Shaft alignment tool
The TKSA 71 shaft alignment tool is designed in a compact and durable package to deliver precise measurements for a range of alignment tasks in harsh industrial environments. This versatile tool functions quickly and intuitively using six dedicated software apps tailored for different alignment jobs. The tool ultimately achieves superior alignment performance in demanding conditions by providing high measurement accuracy and excellent protection against dust and water. The tool’s simple-to-use apps (available free both for Android and iOS platforms) guide alignment processes for horizontal and vertical shafts, machine trains, and spacer shafts. Separate apps in the portfolio can assist technicians in verifying that machines are standing evenly or allow the tool to serve as a digital dial gauge for performing customized alignments with target values. Ultra-compact measuring units facilitate use in extremely narrow spaces and the units are completely sealed (IP67) to withstand dust and water. The tool takes three-position (9-12-3) measurements from a distance up to 32 ft.
