The world’s most advanced shaft alignment technology

For over 50 years, we have been providing highly accurate alignment systems to many different industries and applications. We started in the machine tool industry where tolerances are high and applications are difficult, and then 30 years ago we developed the world’s first 4-axis shaft alignment system. All of that experience and knowledge has gone into the design of the X-660 Wireless 3-axis Shaft Alignment System, resulting in the most accurate and yet easy-to use tool in its class.


Advanced Unidirectional Dual-Fan™ Technology

This innovative technology provides an amazing ± 8º of angular range. Utilizing 2 unidirectional laser fans (2 laser fans, 1 direction), it solves the rough-in (pre alignment) problem with “cross-fire” lasers (2 lasers, 2 directions) and makes aligning machines amazingly fast and easy, especially on long-distance applications. The result? More jobs done in less time and happier managers!

No rough-in/pre-alignment needed

All “cross-fire” laser alignment systems require a rough-in (pre-alignment) of the machine before the system be able to take data. With Dual-Fan™ technology’s 2 unidirectional laser fans and 20 mm sensors, you don’t need to rough-in the motor to get it to take data. You get the same measuring range from 2 in. to 15 ft. (50 mm to 4.5 m), unlike the “cross-fire” kits that have virtually no measuring range beyond 5 ft. (1.5 m). So just slap on the brackets, laser and target and get to work!

Fixed angular measuring resolution - great for close-coupled apps

With “cross-fire” laser technology, the angular resolution varies with distance. Ironically, it’s the close coupled applications that cause the most problems for angular accuracy for these systems. With our Dual-Fan™ technology, you get the same high angular resolution at 2 in. (50 mm) between heads as you get at 15 ft. (4.5 m), and our angular resolution is 4x higher than the highest angular spec.

Remote tech support

Utilizing the power of Windows, our tech support department can log on remotely to the tablet, via WiFi and the Internet, and troubleshoot many problems. We can usually resolve most issues with an online session, keeping you productive and potentially saving a lot of money on costly returns for repairs.

Duo-View™ automatic realtime move screen

Our Duo-View™ realtime move screen and 3-axis target allow you to view a live alignment screen for both alignment planes (4 axes) on the same screen. To switch views, just rotate the shafts to a clock position and the view is automatically switched, and the non-live axis is grayed out so there is no confusion!

X
Ultra-accuracy means 2x faster alignments

High-resolution PSD technology and 60-point sensor linearization reduce the target error rate to <0.75%, which is up to 5x higher than our competitors’ entry-level lasers and gives you the confidence that when the displays turn green, the motor is aligned as accurately as possible. Higher accuracy also means better repeatability and more accurate shim calculations so you don’t have to keep doing the alignment over and over again. Shim Once, Move Once™!

Build Your Own™ app selector

Pick only the apps you want with your X-660, using our Build Your Own™ app selector to customize your apps to meet your individual needs. We recommend a set of apps and you can check on/off the app and the price estimate and license are updated to reflect your choices!

X
Easy-Guide™ navigation with onboard manual and training videos

Our Couple6 software features our Easy-Guide™ navigation with its easy-to-follow, high quality screens, leading users through each stage of the alignment. And if you forget how to do something, the manual and training videos are built right into the software! With software this easy to use, a lot of customers start using the X-660 kit right out of the box!

5-year unconditional warranty & low cost of ownership

With no hidden warranty fees like other systems, our 5 Year Unconditional Warranty is really that: no conditions! As long as you don’t damage it by abuse, then if something goes wrong, we replace or fix it. That’s it. We also don’t charge any software maintenance fees. Software updates are free for the life of the product!

Faster Setup, Faster Alignments

Some other systems require up to a 20 minute target-lens setup before they take data. With the X-880/X-990 (use X-660/X-770 for the other page), the bracket posts are pre-aligned to the brackets, so you just attach, the brackets, slide on the laser/target and adjust so the laser goes in the window and in 2-3 minutes, you’re ready to take data!

X
Couple6 Software

We designed the Couple6 PC software with the novice user in mind and created our Easy Guide™ approach to navigation that is so simple to use, it requires little to no training. Easy-to-follow, high quality, screens lead you through each stage of the alignment, so you don’t need to constantly refer to “cheat sheets” just to remember how to use it!

Couple6 software is a powerful shaft alignment program designed to run on any Win7/8/10 tablet or laptop PC that has a Bluetooth™ connection. Since Couple6 runs on Windows 10” tablets, you can utilize the power of the tablet to email reports from the field, run other reliability software and many other Windows based programs. This also makes it easy to find a replacement if something happens to the tablet.

Rugged 10" Touchscreen Tablet Display Box

The X-660/X-770systems use familiar IP65 rugged tablets PCs that are easy to replace. You can even use your laptop if someone runs over your tablet. So there are no expensive, proprietary display devices to replace if broken.

Off-the-shelf tablet, so replacement is never a problem

Hamar Laser was the first in industry to offer a rugged tablet PC display box. Why? Instead of offering a high-cost, proprietary display devices like other manufacturers, we wanted our customers to benefit from advances in tablet technology, such as larger screens, megapixel cameras, email on the run, 1 m drop testing, hot swappable batteries, training videos on-demand, nearly unlimited data storage, etc.

Advanced Unidirectional Dual-Fan™ Technology

This innovative technology utilizes 2 unidirectional laser fans (2 laser fans shooting in 1 direction) that solves the rough-in (pre-alignment) problem with “cross-fire” lasers (2 lasers, 2 directions) and makes aligning machines amazingly fast and easy, especially on long-distance applications. It also provides a very generous ± 8º of angular range plus a fixed angular resolution that is 4x higher than the highest angular tolerance. The result? More jobs done in less time and happier managers!

20x1 mm PSD detector - 0.001 mm resolution

One of the laser industry’s highest-resolution single-axis PSD sensor, providing .00004 in. (0.001 mm) resolution and a measuring area of 20x1 mm, among the best in its class.

Thin laser fans for added measurement range

Our laser fans are very thin (<2 mm), which increases the measurement range of the PSD to handle larger alignment errors. They also have very little divergence, with a max width of 3 in. (76 mm) at 15 ft. (4.5 m), which improves laser safety.

Fixed angular measuring range, great for close-coupled apps

With “cross-fire” laser technology, the angular resolution varies with distance. Ironically it’s the close coupled applications that cause the most problems for angular accuracy for these systems. With our Dual-Fan™ technology, you get the same high, fixed, angular resolution at 2 in. (50 mm) between heads as you get at 15 ft. (4.5 m), and our angular resolution is 4x higher than the highest angular spec.

Ambient Light Correction

Dual-Fan™ technology also utilizes blinking laser fans to eliminate the effects of background light. Advanced light filters are also available for direct sunlight apps.

IP67 waterproof Bluetooth® wireless heads with long battery life

With no cables to trip on or wrap around shafts, the X-770 platform makes for a safer work area, while giving you the freedom to go wherever you need to be, for 15 hours before recharging the battery. Our standard, Class 2 Bluetooth wireless technology offers up to 33 feet of communication range, and for wet work sites. The IP67-rated T-1280 target can be dunked in water up to 3 feet (1m) and still transmit data! Also, our charging cable can be used for communications in case something happens to the wireless.
