Traditional classroom model
Version 1 and 2: Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: discuss why proper coupling alignment of stationary and rotating components is critical to machine function; discuss circumstances under which alignment checks should be performed, other than initial machinery installation; measure and correct angularity to square the coupling face; perform all phases of machinery alignment using three measurement methods: feeler gauge and straightedge alignment, dial indicator alignment, and laser alignment.
Version 1 or 2: Precision alignment is critical to the successful installation and operation of the large-scale machinery on which millwrights work. During the course, students learn to perform a coupling alignment of a motor and a pump to within 1/1000th of an inch, using multiple methods, including laser alignment. Students learn to troubleshoot common alignment problems associated with Babbitt and roller bearings.
