Comtest ­introduces new shaft alignment tool

December 2015 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Comtest has launched the Fluke 830 laser shaft alignment tool, specifically engineered for the precision alignment of rotating shafts.

The instrument offers simple functionality and fast, accurate and actionable answers. Unlike the straight-edge method or dial indicators, the Fluke 830 performs complicated alignment calculations automatically, which gives users the answers needed to align the machine. An enhanced user interface provides easy format results that do not require extensive alignment knowledge. The 'all-in-one' result screen shows both coupling results and feet corrections (vertical and horizontal) in real terms, allowing for corrective alignment action. Other features include:

• Single laser measurement technology – reduced errors from backlash resulting in better data accuracy.

• Intuitive guided user interface for easy alignment.

• Compass measurement mode for flexible, reliable and repeatable measurements using an activated electronic inclinometer.

• Dynamic machine tolerance check for continuous evaluation of alignment adjustments.

• Unique extend mode handles gross misalignment by virtually increasing laser detector size.

• Data protection with auto save and resume capability.

Since machine downtime is costly, test repeatability is critical. The Fluke 830 uses a patented single laser precision alignment system that provides accurate and repeatable measurement results ensuring that misalignment problems are properly addressed.
