  • Why You should take this training program

    Proper alignment of rotating machinery can help cut your energy costs and increase the “in-production” time of your equipment. Take this shaft alignment training to lower your maintenance costs and increase the bearing life.

    Workers in our shaft alignment training learn to identify the symptoms of misaligned rotating machinery. Then, you will practice using the proper tools to correct a multitude of issues ranging from piping induced stress to soft foot to run out.

    Optional: Combine Laser and computer software technology with your hands-on skills to help with shaft alignment.
