The Alignment Field Guide

Spanning over 250 pages, The Alignment Field Guide features articles covering a variety of shaft alignment topics, including common alignment issues, shims and hold down hardware, coupling alignments, belt and sheave alignments, and tips on saving time and money during your alignment procedure. The book also features full-color photos of alignments from the field, as well as illustrations to help explain abstract concepts.

The contents of the book were curated from VibrAlign’s audience-acclaimed “Alignment Blog” by the VibrAlign Shaft Alignment Training team. Out of the hundreds of blog posts featured on the site, just under one hundred were selected to be included in the book, chosen by the team to be the most helpful and/or most popular among readers.

The Alignment Field Guide is released following the update and redesign of the “Alignment Blog”, which was given a new name and home on the VibrAlign website to better encompass VibrAlign’s recently-expanded product offerings. The new “VibrAlign Blog” can be found at, and features articles on machinery diagnostics, condition monitoring, and machine vibration, in addition to shaft alignment.

The Alignment Field Guide is available for purchase on for $19.95.

    Hello good afternoon,

    My name is Luis Silva, since I want to congratulate you on the blog, the content is quality.

    I noticed that they have the book The Alignment Field Guide for sale on amazon for $ 19.95.

    I have a problem and get your book and I wish you could help me. I live in portugal and I can not order the book, how should I do it?

    I work in the area for more than 12 years, mainly in alignments in the pulp and paper industry.

    I await a brief response from you.

    Thank you

    Luis Silva

    Hi Sir, I want to purchase your guide book from Amazon. But Amazon is pricing at USD$800+. This is madness. How do we purchase it at $19.95?

    Our Field Alignment Guide is currently out of print. Our books currently being sold on Amazon are offered by resellers-individuals who have purchased our books to resell them at a profit.

    Please be patient- we intend to print The Field Alignment Guide again. In the meantime, please take a look at our blog at All of the materials in the book are there.
