SKF Belt alignment tool TKBA 11 - 1

SKF Belt Alignment Tool Precision tool allowing pulley and chain drive alignment Belt-driven machinery is used in many industries and applications – including HVAC equipment, milling machines, compressors and camshafts. Aligning belt drives and chain drives accurately helps to reduce wear on belts, pulleys, chains and sprockets. As well as extending belt and pulley life, precise alignment also reduces machine vibration. Typical benefits of this include improved machine performance, a reduction in unscheduled downtime and lower energy costs. SKF’s TKBA 11 Belt alignment tool is part of a series of tools offering a simple way to do this. It accurately aligns pulleys and sprockets and corrects for various types of misalignment. The tool has two components; a laser-emitting unit and three passive targets. Each is attached quickly and easily – using a powerful magnet – to the inside or outside face of a belt pulley or chain sprocket. The TKBA 11 can be applied to most machines that use V belts, banded belts and ribbed belts – as well as those with chain sprockets. A laser line is projected from the emitting unit to the passive targets - which are mounted on the opposite pulley. The tool then corrects for vertical angle, horizontal angle and parallel misalignment – including combinations of all three. The TKBA 11 uses a red laser diode and can be used for distances up to 3 m (10 ft). A sturdy housing, made from ABS and 2K polymers and an aluminium base helps ensure assembly stability and accuracy during alignment. It runs on 3 × AAA batteries for 32 hours of continuous operation. All components of the TKBA 11 – a single red laser emitter, three passive targets and three AAA batteries – are supplied in a sturdy carrying case. Parallel misalignment Vertical angle misalignment Horizontal angle misalignment
