Mathematical Rim-and-Face Alignment

Learning objectives

  • Identify types of misalignment
  • Recall steps for the mathematical method of rim-and-face alignment
  • Recall the advantages of the rim-and-face alignment method

Course overview

Shaft misalignment is one of the major contributors to rotating equipment mechanical failure. Bearings, couplings, mechanical seals, and packing failure are usually an indirect result of shaft misalignment. The rim-and-face alignment method can help reduce premature equipment failure.

The Mathematical Rim-and-Face Alignment training course identifies how to perform an alignment. It also discusses the types of misalignment identifiable and correctable by the rim-and-face alignment method. This online training course is part of the Shaft Alignment training series.
