim packs.
Add shims as needed to make a snug fit.

*Rough Alignment
• Vertical: Place scale or straightedge on highest hub and
raise or lower the movable shaft to within 0,5 mm of the
stationary hub.
• Horizontal: Place scale or straightedge on hub nearest to
you and adjust the movable shaft to within 0,5 mm of the
stationary hub.
