SKF Belt alignment tool TKBA 21 - 1

SKF Belt Alignment Tool Advanced tool allowing belt 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 21 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 lasertransmitting unit and a receiver unit. 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 21 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 transmitter to the receiver – which is mounted on the opposite pulley. The tool then corrects for vertical angle, horizontal angle and parallel misalignment – including combinations of all three. The TKBA 21 uses two red laser diodes for distances up to 3 m (10 ft). Sturdy housings, made from ABS and 2K polymers and an aluminium base help ensure assembly stability and accuracy during alignment. All components of the TKBA 21 – two red laser transmitter/ receiver units and six AAA batteries – are supplied in a sturdy carrying case. Parallel misalignment Vertical angle misalignment Horizontal angle misalignment
