Wind Power - Overview
Large forces are in action in a wind turbine. The safety of the maintenance technicians is therefore of the utmost importance. With the Laser Shaft Alignment Tool Wind Power line of Easy-Laser® shaft alignment systems the generator and gearbox can be aligned with the coupling mounted as well as the coupling dismounted and the brake locked. While Easy-Laser has different systems for different sets ups and the system with the coupling dismounted and the brake locked was designed specifically for one turbine manufacturer -Vestas – and fits all their turbine sizes.
Using the Easy-Laser software you can open the settings with the pre-defined machine templates. Quick and easy! The measurement programs are easy to learn and to use, and there are numerous options for documenting and saving the result of the work (e.g. to printer or PC).
SYSTEMS: The Easy-Laser® Vestas shaft alignment systems consist of one general installation kit, one supplement kit for use on more turbines, plus one upgrade kit (or just the bushings, see below).
