Paralign® Measurement - Alignment of Cylinders with Space Age TechnologyThe alignment of rolls and cylinders plays a bigger role in the quality of the end product and even in the whole production line than is often though.
PARALIGN® measurement increases efficiency of web handling production in the packaging industry. It also saves costs and reduces the environmental footprint.
Geometrical Plant Alignment using Modern Measurement TechnologyAn increase in production speed in web-conveying plants while complying with the quality requirements requires the precise geometrical alignment of the plant.
Parallelism of the rolls is as important as perpendicularity of all rolls to the reference axis of the machine.
The following explains modern measuring methods used for geometrical plant alignment:
An increase in production speed in web-conveying plants while complying with the quality requirements requires the precise geometrical alignment of the plant. PARALIGN® measurement technology offers this precise geometrical alignment. This is needed for maintaining the quality of your plants and industrial machines
A real-life example
We replace the wire rills of a post-drying group. We used the PARALIGN® service offered by PRÜFTECHNIK for verifying roll parallelism. In addition to verifying roll parallelism, we also measured and aligned the newly installed rolls. We also document their alignment state within a few hours.
Why can we not use a theodolite?
Often, this is not possible. Just as modern tracking interferometers and also electronic tachometers, theodolites are optical measuring systems that require a visual connection to the rolls.
This results in enormous restrictions. Do not underestimate the time effort either. A trained optical engineer can measure 6 to 8 rolls a day using a theodolite. PARALIGN® Measurement can completely document up to 3 drying groups within a day or so. The time for roll corrections during this service appointment is also used to document the alignment state of further drying groups.
