Stan Switches Shaft Alignment Teams
By Stan Riddle
I actually used our competition’s lasers for 25 years. I had never used a VibrAlign tool until I went to work for them.
I’ll tell you a little story. I came up here when I was hired and I was brought into this little training room. They had an XA and a demonstrator set up in front of me. The guy who came to introduce himself and told me he owned the company said “I’ve got to step out for a couple of minutes and make a phone call, so why don’t you just play with that thing and see what you can do with it.”
And I did my first alignment with a VibrAlign tool in eight minutes, start to finish. After that I was hooked, and I told him I would throw my old laser in the river on my way back home.
And that’s the truth.
