Laser Straightness Measurement

Nicol & Andrew can measure straightness profiles of machine bases, turbine casings, etc., in two axes. We use the laser beam as a reference, and the distance deviation between the laser beam and the measurement object is measured in two or more positions.

Laser Shaft Alignment

Using highly advanced and precise dual laser alignment equipment Nicol & Andrew can quickly diagnose and improve your machines’ running condition and reliability. Shaft alignment is one of the mission-critical components for optimum performance, and shaft alignments can be measured, aligned and documented in record time. 

Laser Bore Alignment

Nicol & Andrew can perform detailed precision on-site laser surveys of misaligned bores in pumps, compressors, engine blocks, turbine casings, press housings and gearboxes. Fast, accurate results are obtained and presented in an easy-to-understand manner.

Laser Circular Flatness Measurement

Nicol & Andrew carry out circular flatness measurements on machine tables, foundations, engine bedplates, flanges, slewing bearings, mounting surfaces for thrusters, rudders, and surfaces for thrust bearings.

Why Clients Use Nicol & Andrew's Hydraulics Division


We Fix Common Problems

When you have problems with your hydraulic rams, we can provide you with a quick and cost-effective solution. No matter how severely damaged your ram may be, we can provide a repair or remanufacture solution.


"Inexpensive" Not Cheap

We repair rams to their original specification using similar materials and methods as the OEM. Many OEMs and dealers rely on selling expensive spares to make a profit, but we can save you time and money by avoiding their game.


Quality Materials and Seals

We have extensive stocks of chromium-plated piston rod material and cylinder tubes, using the same high-quality materials as the original manufacturer. Our suppliers are top-notch, and we only use equivalent or improved-quality seals when repairing rams.
