Staying on the level

Aug. 9, 2001
Heavy machinery, driveshafts and countless other pieces of equipment need to be level to operate properly.

Heavy machinery, driveshafts and countless other pieces of equipment need to be level to operate properly. Wasi-Technics, a company based in Germany and represented in the U.S. by Gerich Global Resources, Englewood, Colo., offers a variety of precision levelers, including their xy-HVE Series. It uses a finely threaded top nestled in a nut base with equally fine threads. It only takes a wrench to adjust the top vertically; then it is held in place with a mounting bolt. Maximum height adjustment ranges from 9 to 55 mm. The two-axis levelers can also be adjusted horizontally, letting installers vary position by 9 to 16 mm. Each leveler can replace M4 to M48 bolts, can handle 118,000-lb loads, and is available in three material options: alloy steel with a zinc chromate finish, 301 stainless steel, and 316 stainless steel.
