For a reliable power transmission of drive belts, belt quality, correct installation and subsequent maintenance are essential.
With perfect supplies to set the preload and the verification of the correct installation of the V-belt, you can rely on our years of experience.
You are sure of an ideal operation for a lifetime.
If the V-belt pulleys are not set up correctly, belt edges wear out more easily. The additional wear leads to clogged filters and early belt failure.
There are several methods to check the tension of a drive belt.
The higher the belt quality, the more accurate the measurement technology should be.
The AT-1 laser allows a precise alignment of the belt pulleys. The alignment with the AT-1 laser is clearly faster and easier than the classic methods with a ruler and a string.
Due to the integrated magnets, the device sticks to all magnetic pulleys. As it weighs light it can be attached with double-sided adhesive tape on not-magnetic pulleys.
The pulley diameter should be bigger than 60 mm. With the maximum measuring distance being 10 m also the bigger drives can be aligned without any problems.
The measuring instrument easily fits into a shirt pocket and can be attached with a clip, so it doesn´t fall out. The pointing arm can be completely folded.
The Optikrik is put on the belt before force is exerted on the pressure area with one finger until there is a clicking sound.
Then ease the pressure, hold the measurement instrument at an angle and mark the intersection between pointing arm and top edge with the thumbnail. Turn the device around to read the scale.
The strand forces are shown directly. You should compare these with the alignment.
The Tension Tester is an easier but effective instrument for preload measurement.
The O-ring for force is set to zero. The O-ring for deflection is set to the calculated value. With the measuring instrument, the belt in the middle is aligned so far that the lower O-ring is aligned with another belt or a rubber . Then the required force can be read on the upper O-ring.
According to the specifications of the drive calculation you can retighten or relieve the drive.
The Sonic 308C preload tester guarantees a simple and extremely accurate measurement of belt tension by analyzing the sound waves emitted by the belt by means of a sensor. It processes the input signal and then digitally displays the accurate belt tension measurements.
The bias tester from Gates is user-friendly: it has only one button, is compact and computer-controlled. It always measures the belt tension very precisely and comes with a practical user manual.
The Sonic Tension Meter 508C measures the belt tension acoustics.
After turning it on, the device automatically measures the surrounding noises. After entering the weight in the meter and the belt tightening length it is then activated. The instrument now measures the vibrations (in the range from 10 – 5.000Hz) and then shows the resulting belt tension and frequency.
Thanks to the illuminated screen the device can be used in every situation. The measuring results can be easily saved on an internal memory.
Only a perfect set up belt drive completes the necessary work. If the drive belt tension is too strong, the bearings would wear out easily and faster . If the drive belt tension is not strong enough, the required performance cannot be transmitted.
A deficient pulley alignment leads to a higher belt wear. These problems can be avoided with our high-quality supplies.
Used to measure the wear of poly wedge discs. Wear of ribs, belt thickness, and cracks can be detected with the PIX Pentagon.
Used to test the belt profile.
Specifically used for testing the groove profile of various conventional pulleys as well as discs with double grooves.
For measuring the belt length if the size is bad or unreadable.
Robust, high-efficiency maintenance tool used to correct misaligned pulleys on a drive for the longest possible service life of the belt.
Serves for manual, reliable correction of the belt tension. (Tension Tester)
It is used to correct the voltage factor of a drive and thus helps the user to maintain the optimum belt tension.
This device works on the principle of frequency measurement.
A complete set of tools required for servicing drives.
A lightweight, handy case made of solid ABS plastic protects the tools during transport and provides clarity.
Consisting of: PIX digital voltage tester, calipers, angle gauge, pulley gauges, pulley alignment laser tool, voltage tester, tape measure, flashlight, calculator, user manual and pen.
