Practical Shaft Alignment Course



Our Practical Shaft Alignment Course constitutes a two-day Practical Training to bring all theoretical knowledge and experience into Industrial practical application. The aim of this course is to train technical professionals about the modus - Operandi of Shaft alignment. The course is available at a reasonable price with custom-designed features according to your unique needs and delivered by extremely experienced Trainers.

 Why Join Our Course

Shaft misalignment occurs when two or more machinery shafts are not in line with each other. For most rotating machines used in process industries, the trend is toward higher speeds, higher horsepower per machine, and less sparing. The first of these factors increase the need for precise alignment. This is necessary to minimize vibration & premature wear of components like bearings, shaft seals & couplings, etc.

The alignment of rotating machinery is not a new subject. However, till today as per statistics, 20-30 % of total break down across the industry are caused by misalignment. This fact indicates the magnitude of attention and effort required to improve upon. Accurate alignment is the responsibility of all concerned including technicians, engineers & managers.


We have designed a highly structured shaft alignment short training course and we will educate and train you to counter any misalignment and keep your rotational machinery functioning thus cutting down maintenance costs and ensuring steady production. You will get practical exposure to different alignment methods and apply these methods to a model.
