"Within the maintenance world, we see a strong trend with tablets moving more and more to the foreground. In order to meet the customers' expectations of tomorrow we saw it as the right time to introduce the very first tablet-based shaft alignment system", says Michael Stolze, Managing Director, PRÜFTECHNIK Alignment Systems.

Built on the latest mobile communication technologies, the new solution makes shaft alignment available to maintenance teams and professionals exactly where and when they need it. Combined with all the information, tools and applications required for the maintenance job on one single multi-functional platform, laser alignment has never been so convenient and integrated.

Intuitive functionalities make tab@lign the ideal mobile solution for standard shaft alignment applications including quick alignment checks. Based on the PRÜFTECHNIK patented single-laser technology, tab@lign also offers powerful features such as the Active Clock for precise measurement and Live Move for real-time corrections. Results are displayed on one screen including both horizontal and vertical coupling and feet results, and arrows showing the correction directions. With a one-page graphical alignment report immediately available, results can be emailed on the spot.

tab@lign comprises the app, the measurement equipment and a Bluetooth® module for wireless communication. tab@lign runs on everyday mobile devices.

A rugged glove-enabled industry tablet is available as an additional option. The tab@lign app, including a demo mode, can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
