Can someone please help convert an alignment target to laser alignment thermal growth value ?
Basically I am doing an alignment for a Gearbox to compressor. The machine is already centered and aligned to zero (almost). But I have a data sheet from OEM with target values or value I must reach, this requires the machine to be misaligned a bit to compensate for thermal growth . They have give the desired final alignment values in Reverse dial indicator method.
If I can convert the reverse dial values to angle and offset values, I can then insert this as thermal growth values to my laser kit. This feature is available in Fixturlaser NXA,
Could someone please share a method to calculate the desired angle and offser? I would appreciate it if you can share formula or Excel sheet with conversion.
Thanks for reading this
