Correcting the Five Common Types of Misalignment



There are five main types of misalignment that can plague belts and sheaves on your equipment.
The B.A.T. Belt Alignment Tool’s patented dual, cross-firing lasers quickly and accurately identify each of them, saving you downtime on adjustments and saving your equipment from premature failure.

Parallel Misalignment

This occurs when one of the sheaves is not on a parallel plane – also known as “offset” – with the other sheave.

Vertical Angle Misalignment

Misalignment formed when the slope of one sheave is different than the slope of the other on the vertical plane.

Horizontal Angle Misalignment

This form of misalignment occurs as the sheave slope differs from the other on the horizontal plane.

Vertical Angular and Offset Misalignment

A compound misalignment, this takes place when the sheave is both offset and sloped differently on the vertical plane in comparison to the other sheave.

Horizontal Angular and Offset Misalignment

This form of compound misalignment develops when the sheave is both offset and sloped differently on the horizontal plane than the other sheave.
