Optalign Smart Training

Precise Training’s online Pruftechnik Optalign® Smart Training course covers the use and navigation of the Optalign® Smart laser alignment tool. Coupled with the Foundations of Laser Shaft Alignment, we concentrate on key steps and information to provide practical knowledge that students can take directly to the job site.

Our course covers the following topics:

  • What is shaft alignment?
  • The basics of shaft alignment
  • Methods of shaft alignment
  • Recommended tools and accessories
  • Technologies that complement laser shaft alignment
  • Challenges that occur during laser shaft alignment and how to resolve them
  • Identify the types of soft foot and how to correct them
  • Thermal growth and how it affects alignment
  • Pre-alignment checks
  • Components of the Optalign® Smart
  • Setup of the sensors and brackets
  • Navigation of the menus, measurement methods, and advanced capabilities of the Optalign® Smart
  • Workflow of an alignment with the Optalign® Smart

Please note that this course is for the Optalign® Smart, not the Optalign® Smart RS or RS5.

If you have a laser/sensor and a reflector as shown below this course is for you. If you have a separate laser and sensor, please contact us for training.

After completing our online laser shaft alignment training course, students will know why and how a shaft alignment is completed, understand the pros and cons of various methods of shaft alignment, and identify and resolve issues that occur during an alignment.

Students have access to the course for 90 days which allows them to set their own pace for completion as well as re-visit and review the material as needed. Our online course is a portable alignment training class that goes anywhere there is access to an internet connection.

The price for this course is $359 per student or groups of 4 at $999 per group.  A certificate is supplied to each student upon course completion.

The Foundations

Optalign Smart Introduction
5 minutes
Why we align, Optalign Smart
4 minutes

In this lesson we will cover some of the reasons why we should do precision alignment.

Why we align
6 questions
The Basics, Optalign Smart
8 minutes

In this lesson we will be looking at what the alignment tool is measuring and what we need to consider in our setup and how to analyze the alignment results.

The basics
7 questions
Alignment methods, Optalign Smart
10 Minutes

In this lesson we will cover the different methods used for shaft alignment.

We will also be looking at the different types of laser alignment tools, their basic setup and functionality.

Alignment Methods
8 questions
Tools & Accessories
5 minutes

What additional tools should we have available to complete the alignment? We will go over the recommended tools and accessories. And discuss the tools and accessories that are not recommended.

Complimentary Technologies
5 minutes

In this lesson we will look at complimentary technologies. These are technologies that will help us get more information on the machines that we are aligning as well as determine whether or not problems that we may run into on a running machine are caused by a misalignment.

Challenges A
10 Minutes

In this lesson we will cover some of the more common challenges you may encounter during the alignment process and look at ways to avoid or compensate for them.

Challenges A

Challenges B
12 Minutes

In this lesson we will look at more common challenges that may be encountered during the alignment process.

Challenges B
6 questions
Soft foot, Optalign Smart
13 minutes

What is soft foot? It is a critical component we need to measure and correct to ensure we are getting a proper alignment.

We will look at the different types of soft foot, how to measure it and how to correct it.

Soft Foot
6 questions
Thermal Growth
7 Minutes

Thermal growth can be a challenge since it only affects our alignment once our machines get to operating temperature. We will cover how to calculate and measure thermal growth and when it needs to be included in the alignment process.

Thermal Growth
8 questions
Pre-Alignment and Rough Alignment
5 Minutes

This lesson covers the pre-alignment checks and rough alignment procedures.
