Dynamic Balancing and Laser Alignment
Nearly anything that rotates, or is supported in bearings that allow it to rotate, needs balancing to insure quality performance. Smith Services utilizes CSI & various Schenck models of balancing equipment and have the capability to balance up to 40,000 lbs. in house.
All precision equipment must be aligned in order to function accurately. Smith’s technicians can provide print outs and live visual displays detailing specifications and tolerances for alignment. Laser alignment can be done on any size equipment from 5 HP and up on both horizontal and vertical motors. We also have the capability for aligning pulleys and belts.
