ROTALIGN touch receives Best Overall Solution Award 2016

(PresseBox) (Ismaning, ) At the Reliability Conference 2016 in Las Vegas, Terrence O’Hanlon, CEO and Publisher of Uptime Magazine officially conferred the Best Overall Solution Award 2016 on PRUFTECHNIK for their ROTALIGN touch shaft alignment system. Uptime Magazine’s Solution Awards Program recognizes innovative products, software, training and services for maintenance reliability and asset management.

In his speech, CEO at PRUFTECHNIK North America Florian Buder declared: “I would like to thank the community for the ongoing trust in PRUFTECHNIK’s solutions. […] Laser shaft alignment has entered a new dimension and has never been easier. For the first time it is possible to embed alignment results wirelessly in your asset management system with ROTALIGN touch, the fourth edition of the ROTALIGN series.”

The recently launched ROTALIGN touch is the first laser alignment tool that can track an asset’s shaft alignment condition over time. The alignment trend provides useful information to help diagnose machine condition more specifically. Cornerstone of the new solution is the unique sensALIGN sensor technology delivering the leading precision that the industry has now come to expect from PRUFTECHNIK.

The cloud-enabled mobile ROTALIGN touch device wirelessly receives alignment tasks from the ALIGNMENT RELIABILITY CENTER 4.0 software, and sends alignment results back via the cloud from any location. The asset-specific tasks, paired with the integrated RFID reader makes machine identification fully automatic and error-free. The built-in camera allows adding pictures to the alignment report for a more visual documentation.

ROTALIGN touch offers a more modern experience of alignment: just tap, swipe and drag, just like a smartphone or tablet. The interactive 3D user interface and the wizard-like user guidance provide a fully transparent, visual and intuitive workflow. When the job really gets hands-on, use voice control for hands free operation. With its strengthened glass screen, capacitive glove-enabled touchscreen and tough housing, ROTALIGN touch is built for rough industrial conditions.


The PRUFTECHNIK group, with subsidiaries and partners in more than 70 countries worldwide, is continuing to set new standards with innovative technical developments in the sectors of machine laser alignment, condition monitoring and nondestructive testing to maximize and optimize machine and plant availability and to secure product quality.
