The new Fixturlaser NXA Pro laser-based shaft alignment tool utilizes the latest technology in digital signal processing, as well as other innovations, to provide faster and even more intuitive operation, but with advanced functions and capabilities.
"A revolution in usability" says Elos Fixturlaser's CEO Hans Svensson about the new high-end system for precision shaft alignment, the Fixturlaser NXA Pro. "If we can provide the ultimate shaft alignment system when it comes to usability, we will help thousands of companies worldwide to become more efficient, reducing waste of both components and energy. We believe strongly that if all rotating equipment in the world were aligned within specifications we would have a much healthier environment. An alignment system that is as easy to use as the Fixturlaser NXA Pro will pave way for this result."
The new Fixturlaser NXA Pro alignment system replaces the Fixturlaser XA Professional system, incorporating numerous innovations and improvements. The innovations start with a new display unit with a 6.5inch touch screen with video game style realistic graphics and include a completely redesigned set of transmitter/detectors.
A MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) gyroscope in the display unit powers the new OmniView function. With OmniView, the screen display changes in real time to always show the machine being aligned from the same viewing angle as seen by the operator, i.e., the system logs the user’s position and keeps track of it in relation to the machine. No other laser alignment system can do this.
The new sensors use a 2nd generation scientific grade CCD technology with 'best-in-class' accuracy as well as increased reliability. Resolution of the 30 millimeter vertical sensors is equivalent to the vertical resolution of ultra high-definition television. Updated algorithms improve the sensors’ performance for linearity, sidespot and dirt rejection, and ambient light filtration.
The redesigned sensors now offer the smallest form factor on the market, with batteries and Bluetooth communication built-in, providing for easier access on machines with limited space. The new high performance inclinometers incorporated into the sensors have 2.5 times higher accuracy and 10 times higher resolution than the previous generation. In addition to the new inclinometers, the sensors also have built-in MEMS gyroscopes, allowing the system to track shaft rotation angle, even when placed in the vertical orientation required for performing a vertical shaft alignment. No other laser alignment system can do this.
Power management has been completely redesigned for the new NXA Pro to provide the industry’s best operating times while using 40% less power. The system operates, under continuous use, for up to 10 hours between charges. (The sensors can continuously measure for 17 hours without charging.) Also included is an advanced 1-hour ‘quick-charge’ feature.
Reporting and data management has also been updated. Reports can easily be downloaded to a USB drive.
The Fixturlaser NXA Pro continues to support the Verti-Zontal Compound Move® alignment method. This innovative alignment process created by VibrAlign allows for the vertical and horizontal adjustments to be made together in one pass, saving valuable time and ensuring accuracy the first time around. Where older alignment techniques would require a machinery maintenance pro to make multiple adjustments and take multiple measurements, Verti-Zontal alignments are often completed with just one set of adjustments.
VibrAlign is celebrating its 30th year, having started in 1983 as a vibration and alignment service organization and later became a distributor of equipment which, appropriately, equipped our team to better serve. VibrAlign is America’s exclusive distributor of Fixturlaser® – the manufacturer of the new Fixturlaser NXA Pro. For thirty years now, VibrAlign has been growing across the country. Today the company operates out of local offices in every major region.
