Evolved simplicity

EVO

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler”, Albert Einstein.

Simplicity in your hands

The laser-based shaft alignment tool, EVO, is all about evolved simplicity.

It is a product without the frills and the bling, bling that stays true to our core values: simplicity, user-friendliness, and innovative techniques, while at the same giving you the power of alignment in your hands.

The EVO offers a compact display unit with a 5” color touch screen. It is slim and balanced, allowing you to hold it in one hand, leaving your other hand free to touch the screen icons and rotate the shafts.

It has a clean and color-coded graphic user interface that helps the maintenance professional throughout the measurement and alignment process without any hassles and stress.

The EVO offers an extensive shaft alignment package, including the Feetlock function that is useful in base/bolt-bound machine situations.

An All Digital Tool

Acoemwas the first to use the digital CCD technology in sensors of this kind and, hence, the first to deliver a digital shaft alignment system to the market.

With a 30 mm CCD detector, you are able to obtain unparalleled repeatability together with outstanding precision alignment, regardless of ambient light and measurement environment. The benefit over the older analog PSD technology is unmatched with regards to the capability of filtering and refining the measurement data.

Another benefit is the size of the sensors that are very compact, only 33 mm thick, and therefore easy to fit into even the tightest spaces.

Adaptive User Interface with the VertiZontal Moves™

Acoem has developed an adaptive user interface, i.e. a user interface that actually tells you what to do based on your measurement results. With the VertiZontal Moves™ feature, we have brought to you one of the most innovative and time-saving features in the shaft alignment world.

The adaptive user interface shows how much a misaligned machine requires to be adjusted by adding or removing shims at the machine’s feet. When proceeding with the measurement, you no longer need to remeasure inbetween the vertical and the horizontal adjustment during the adjustment process.

The following horizontal adjustment is promptly carried out with real values displayed.

Pick Your View with the Screen Flip

Confusing when the display screen does not show the machine from the same angle as yours? No problem, we have a solution for that as well – the Screen Flip. It enables you to see the machine set-up from the actual view that you have of the machine.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

​EVO has a limited lifetime warranty. For more information, contact your local dealer!
