Lovejoy Inc., Downers Grove, Ill. and VibrAlign Inc., Richmond, Va., have developed a strategic alliance to create improved educational opportunities for users of couplings and shaft alignment tools. In addition, the two companies are partnering to bring a traveling educational series to several locations in the next two months.
Founded in 1900, Lovejoy specializes in flexible coupling design and development. VibrAlign was founded in 1983 and today specializes in shaft alignment. The two copies will share their respective knowledge and expertise to enhance both organization’s communications and training efforts. For example, VibrAlign and Lovejoy will share educational content between their resource websites, www.couplings.com and the Alignment Resource Center atwww.shaftalignment.net.
The main aspect of the joint effort will be a new and improved “Realigning America Tour” with seminars to be held in seven cities across the United States between November 12 and December 10, from 7:30 to 3:30. They are free and lunch is provided. The seminars will feature content on coupling and alignment issues to help maintenance professionals solve their alignment and coupling issues. Attendees can present coupling and alignment challenges and problems they have encountered in their systems upon registration, so instructors can address such issues.
