CENTRALIGN Ultra Standard

Trust CENTRALIGN Ultra Standard for bore alignment in combustion engines, compressors, pumps, gearboxes and stern tubes.  

CENTRALIGN Ultra Standard is a precision laser alignment system designed to replace older and more time-consuming technologies. It is much faster, very precise, and provides a clear measurement protocol.​

  • True bore center measurement: Determination of the eccentricity error
  • Patented universal pointer brackets with rotating sensor holder improve measurement precision and handling
  • Measurement of both magnetic and non-magnetic bores with diameters ranging from 45 mm to over 4000 mm
  • Ease of handling, lightweight components and measurement methods to suit specific applications
  • Precise user-independent measurements and results
  • View the minimum corrections required
  • Convenient wireless data transmission.​

CENTRALIGN Ultra Standard carries out measurements using a laser beam and patented universal pointer brackets;  this eliminates mechanical and sag errors. The rotating sensor holder makes the measurement procedure so much easier as there is no need to reposition the sensor to take the various measurements. Our pointer brackets are also suitable for a range of bore diameters.

In addition to the alignment of bores, bearing pedestals and other circular machine elements, CENTRALIGN Ultra Standard also includes a measurement method for the alignment of workpieces to boring heads.

The system utilizes the proven ROTALIGN Ultra platform, and is therefore extendable to shaft alignment, flatness, straightness and other geometrical applications.


Proficiency in bore alignment

Proper repair and reconditioning of combustion engines, compressors and pumps requires exact measurement of the alignment of crankshaft and camshaft bores, cylinder bores and crosshead guides. This is usually accomplished by optical or wire-based methods.

CENTRALIGN® Ultra is a precision laser alignment system designed to replace those older and more time-consuming technologies. It is much faster, very precise, and provides a clear measurement protocol. Measurements are carried out using a laser beam and patented universal pointer brackets, and therefore eliminating mechanical and sag errors. In addition to the alignment of bores, bearing pedestals and other circular machine elements, CENTRALIGN® Ultra also includes a measurement procedure for the alignment of workpieces to boring heads. The system utilises the proven ROTALIGN® Ultra platform, and therefore extendable to shaft alignment, flatness and straightness applications.
