Here’s the formula for better dial indicator alignments:

Earlier this year we introduced the Free Fixturlaser Dials App. The app was designed to walk the user through the reverse rim alignment process using dial indicators. We are also now offering a new Dial Indicator Kit and a Free Dials Instructional Video. Put them all together and it adds up to one sweet shaft alignment solution.

    hi
    can dial kit be used without coupling?
    there are many situations that install and remove a coupling takes a lot of time.
    we have recently bought this but it was never used because of this and we only use this for checking alignment and not when we are going to align after repair.
    is this any way to use this structure for a reverse method when coupling is not installed?
    i appreciate for your answer.

    Yes it can. Simply rotate to two shafts together to keep the dial indicator plungers on the landing pads of the brackets. If its very difficult to rotate the shaft together; at the first measurement point (9 o’clock) mark a spot on the landing pads where the dial indicator plungers contact the pad, then at the second and third measurement points line the plungers back with the mark.

    Formula for shim calculation for shaft alignment &coupling alignment.

    Whereas: S = Stationary Indicator TIR/2, M = Movable Indicator TIR/2, A = distance between S & M, B = distance from M to front foot, C = distance from front foot to rear foot.

    Front feet POSITION calculation: (M – S) divided by A times (B) plus M
    Rear feet POSITION calculation” (M – S) divided by A times (B plus C) plus M

    Positive values mean the feet are high, shims must be removed.
    Negative values mean the feet are low, shims must be added.
