A new standard for affordable laser alignment

The new ShaftAlign Touch is a rugged laser alignment system that provides digital, cloud, and other advancements over the decades-old but still widely used dial indicator and feeler gauge.

ShaftAlign Touch is a combination of software and hardware innovations enabling maintenance teams to address a wide variety of alignment challenges that basic laser alignment systems cannot handle.

It also delivers premium Adaptive Alignment capabilities that, until now, were not available in an entry-level system.

Two innovations – single-laser technology and Active Situational Intelligence – differentiate ShaftAlign Touch from the competition.

Together, they deliver the “magic” that enables Prüftechnik alignment products to automatically adapt – in real time, as alignment jobs are finished – to the asset, the situation, and the user's experience level.

Step up to the high precision and intelligence built into the ShaftAlign Touch: eliminate the time, rework, and guessing common to other approaches. Get more done while enabling your machines to operate at peak performance.
