X-990 Industry-leading technology and innovations:

The world’s most advanced shaft alignment technology

For over 50 years, we have been providing highly accurate alignment systems to many different industries and applications. We started in the machine tool industry where tolerances are high and applications are difficult, and then 30 years ago we developed the world’s first 4-axis shaft alignment system. All of that experience and knowledge has gone into the design of the X-990 Wireless 5-axis Shaft Alignment System, resulting in the most accurate and yet easy-to use tool in its class.


Advanced Unidirectional Dual-Beam™ Technology

This innovative technology provides an amazing ± 12º of angular range. Utilizing 2 unidirectional laser beams (2 lasers, 1 direction), it solves the rough-in (pre-alignment) problem with “cross-fire” lasers (2 lasers, 2 directions) and makes aligning machines amazingly fast and easy, especially on long-distance applications. The result? More jobs done in less time and happier managers!


No rough-in/pre-alignment needed

All “cross-fire” laser alignment systems require a rough-in (pre-alignment) of the machine before the system be able to take data. With Dual-Beam™ technology’s 2 unidirectional laser beams and a single 33 mm sensor, you don’t need to rough-in the motor to get it to take data. You get the same ±5 degrees of measuring range from 2 in. to 30 ft. (50 mm to 10 m), unlike the “cross-fire” kits that have virtually no measuring range beyond 5 ft. (1.5 m). So just slap on the brackets, laser and target and get to work!




Ultra-high fixed angular-measuring resolution, great for close-coupled applications

With “cross-fire” laser technology, the angular resolution varies with distance. Ironically it’s the close coupled applications that cause the most problems for angular accuracy for these systems. With our Dual-Beam™ technology, you get the same high angular resolution at 2 in. (50 mm) between heads as you get at 30 ft. (10 m), and our angular resolution is 15x higher than the highest angular spec.


Duo-Plane™ realtime move screen: alignment corrections without shaft rotation

The Duo-Plane™ realtime move screen and 5-axis target allow you to view a live alignment screen for both the vertical and horizontal planes (4 axes) simultaneously without having to rotate the shafts. You can also leave the shafts at nearly any rotation angle. This is critically important on large machine applications where rotating the shafts is difficult or tightening the bolts can create horizontal movement of the machine, causing you to have to redo the alignment.


Ultra-accuracy means 2x faster alignments

Critical machinery demands the best the industry has to offer and the X-990 platform is up to the task. Super-linear PSD technology and 500-point linearization reduce the error rate to <0.15%, which is up to 15x higher than our competitors, giving you the confidence that the motor is aligned as accurately as possible. Higher accuracy also means better repeatability and more accurate shim calculations so you don’t have to keep doing the alignment over and over again. Shim Once, Move Once™!


Remote tech support

Utilizing the power of Windows, our tech support department can log on remotely to the tablet, via WiFi and the Internet.


Easy-Guide™ navigation with onboard manual and training videos

Our Couple6 software features our Easy-Guide™ navigation with its easy-to-follow, high-quality screens, leading users through each stage of the alignment. And if you forget how to do something, the manual and training videos are built right into the software! With software this easy to use, a lot of customers start using the X-990 kit right out of the box!


5-year unconditional warranty & low cost of ownership

With no hidden warranty fees like other systems, our 5 Year Unconditional Warranty is really that: no conditions! As long as you don’t damage it by abuse, then if something goes wrong, we replace or fix it. That’s it. We also don’t charge any software maintenance fees. Software updates are free for the life of the product!


Faster Setup, Faster Alignments

With the Hamar Laser® X-990 laser shaft alignment tool the bracket posts are pre-aligned to the brackets. Just attach the brackets, slide on the laser/target and adjust the laser into the window and in 2-3 minutes, you’re ready to take data!

  • Duo-Plane™ Realtime Move Screen

    Alignment values update as you adjust the motor in all 4 axes (in H &V measurement planes) in real time. This avoids the need to retake data when switching to the Horizontal measurement plane since you can see that updating while you add shims!

  • Spacer Shafts

    Spacer (jack) shaft alignments have different data formats. We offer 7 data formats to match up with OEM alignment specs.

  • Onboard Manuals and Videos

    Our manual is built right into Couple6 software and is indexed to the currently viewed page. We also uploaded our training videos onto the tablet.

  • Measurement Results Popup

    Click on a set of alignment data to display color-code alignment results. Red means Out of Tolerance, yellow means Good and green indicates Excellent. Foot values are also displayed.

  • Base/Bolt Bound™

    Enter dimension of the pump, and then lock different combinations of the motor and pump feet to see how it affects the alignment. The graphics and shim values automatically update with each click.

  • Thermal Growth Modeling

    Enter thermal growth values at the coupling or the feet to offset the alignment, and the motor graphics will update to show the effects. Or enter temp changes at the feet, select the material to calculate the alignment effect at the coupling. Great for “what-if modeling”!

  • Machine Train Program

    Take data on up to 10 machines and the Train Module will calculate the shims/moves that minimizes the moves. Click on any machine to update the shim/moves of other components.

  • Flip It™ Feature

    Couple6 allows the user to flip the motor graphics to match the pump/motor orientation without having to turn the display upside down!

  • Vertical Motor Program

    The industry’s only vertical alignment display with live graphical displays of the motor’s alignment along with shim values for all bolt-hole locations.

  • Move Screen Coupling View

    For those more accustomed to gap/offset methods, we added a view right at the coupling to help aid interpreting the results.

  • Soft Foot Check

    On-screen, easy-to-follow procedure for checking Soft Foot. Automatically selects the “problem” foot and calculates the shim to fix it.

  • Data History Table

    For saving data for multiple alignments and keeping track of data trends. Easy dropdown list to catagorize the data.You can even average sets of data together before going to the Move Screen.

  • Manual/Timed Recording App

    For recording shaft runout or thermal growth. Has a single-point recording mode or a time recording mode. Data is saved in an Excel format for easy uploading and analysis. A report shows min/max, a graph and a table of data.

  • Flatness Measurement

    Using our A-987 Base or our more accurate L-730/L-750 Leveling Lasers with our A-1519-2.4ZB Target to measure the flatness of sole plates and other surfaces. Couple6 calculates the Best Fit plane for the data to provide the overall flatness values. A report shows the flatness TIR, a graph and a table of data.

  • Straightness Measurement

    Using our A-987 Base, you can use our shaft alignment lasers to check the vertical/horizontal straightness of rails and surfaces. Couple6 calculates the Best Fit line for the data to provide the overall straightness values. A report shows the straightness TIR, a graph and a table of data.

Couple6 measurement modes

  • Auto Clock

    A standard feature, making coupled alignment amazingly easy. The target detects shaft rotation and automatically selects the clock location to record up to 8 data points. More data points mean better accuracy and quicker alignments!

  • Auto Sweep™

    Start rotating the shafts and the accelerometer detects the movement and automatically starts collecting data at 16 readings/sec. Stop rotating the shafts and Couple6 calculates the misalignment. More data means more accurate alignment data and less rework!

  • Point Mode

    Rotate the shafts to any clock location and press Record to take a data point. Collect as few as 3 points and up to 100+ to generate alignment results. Very useful for noisy environments.

  • Uncoupled Swipe™ Mode

    Makes taking data on uncoupled shafts much easier. Rotate the laser to a clock position and then sweep the target by it, where it automatically records the data point. Collect as few as 3 points and up to 100+ to generate alignment results.

  • Arc Mode

    An offshoot of Auto Sweep™, Arc Mode allows you to start at any clock location, start your sweep, stop to clear obstructions and hit continue to keep taking data. Great for those problem applications with lots of obstructions getting in the way.

  • Vertical Pump

    Customized graphics make taking data very easy for vertical motors. Just click on a clock location and rotate the laser/target to that point and hit record. Customized vertical move screen graphics make the alignment part a lot easier too!
