By properly positioning the fixed scroll relative to the crankcase, it is ensured that the non-rotation coupling is properly positioned relative to the fixed scroll.
The precision hole is drilled relative to a datum on both the fixed scroll and the crankcase such that the holes will be properly positioned relative to the datum such that when they are aligned, it is ensured that the fixed scroll and crankcase are properly orientated relative to each other.

 Oil-free scroll compressor - Patent 5358387
A motor or motors are provided to rotate the scrolls in a same direction and at a same speed, whereby a gas is compressed in a compressing space formed between the scrolls and discharged to outside through a central discharge port formed in the end plate of one of the scrolls.
In the oil-free scroll compressor, no lubricant oil is supplied to the compressing space formed between the scrolls and, therefore, small clearances are held between the wraps of these scrolls and between the top of the wrap of one of the scrolls and the bottom surface opposed thereto of the other scroll.
However, the screw type compressor is rather suitable for use as a compressor having a capacity higher than intermediate capacity, and it is actually difficult to produce an oil-free screw compressor having a capacity lower than 15 KW because it has a lowered performance and an increased temperature of discharged air.
