VibrAlign is pleased to announce the release of the newest short video about laser shaft alignment featuring trainer Stan Riddle, entitled “Secrets of Alignment”. The “Stan the Trainer” video series is just one initiative in VibrAlign’s commitment to help businesses use their resources more efficiently and effectively.

The new video can be seen on the VibrAlign Youtube channel at Previously released videos include “Introducing Stan Riddle”, “ReAligning America”, “Stan Switches Teams”, “Stan on Verti-Zontal” and “Real World Alignments”.

When Stan and VibrAlign’s other trainers teach alignment, they focus first on the steps that should be completed before beginning the alignment process. These “pre-alignment” steps are part of the secret to a successful alignment. Pre-alignment includes eliminating gross misalignment, controlling soft-foot, and tightening the bolts in a regular, repeatable pattern.

In the video Stan also addresses the issue of operators trusting their laser alignment system. According to Stan, “It’s not the laser tool that’s making the mistake. Laser alignment tools are as dumb as a bowling shoe. It all depends on whoever is pushing the buttons. ”

Over the years Stan has seen a lot and learned a lot about alignment. He brings all that experience to his teaching. Stan has also been a major contributor to, and is a regular contributor to, where he serves as an Industry Pro.
