Alignment Methods & New Technologies to Keep the Power Going
Proper alignment is crucial in shipbuilding and marine maintenance. Boats and marine craft are subject to twisting forces because of their environment and load. You may have alignment on your work list, but are you using the correct one to ensure proper performance and longevity of your mechanical components? In this session, attendees will be introduced to laser, optical, and strain gauge alignment methods. Benefits and alignment equipment will be discussed, along with which method goes best with what marine application. Implementing alignment into shipyard and maintenance periods to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and decrease the affect on the environment will also be discussed.
