Laser shaft alignment tool


Fluke has introduced an easy-to-use Laser Shaft Alignment tool that provides fast, accurate and actionable answers to keep plants up and running.

The Fluke 830 features
• Single Laser Measurement Technology which reduces errors from backlash, resulting in better data accuracy
• Compass Measurement Mode which enables flexible, reliable and repeatable measurements using an activated electronic inclinometer
• Dynamic Machine Tolerance Check which provides continuous evaluation of alignment adjustments so the user knows when the machine is in the acceptable range, and,
• Unique Extend Mode which offers unlimited measurement ranges to handle gross misalignment scenarios
The new Fluke 830 performs the complicated alignment calculations automatically and provides the answers needed to quickly align a machine. This eliminates difficult calculations and guesswork associated with traditional alignment methods and reduces unnecessary replacement parts, repair time and unplanned downtime.

The Fluke 830 Laser Shaft Alignment tool has been designed to simplify shaft alignment with an intuitive guided user interface and step-by-step machine set up process. All the user has to do is set-up, measure and diagnose. The 4-level severity scale compares the machine to industry accepted machine tolerances and provides specific, actionable repair recommendations.

Unlike using the straight-edge method or dial indicators, the Fluke 830 performs the complicated alignment calculations, providing the answers needed to quickly align a machine and get the plant up and running again fast. An enhanced user interface provides easy to understand results that do not require extensive alignment knowledge and the unique “All-in-One” result screen shows both coupling results and feet corrections (vertical and horizontal) in real terms making it easy to take corrective action.
