On Site Alignment Services & Surveys
Poorly aligned plant causes excessive wear, premature plant failures, lower process efficiencies and reduced plant availability. Why jeopardise the success of your operation – and your reputation – when precision alignment is so easy to arrange? Wherever your plant is based, around the world and around the clock, Metalock UK is your alignment partner when you need to avoid mechanical trouble…
Our critical in situ precision plant alignment surveys are carried out on site by experienced specialist, with state-of-the-art equipment.
Metalock in action
When Vosper Thorneycroft required line boring aboard RV Triton, QinetiQ’s research vessel, they appointed Metalock due to our previous working experience and their confidence that we’d achieve a successful outcome.
Precision alignment to pre-determined datum points, in conjunction with the use of our special-purpose boring machine, enabled us to successfully line bore a 401mm diameter by 730mm long stern tube (and the facing to a diameter of 610mm for the inflatable-seal housing location).
Plant alignment services in situ
As one of the world’s most experienced engineering alignment specialists, we use a unique combination of older alignment equipment (including theodolites, optical squares and levels) and the latest laser tracking in our range of alignment services. Working to workshop accuracy on site, we’ll help you avoid excessive component wear and extend the life of plant components.
Complementing our other services
Imagine the peace of mind you’ll enjoy when you entrust us to align your large or small industrial equipment. On land or at sea, in major industrial centres or remote field locations, we’re on call 24/7.
