Shaft alignment tool accessories

The SKF Shaft Alignment Tools TKSA series are comprehensive tools and suitable for many alignment jobs. The following accessories are available to further expand the usability and allow alignments of an even wider range of applications.
Extensions chains
Extensions chains (accessory for shaft alignment tools)

Extension chains can be connected to the supplied mounting chains to increase their length. Longer chains enable alignments with larger shaft or coupling diameters. If one set of extension chains is not enough, two sets can be combined or a magnetic V-bracket can be used.

Rods
Extensions chains (accessory for shaft alignment tools)

Additional rods can be attached to the supplied rods to make the rods longer. Such an extension of rods is useful for applications with large coupling diameters where the laser lines of the measuring heads need to look over the coupling.

Magnetic V-brackets
Extensions chains (accessory for shaft alignment tools)

Magnetic V-brackets are mounted on the shaft or coupling with strong magnets. They are used for mounting the measuring units on the shaft flange or on the side of the coupling when chains cannot be used. Magnetic brackets might not allow stable mounting on small shafts.

Sliding brackets
Extensions chains (accessory for shaft alignment tools)

Sliding brackets can be used for alignments of shafts that cannot be rotated. The sliding bracket have wheels that slide on the shaft.

TKSA 51-SLDBK1 × Adjustable sliding bracket for use
with shaft diameters >30 mm (1.2 in.)
or bore diameters >120 mm (4.7 in.),
supplied without rods
TKSA SLDBK2 × Wheels to be used with standard
V-bracket (TKSA VBK), supplied
without V-bracket

Note: Photos are for illustrative purposes and vary by product.

Offset brackets
Extensions chains (accessory for shaft alignment tools)

Offset brackets are used when the space for the alignment is too limited to mount the measuring heads on the original bracket. The offset brackets are mounted on the rods of mounted bracket and allow an offset of the measuring heads parallel to the shaft to increase the available space.

TKSA EXT502 × Offset brackets of 50 mm (2 in.)
compatible with standard (TKSA VBK)
and magnetic V-brackets (TKSA MAGVBK)

Note: Photos are for illustrative purposes and vary by product.

Magnetic base
Extensions chains (accessory for shaft alignment tools)

Measuring units can be mounted directly on large diameter shafts with the magnetic base. It is more convenient to use the magnetic base on large shaft diameters than multiple extension chains.
