CD-ROMs
Reliability Toolbox - The Reliability Toolbox™ has four key areas that contain multimedia training, reliability knowledge assessment evaluations and maintenance procedures and forms: Maintenance Management, Condition Monitoring, Maintenance Practices, and Precision Alignment.
Rotating Equipment: Computerized and Laser Alignment - This comprehensive Activ® interactive multimedia training program consists of seven lessons that train participants to use predictive maintenance as a tool for prolonging equipment life and preventing major problems.  This lesson explains how to determine a computer's specifications and introduces proper steps to take in correcting misalignment with the use of a laser.
Rotating Equipment: Principles of Reverse Double Dial Alignment - This comprehensive Activ® interactive multimedia training program consists of seven lessons that train participants to use predictive maintenance as a tool for prolonging equipment life and preventing major problems.  This lesson describes the principles of the reverse double dial alignment method used to measure and correct misalignment.  The lesson also explains the data needed to determine offset and angularity misalignment values by using a graph.  Formulas used to calculate misalignment corrections and factors which may affect alignment are also presented.
Rotating Equipment: Reverse Double Dial Alignment Procedures - This comprehensive Activ® interactive multimedia training program consists of seven lessons that train participants to use predictive maintenance as a tool for prolonging equipment life and preventing major problems.  This lesson shows how to use the reverse double dial alignment procedure to determine and correct misalignment as well as how to take dial indicator readings.  The lesson also teaches how to calculate the necessary vertical and horizontal adjustments and how to verify the results.  Emphasis is on good record keeping, the importance of accurately reading the dial indicators, and performing the calculations correctly to ensure that proper alignment is achieved.
Training Aids
Coupling / Shaft Alignment Trainer - If you teach alignment skills, this fully functional training hardware allows your people to sharpen their skills in the classroom, not on your expensive equipment.
