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.

Extension Chains

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.

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

Rods

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.

TKSA ROD150 4 × threaded rods of 150 mm (5.9 in.)
TKSA 51-ROD80 4 × threaded rods of 80 mm (3.1 in.)
TKSA 51-ROD120 4 × threaded rods of 120 mm (4.7 in.)
 

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

Magnetic V-brackets

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.

Spindle brackets

Spindle brackets are used to mount the measuring units on spindle of lathes for example.

2 × threaded rods of 80 mm (3.2 in.)
 

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

Sliding brackets

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

Ordering designations Content and description
TKSA 51-SLDBK 1 × Adjustable sliding bracket for use 
with shaft diameters >30 mm (1.2 in.) 
or bore diamters >120 mm (4.7 in.), 
supplied without rods
TKSA SLDBK 2 × 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

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.

Ordering designations Content and description
TKSA EXT50 2 × Offset brackets of 50 mm (2 in.) 
compatible with standard (TKSA VBK) 
and magnetic V-brackets (TKSA MAGVBK) 
and magnetic base (TKSA MAGBASE)
TKSA EXT100 2 × Offset brackets of 100 mm (3.9 in.) 
compatible with standard (TKSA VBK) 
and magnetic V-brackets (TKSA MAGVBK) 
and magnetic base (TKSA MAGBASE)
TKSA 51-EXT50 1 × Offset bracket 50 mm (2 in.), 
supplied with 2 × rods 80 mm (3.2 in.)
 

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

Magnetic base

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.

Ordering designations Content and description
TKSA MAGBASE 2 × Magnetic bases 
IMPORTANT: Offset bracket (TKSA EXT50 
or TKSA EXT100) is required for usage 
and needs to be ordered separately.
