Misalignment costs time and money
Shaft misalignment is responsible for up to 50% of all costs related to rotating machinery breakdowns.
These breakdowns increase unplanned machinery downtime, resulting in higher maintenance costs and loss of production. Additionally, misaligned shafts can increase vibration levels and friction, which can significantly increase energy consumption and can cause premature bearing failures.
