SKF Alignment

Includes shaft and belt alignment tools and machinery shims

Misalignment can cause a bearing to suffer additional load, friction and vibration.

After the bearing has been mounted in an application such as a motor connected to a pump, the application should be aligned. If the application is not properly aligned, the misalignment can cause the bearing to suffer additional load, friction and vibration. These can accelerate fatigue and reduce the bearing’s, as well as other machine components, service life. Furthermore, increased vibration and friction can significantly increase energy consumption and the risk of premature failures.
