Learn to Apply Alignment & Measurement Technology for Practical Solutions

Our Alignment CoursesBrunson Training

Brunson Instrument Company's training courses are unique to the industry. That's because our application engineers have direct experience with many types of metrology instruments and their application in many different industries, including aircraft and aerospace, printing, rolling mill, power generation, and others. You'll receive first-rate, hands-on training from these very same, experienced application engineers. The knowledge and skills acquired will pay you back many times over by allowing you to make high quality and traceable measurements to evaluate any given project, or through the proper alignment of your equipment and the increased productivity of your machinery.

Our Instructors

Each course leader is a field-experienced AE (applications engineer). This team of engineers has traveled the world providing critical alignment and measurement solutions for major industries including aerospace, automotive, experimental physics, machine tool, marine, paper/ converting/ printing, petrochemical, plastics, power generation, primary metals, and rubber. Brunson instructors have tremendous practical knowledge of the problems associated with precision measurement and the ability to deliver clear, concise presentations.

At Our Facility… or Yours

Our courses are taught in our Kansas City locations where we have all of the equipment required. However, we also bring our courses to the location of your choice. There are many advantages to bringing our training staff to your facility:

  • Customized courses are available to accommodate your specific needs. Topics can be focused to fit constricted time frames or expanded to cover additional needs. We can design a format that caters exclusively to you and your alignment needs.
  • The Brunson engineer instructing the course at your facility can make specific, on-the-spot alignment procedure recommendations and focus on these during the training session.
  • Students are able to work on and discuss the actual machinery they will be responsible for measuring.
  • Time can be scheduled for the instructor to visit with other departments of your company, providing a great opportunity to address questions and concerns regarding how alignment affects other departments.

On-Site Training Options

Customized Alignment (Optical Tooling) training can easily be arranged at your location. The price includes all training costs, instructor's expenses (airfare, lodging, meals and ground transportation). Curriculum is based upon your requirements as determined in a consultation prior to the course. Customer supplies all required equipment. (If additional equipment is needed, it can be rented for additional charge, with a 6-student maximum.)

Hands-on training… It's the only way to learn

Brunson Instrument Company's courses take the mystery out of measurement and alignment. In these courses you will learn what techniques are available, and how they can provide you with flexible and powerful solutions to industrial alignment and measurement problems.

We cover basic principles so you can understand how each instrument works. We give you a clear and practical knowledge of operation. You will develop good habits to produce accurate, repeatable measurements and minimize operator errors. You will be able to determine what equipment best meets your alignment and measurement needs.

Hands-on training is the key to understanding and remembering these techniques. You will master proven, critical alignment and measurement procedures, and be able to focus them on your applications. With this knowledge, you can even employ metrology ideals in the design phase of fabrication, assembly, or installation procedures- as well as for periodic maintenance. You can establish realistic measurement accuracies, and then develop a measurement strategy to achieve your desired results.
