At Tern Technologies, we have provided alignment services for over 34 years. With a range of global customer locations and a full team of engineers, technicians, and support staff, we are able to accurately provide your alignment services in the time frame you need. From optical, laser and mechanical to gas and steam turbine alignment, your application is our focus.

We offer a variety of machinery alignment services.  Shaft alignment is what most people think of when they hear alignment.  Shaft alignment includes single couplings, multi-coupling machine train, and thermal growth studies to determine alignment at the machine hot running condition.

Another type of alignment offered is internal alignment, which is used in gas turbines, steam turbines, compressor diaphragms, crankcase main bearings, cylinder to crossheads, mixers, and extruders.

Alignment is one of the most important aspects of rotating equipment health.  Having proper machine alignment can increase efficiency, minimize vibration, and reduce component wear on parts like bearings, seals, and couplings.  All these items lead to better reliability of your equipment and can increase the time between repairs and overhauls.

Among our typical applications for alignment services include lathes and grinders, centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, motors and generators, paper machinery, gearboxes and clutches, and more.
