Noise, wear on pulleys, belts and bearings, vibrations and
ultimately machine downtime may all be caused by improper
pulley alignment. This can be prevented by using Gates’ new
laser alignment device, the LASER AT-1.
Currently, the method to measure misalignment is by use of a straight edge or string line held up against the pulleys. A much faster and more accurate method is ensured by Gates’ unique laser alignment tool, Laser AT-1.
Mounted in a few seconds, the laser line projected on the targets allows you to quickly ascertain and correct any misalignment. The LASER AT-1 identifies parallel as well as angular misalignment between the pulleys, and is suitable for pulley diameters of 60mm and larger. It is so light it can be mounted on non-magnetic pulleys with double sided adhesive tape and used on both horizontally and vertically mounted machines.
