Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment Tool
The Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment Tool is the ideal test tool to precision-align rotating shafts in your facility.
It's a known fact - all rotating machinery is susceptible to misalignment. If you're still using rulers and dial indicators to ensure your rotating machinery is properly aligned, you could be losing thousands of dollars per year in replacement bearing costs, hours of unnecessary repair time, and crippling unplanned downtime, not to mention taking years off your machine's useful life.
The Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment tool is easy-to-use, giving you fast, accurate and actionable answers that will keep your plant up and running. When it comes to laser shaft alignment, data is good but answers are better.
Unlike using the straightedge method or dial indicators the Fluke 830 performs the complicated alignment calculations for you, meaning you'll have the answers you need to quickly align your machine and get your plant up and running fast. An enhanced user interface provides easy to understand results that don't require extensive alignment knowledge and the unique "All-in-One" result screen that shows you both coupling results and feet corrections (vertical and horizontal) in real terms making it easy to take corrective action.
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 so you can be assured you're addressing misalignment problems properly.
Evaluate alignment in three simple steps
Step-by-step input of the machine dimensions.
Rotate the shaft and receive instant measurement verification.
Actual correction numbers are given along with a 4-level color severity scale indicating whether your machine is misaligned
Handling gross misalignment
When machines are well outside of accepted tolerances it can be difficult to get accurate alignment readings. For these gross mis-alignment problems the Fluke 830 uses a unique “Extend” mode allowing for better measurement accuracy by automatically increasing the effective sensor measurement area. Increasing the sensor measurement area virtually allows the Fluke 830 to address gross misalignment quickly without the need to perform an initial rough alignment.
Additional features and benefits:
Fluke predictive maintenance tools help keep your plant up and running
- Clock mode for vertical & flanged machines
- Machine Flip to flip image of machine on screen for alignment jobs with obstructions
- Resume mode to save your work and return back at the same step (anytime you need)
Fluke offers a complete line of predictive maintenance tools designed to help keep your plant up and running. Whether you’re using a Fluke vibration tester to diagnose fault and severity, or a Fluke infrared camera to evaluate machine health, Fluke predictive maintenance tools are designed to give you the answers you need to reduce unplanned downtime and decrease repair costs. The Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment Tool uses a similar measurement process as the Fluke 810 Vibration Tester making laser shaft alignment as easy as 1-2-3. Just set up the unit, perform the test, and evaluate the diagnosis.
Using a Fluke infrared camera you can quickly identify possible machine health problems, and then use a Fluke vibration tester to further diagnose the problem and determine whether or not mis-alignment is present. Using the Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment tool you can get the answers you need to correct misalignment, and then further verify your results with your Fluke infrared camera or vibration tester to check the machine health.
