A heavy-duty, precision fixture for realistic training in shaft alignment. Patterned after a common ANSI centrifugal pump, the device allows for training using all common alignment techniques and tools. Each element can be adjusted to create unique alignment problems. The training aid, coupled with a textbook and a Use/Exercise Guide, creates a complete, in-depth, hands-on course in precision alignment techniques used in industry.
7-Gauge, formed-steel baseplate.
Heavy-duty, welded aluminum driver and driven elements.
Allows for alignment using all common methods and alignment tools.
Multiple "motor" positions allow for use of many coupling types.
Dimensions based on a common ANSI centrifugal pump.
Rigid construction allows alignment to .001".
Requires a minimal number of hand tools.
Flanged bearings allow changes in angular and parallel misalignment.
All fasteners easily accessible and replaceable.
Motor attachment points include steel threaded inserts.
Replaceable shafts. Bent shafts are easily installed.
3/4" Diameter shafting with keyways.
Uses size "A" shims.
High-durability, powder-coated surfaces allow for repeated use and rough handling.
Can be used with or without jacking bolts.
All components can be mounted on related bench and workstation products.
Packaging for shipment via motor freight.
