Precision from Optical Measurements

There are many optical alignment instruments and technologies both past and present that an alignment technician can utilize, but the use of optics and optical alignment measurements have proven most reliable in the field. Because industry standards require precise measurements for a multitude of purposes, our technicians rely on optics to get the job done.

Industry standard for machinery alignment is founded on the principles of:

  • Maintaining level
  • Plumb
  • Squareness
  • Perpendicularity
  • Parallelism of machinery

When on a jobsite, one must carry a variety of equipment capable of achieving proper alignment. Our technicians in our Machinery Alignment Services Division have concentrated on the use of optical instruments, specifically the theodolite and the engineer’s tilting level, two of the most versatile instruments ever invented. We have found that specific manufacturers and models of these instruments have proven to be very precise, durable, practical, and are extremely efficient when taking in-field measurements and performing optical alignment on industrial machinery. Our optical crews are highly proficient with their instruments, allowing them to use their industrial-specific knowledge to accomplish a variety of common alignment problems found in the industrial world.
