The SKF BeltAlign TMEB 2 is a laser-driven belt alignment tool for industries that use pulley and belt drive systems. One of the common reasons for unplanned downtime of belt-driven machinery is pulley misalignment, which can increase wear on pulleys and belts, as well as raise vibration and noise levels, leading to breakdowns. Another side effect of increased vibration is premature bearing failure. The new tool aligns pulleys in the grooves. V-guides and powerful magnets allow the BeltAlign to be fitted in the grooves of the pulley. With only two components, it is easy to attach. A three-dimensional target area on the receiver detects horizontal, vertical and parallel misalignment.
