The system is based on dial indicator methods, which have been used for years. The V180 system, however, eliminates the need for cumbersome bracket set-up of dial indicators, bracket sag considerations, and brings laser accuracy to every alignment job.

Since the V180 displays live machine values right on-screen, the user isn’t required to perform any complicated calculations, or go through repeated alignment procedures – “What you do is what you see,” right on the screen. Extend the life of your equipment by decreasing the wear and tear on it from misaligned shafts. You’ll also save money by keeping your equipment running at peak efficiency.

The V180 comes with all the hardware and tools you need to begin doing alignments as soon as you open the carrying case. Anodized aluminum chain brackets fit standard shaft diameters from 1/8” to 7-1/2”. The chains can be extended to accommodate virtually any shaft diameter (see V180 Accessories below).

The transmitter-detector units are mounted on rods extending from each of the brackets. The transmitter-detector units are clearly labeled (one for the stationary machine and the other for the movable machine). The cables and the display unit are also clearly marked, simplifying the set up.

Once the transmitter-detector units are mounted, they plug directly into the display box. The easy-to-use, ergonomically designed display unit fits right in your hand. Its intuitive design means you can step through an alignment as soon as you pick it up. Increase your productivity and efficiency with a V180 Laser Alignment System today!
