Versatile tools for pulley and sprocket alignment


The SKF TKBA 10 and TKBA 20 allow pulleys and sprockets to be aligned on the side face. The unit magnetically attaches to the inside or outside face of almost any belt pulley or chain sprocket and has no small parts or targets that can get lost. A laser line is projected from the transmitter unit to the reflector unit mounted on the opposite pulley. A reference line on the reflector unit directly indicates the offset and vertical angle misalignment. The reflected laser line shown on the transmitter unit shows the horizontal angle misalignment of all three.

Features and benefits

  • Powerful magnets allow fast and easy attachment
  • Facilitates simultaneous adjustment of tension and alignment
  • Can be used on almost all machines using V belts, banded belts, ribbed belts and most other belts as well as chain sprockets
  • SKF TKBA 10 utilises a red laser and can be used for distances up to 3 m (10 ft)
  • SKF TKBA 20 utilises a highly visible green laser and can be used for distances up to 6 m (20 ft). It can even be used outdoors in sunny conditions
  • Sturdy aluminium housings help ensure assembly stability and accuracy during the alignment process

Belt-driven machinery downtime caused by misalignment is a thing of the past . . .

The SKF Belt Alignment Tool aligns the pulleys where it counts most – in the grooves. V–guides and powerful magnets allow the TMEB 2 to be fitted in the grooves of the pulley. With only two components, a laser–emitting unit and a receiver unit, the TMEB 2 is easy and fast to attach. The three–dimensional target area on the receiver unit allows the easy detection of misalignment as well as its nature; whether it is horizontal, vertical, parallel or a combination of all three. Armed with this precise information, the operator can easily make the appropriate adjustments until the laser line corresponds with the reference line on the receiver unit.

 
Versatile and user–friendly:
Powerful magnets allow fast and easy attachment
Easy–to–use, requires no special training to operate
Three–dimensional target area simplifies the alignment process
Facilitates simultaneous adjustment of tension and alignment
V–guides facilitate the alignment of a wide range of V–belt pulleys
Special side adaptor allowing alignment of multi–ribbed and timing belt pulleys as well as chain sprockets is available as accessory
A maximum operating distance of 6 meters (20 ft) makes it suitable for use in various applications
Sturdy aluminium housings provide great assembly stability and accuracy

Pinpoint accuracy with latest laser technology:
Aligns grooves of the pulley rather than its face, allowing the alignment of pulleys of unequal width or with dissimilar faces – even fits applications where the pulley face cannot be used as a reference
No trial and error. The laser position indicates the nature of misalignment allowing easy and accurate adjustment

The quick, easy and affordable laser shaft alignment tool


The TKSA 20 is an easy–to–use laser shaft alignment tool, which requires no special training to operate. Compared to traditional dial indicator methods, the shaft alignment process is greatly simplified, as no additional calculations are required in order to make the necessary adjustments.

SKF announced the introduction of the TKSA 31 shaft-alignment tool for easy laser alignment at an entry-level price. Developed for rotating machines in industrial applications, the instrument helps customers identify and correct shaft mis-alignments to improve equipment uptime and reliability, and lower maintenance costs.

The TKSA 31 and previously announced TKSA 41 are sharing the same design, but TKSA 31 has a lower price than its big brother TKSA 41. In return, the smaller version has lower measurement flexibility and is lacking the camera function that allows pictures to be added to TKSA 41 alignment reports. Both tools are designed to make shaft alignment easy and intuitive, even for operators with minimal experience.

Comprised of two measuring units with large detectors and bright lasers, the TKSA 31 reduces the need for pre-alignment and provides precise measurements, even in challenging conditions. The embedded soft-foot tool helps establish the basis for successful alignment.

The TKSA 31’s liquid crystal display (LCD) with touchscreen navigation makes alignment fast and simple, and measurements can be performed by using the well-known 9-12-3-o’clock positions with additional flexibility of 40º around each. The tool’s live view supports intuitive measurements and facilitates horizontal and vertical machine position corrections.

Because the instrument enables automatic measurements by detecting when the heads are in the correct position, operators can use both hands to rotate and hold the shafts in place. After each alignment, the TKSA 31 automatically generates a customized report with notes about the application, and each report can be exported as a portable document format (PDF) file. The built-in machine library helps to organize alignment reports and provides an overview of all machines.
