VibrAlign Introduces the Fixturlaser NXA Pro Laser Shaft Alignment System Featuring Industry Leading Innovations for Greater Ease of Use and Accuracy

Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) April 10, 2013

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 users 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 industrys 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


Eastern Laser Offers New Laser Engraving Machine for Leathers

(PRWEB) July 12, 2012

Eastern Laser, the premier laser machine manufacturer, offers new laser engraving machine ETC-2516 for leather engraving. According to Eastern Laser, ETC-2516 is usually used for leather engraving of upper vamp, handbags, and dermises, boxes and cases, and so on.

The processing forms include drilling holes, drawing lines on the surface or cutting pictures. The process requirements: no yellowing on the surface of the lines, the bottom color of the materials should be showed, no blacking at the incision of the dermis, the engraving is clear. Materials include synthetic leather, PU leather, PVC leatherwood, Rough dermis materials, semi-products, various kinds of leather upper materials, and so on. The engraving speed is determined by sizes of graphics. The slower speed, 0.8 meter per minute, is for small pictures and the higher, 1.5-3 meters per minute, is for big pictures. The optical density 75% is enough to breakdown most leathers. The speed of dermis cutting will be slower, 0.4-1.2 meters per minute and the optical density is 60-75%. The incision of dermis will black. Air slash will generate oxide layers. Its difficult to meet the requirements of no blacking at the incision of dermis. To meet these requirements, some processing is need, such as move away the blacking edge with plasticizes. And until now, there is no resolution to the odor generated in the cutting process. Cutting with nitric require high pressure nitric and its of slow speed and high cost. But its of better effect to cut non-oxide layer. Different leather should use different cutting methods. For example, in marking of leatherwood, the leather can be wetted first and then marking for better effect. For cutting of dermis, masking tape can be laid on to avoid yellowing; blacking of incision need special treatment.

Laser machine can mark characters, serial number, date of production, bar code, two dimensional bar-code etc. Moreover, product Numbers, serial number or the date, time can skip automatically. A laser target text& graphics is so clarity, and can not be altered or erased, facilitating product quality and tracking system more effective, whats more, colluding, fake or out of date products can be prevented.

Laser marking machine can process all metal products, such as: stainless steel, iron, copper, aluminum, gold, silver, alloy and all the metal oxides , which is widely applied in hardware products, jeweler, watches, integrated circuit (IC), plastic buttons, mobile communications, automotive parts, tableware, sanitary ware, hardware tools, electric appliance, medical equipment, etc.
