Cardan shafts are especially difficult to align because of the many angles involved. Some people don’t even know alignment of those angles are necessary! This very complex alignment can prove extremely tricky, even for the most seasoned alignment engineer or technician. Pruftechnik, the world’s leader in laser alignment and condition monitoring equipment, has simplified cardan shaft alignment using their new Rotalign Touch. Come see a mock alignment on a cardan shaft and see how you can master this precise science with only a few simple touches.|

|Thursday||11:00am||Advanced Mechanical Enterprises||Listen & Learn with Pruftechnik: Vibguard, Vibxpert II & Sonochek: Predictive and preventative maintenance by utilizing condition monitoring is the most efficient way to streamline your maintenance budget. Vibration analysis provides readings that give very specific data that can detail your machinery’s health, allowing you to become proactive, rather than reactive when failures occur. The VIBXPERT II and the VIBGUARD by PRUFTECHNIK allow for the quick, easy, economical and efficient collection of data on your equipment. The VIBGUARD allows for continuous data collection that’s automatically transferred to the people analyzing it, while the VibXpert II is a simple and affordable portable unit that can be operated with minimal training. Their newest innovation, the Sonochek, can detect inaudible waves and frequencies given off by machinery, making them audible to the human ears while also giving a visual reading. This new technology can identify a damaged bearing from an early stage and can pinpoint the exact location of leaks, all of which can be pulled in a full report reading. An integrated camera and microphone allows users to comment on his/her findings and perfect the final report. During this demonstration viewers will have an inside look at how these systems collect vibration and frequency data to guide their maintenance plans.|
|12:00pm||Island Marine Electric||CMC Marine will demonstrate electric stabilizer fins and discuss the full line of electric bow thrusters and steering systems.|
|1:00pm||Telemar||Telemar will demonstrate its unique take on the ‘Glass Bridge’ console for luxury vessels, allowing visitors to see the new Telemar Glass Bridge system and experience its innovative ergonomics and touch screen. Integrating a diverse array of essential technology for safe navigation, from radar and chartplotter to windscreen wipers and horns, Telemar’s Glass Bridge delivers a unified, ultra-modern aesthetic for luxury vessel bridges.|
|2:00pm||ThrowRaft||The ThrowRaft demo will consist of a few demos with multiple devices. The TD2401 we'll do an auto inflation into a small tub of water, manual inflation, a few throw tests in the packed/inflated positions, rearm and repack, etc. We will also demonstrate how the device fits into the mounting bracket and the attachments of multiple accessories such as strobe lights, PLB's, etc. We will also demonstrate The Survivor MOB personal safety life raft in the same manor as the TD2401.|
