Belt Alignment Tools


Optimize the Perfect Order Planning

Pulley misalignment can increase wear on pulleys and belts as well as increasing the noise and vibration level that can result in unplanned machinery downtime. Another side effect of increased vibration is premature bearing failure. This too can cause unplanned machinery downtime


Production Planning

The SKF alignment tools allow pulleys, sprockets and V-belt pulleys to be aligned. The unit magnetically attaches to almost any belt pulley, chain sprocket or the grooves of a pulley and has no small parts or targets that can get lost. With only two components, a laser–emitting unit and a receiver unit, the belt alignment tool is easy and fast to attach. The three–dimensional target area on the receiver unit allows the easy detection of misalignment as well as its nature; whether it is horizontal, vertical, parallel or a combination of all three.

  • Three-dimensional target area simplifies the alignment process

  • Facilitates simultaneous adjustment of tension and alignment

  • V-guides facilitate the alignment of a wide range of V-belt pulleys

  • Powerful magnets allow fast and easy attachment

  • Can be used on almost all machines using V belts, banded belts, ribbed belts and most other belts as well as chain sprockets

  • Aligns grooves of a V-belt pulley rather than its face, allowing optimum alignment of pulleys of unequal width or with dissimilar faces.

  • Sturdy aluminium housings help ensure assembly stability and accuracy during the alignment process


SKF can supply experienced alignment service teams to tackle the most complex rotating and geometrical alignment jobs. This service is supported by a dedicated SKF alignment competence centre and a database of procedures for handling difficult alignment jobs, using the latest technology alignment equipment. In addition, our experienced alignment teams can assist in installation and machine alignment.
