Yes Yen – Computer Based Training (CBT) & Management Solutions for
Industrial Operation, Maintenance & Technical Skills

  • Alignment basics, Accessories and Various Methods covered
  • In–depth understanding on Reverse Peripheral Method
  • Latest techniques like Laser Alignment
  • Extensive Graphics, Animations, Skill tests, Certificate printouts.
  • Alignment Tool, 'SlideALine 2004', using Reverse Peripheral Method
The Rotating Equipment (Machine / Shaft / Coupling) Alignment Training Course covers several alignment methods like Straight Edge Alignment, Rim Face Alignment, Reverse Dial Indicator Alignment and Laser Alignment. The primary focus on Alignment Graphic / Alignment Animation in the CBT, helps in very clearly understanding the various Alignment Procedures. The Reverse Dial Indicator (Peripheral) Alignment Procedure, which is also the principle behind the Laser Alignment technique, has been dealt in Explicit detail. The Alignment Training Program has a dedicated tool ‘SlideALine’ to carry out easy and effective alignment of Machine (Coupling Alignment / Shaft Alignment), using the Reverse Dial Indicator Alignment method. A Focused Emphasis on the Geometry of Misalignment using Intricate Animated Explanations gives a Deep Insight into understanding how a Correct Alignment Procedure is to be executed.
