Schaeffler introduces Device that enables fast, easy alignment of rotating plant

A new handheld laser optical alignment device has been launched that enables faster, easier alignment of shafts in rotating equipment such as fans, motors, pumps, gearboxes, ventilators and compressors.

Schaeffler Device

On show for the first time in the UK at MAINTEC 2013, Schaeffler’s FAG Top-Laser EQUILIGN is a compact, robust, easy-to-use device that guides the user step-by-step through the measurement process until correct shaft alignment is achieved. Graphical operating instructions and an intuitive autoflow function ensure that all maintenance technicians can use the device, regardless of their skills or experience.

The correct alignment of coupled and uncoupled shafts is critical in order to achieve high efficiency and reliability of rotating equipment. Approximately 20% of rotating equipment is incorrectly aligned. A correctly aligned shaft means less friction and vibration are generated by the drive system, which means less wear on belts, pulleys, bearings and seals. This means the running time and reliability of rotating machinery is increased, energy costs are kept to a minimum and overall plant efficiency is improved.

FAG Top-Laser EQUILIGN is waterproof and contamination-resistant (protected to IP65), which means plant and maintenance engineers can use the device in harsh industrial environments. The device is powered by batteries or rechargeable batteries and so is ready-to-use at all times. Even in poor light conditions, an integral light meter automatically adapts the brightness of the display to suit the environment. The device is compact and easy to carry, weighing just 800g. An ergonomic design also allows the user to operate the device using both thumbs.

FAG Top-Laser EQUILIGN benefits from a reliable real time display that indicates any horizontal or vertical movements during alignment. Up to 50 measurement files can be stored directly on the device. Even if operation is interrupted, the measurement data is automatically secured and the process can be continued later without any problems.

Measurement data can be output in metric or imperial units. Users can also select from 20 available languages, including Russian and Chinese. The device is supplied with a practical carry case and a range of accessories including mounting brackets, reflector, chains, posts and batteries.

In addition, a set of 360 shims (20 shims in three sizes and six thicknesses) and a withdrawal tool is available for eliminating vertical misalignment and ‘soft foot’. An Accessory Kit is also available for larger shaft diameters or coupling heights, which includes various sizes of posts and chains, as well as magnetic holders.

最有效的磨削技术—轴承生产工业

最有效的磨削技术—轴承生产工业(0)

轴承生产工业面临问题以及趋势 磨削,是轴承生产工业的核心手段。它占据了主要的 生产时间与成本。磨削的质量以及生产率关系到轴承企业 的成功与否。 浮动夹持臂型无心研磨(通常称为 ‘Microcentric’) 是生产轴承环最常见的技术。它是如此普遍,因为三个主 要优点: – 非常快速的工件装卸。 -轴承环是在无应力状态下磨削。加工后,它几乎没有变形。 – 完全有可能达到超出加工机床本身主轴的更好的精 度/圆度。同时,Microcentric 术有几个重要的根本弱点: 1。磨削过程中的几何和动态稳定性较低。最后的轴承 环的圆度对于“浮动夹持臂”的最佳位置,环的初始圆度 ,进给率和其他条件,等等,是非常敏感的。由于上述因 素的影响,各次谐波可能会再次产生,越来越多。 2。大量的时间用在修改机床的设置,只有训练有素的 人可以做这个工作。操作者必须找到“浮动夹持臂”的最 佳位置(浮动夹持臂与磨削点之间的α和β夹角)。最佳 α-β角是实现最好的精度与最高的效 率之间的平衡点。通常需要多次的反复尝试。此外,这项 技术要求做定期的精度监测和定期机床调整。 3。工件加工系统的刚度不足—-薄壁轴承—- 它已经成为薄壁轴承加工的巨大的问题。 克服上述技术缺陷是至关重要的。目前全球轴承市场竞争非常激烈,市场要求更高的精度和更多的客 户特定轴承,但价格却要适中。 许多轴承在小批量的生产中。在这样的条件下,要赚钱,则技术灵活性是关键。缺乏技术的非熟练工 业劳动力打击了所有的经济体。漫长而复杂的机器设置变成一个真正的问题。 此外,因为新钢材料应用和先进的设计,使得现代轴承变得越来越轻,这意味着轴承环变得越来越薄, 则轴承工件系统的刚度越来越低。 RON-Centric RON-Centric 技术,是最新一代的“浮动夹持臂”无心研磨技术。 它保持了所有的传统技术优势,并消除了传统技术的主要缺点。 RON-Centric 技术可以在同时实现很高的柔性,精度以及生产效率µ RON-Centric 是一新的工装系统,它取代了传统的Microcentric 夹具。这项技术是基于独特的“多点聚焦中心”的概念。侧“浮动夹 持臂”的设计,用数学优化纠正工件的圆度误差。叠层的精密的“浮 点”由高强度钛合金制成的,内部有无摩擦的柔性铰链提供的的六个 自由度。 RON-Centric 独特的设计,确保控制了任何圆度偏差从2至500谐波。 由于最佳的内部结构,RON-Centric系统不需要任何优化的α-β 的角度。侧面“浮动夹持点”始终是固定的通过主轴中心(从研磨点 为180度的位置)。底部的“浮点”位置不是很重要而且相应的有不 同的变化。 其结果,RON-Centric提供了许多不可替代的优点,这些对于提高总效 率至关重要: 1。非常稳定的研磨加工过程。由RON-Centric的内部参数所决定的很 高的几何稳定性,不依赖于α-β的优化。通过最优化的“浮动夹持点”
