The shaft alignment tool, TSKA 51, performs with a dedicated and easily downloaded app to enable precises alignment of shafts in rotating machinery across industries. It makes it quick and easy to set up motors, drives, fans, gearboxes, pulleys, and couplings, regardless of an operator's level of experience. With the tool mounted, the wirelessly connected TKSA 51 app uses real-time data to provide a live 3D view of the measuring units, allowing operators to rotate the virtual machine at will and in all directions to achieve a highly intuitive alignment process. Measurements at any angle can be made by a touch of a button or by using the system's hands-free automatic measurement function, which only requires the shaft to be rotated to the next measurement position.
