PIX-X’Align® Laser-guided pulley alignment tool is a robust and highly effective maintenance tool, used to correct the misalignment of pulleys in a drive, to help the user to obtain the maximum service life of the Belt.
Precise alignment of drives is an indispensable requisite for augmenting the performance and life of Belt drives. Misaligned pulleys are a common problem in Belt driven machines. Pulleys that are not properly aligned cause increase in the noise, vibration levels, uneven tensioning of the Belts. This can further result in Belt slippage, premature Belt failure, wearing-out of the pulleys, expensive downtime of the machine, short equipment life, and inefficient operation of the drive. Hence, a well-aligned drive system is a solution to avoid such problems in obtaining optimum Belt performance. Traditional, low-tech methods on today’s precision machinery involve plenty of trials and error, naked-eye observation, approximation and estimation. Hence, the major disadvantages of traditional Belt and Pulley alignment include both inaccuracy and wasted effort. All produce a wide margin for error, which is unacceptable for precision pulley alignment. However, in today’s aggressive global market, it is genuinely not affordable to gamble the productivity and profitability on the naked-eye observations. The Laser alignment is the industry standard method for accurately realigning Belts, pulleys, sheaves, sprocket drives, and other wear components. PIX Laser alignment instrument presents usability, accuracy and durability on the job that is unparalleled by any other laser pulley alignment tools.
