The importance of an effective maintenance program cannot be overlooked because it plays such an important role in the effectiveness of process of manufacturing. The cost of regular maintenance is very small when it is compared to the cost of a major breakdown at which time there is no production. Therefore CBM offers a wide range of Maintenance Tools and equipment that supports to preserve the smooth business operation of our customers.
FAG Maintenance products range comprises tools for the mechanical, hydraulic and thermal mounting and dismounting of rolling bearings. Mechanical tools are used predominantly for smaller bearings. Medium-sized and large rolling bearings are mainly mounted and dismounted using hydraulic or thermal tools. Further, tools & equipment for Lubrication, Alignment tools, Condition monitoring.
A mounting tool set contains mounting sleeves made from aluminium and mounting rings made from plastic. An error frequently made during mounting is to transmit the mounting forces through the rolling elements and raceways. This error can be avoided by driving the inner ring onto the shaft or driving the outer ring into the housing by applying hammer blows to an appropriate mounting sleeve.
The carefully matched precision parts ensure that the forces are uniformly transmitted to the side faces of the bearing rings. Also available as individual parts.The mounting tool sets are suitable for the simple mounting of rolling bearings up to 50 mm bore. They can also be used for the mounting of sleeves, intermediate rings, seals and similar parts.
Mechanical extractors can be used to dismantle small and medium sized rolling bearings that are located with a tight fit on a shaft or in a housing. The bearing can be dismantled without damage if the extractor is in contact with the tightly fitted bearing ring. In the case of mechanical extractors, the extraction force is normally applied by means of threaded spindles.
Two-arm and three-arm extractors
Two-arm and three-arm extractors are used for the extraction of complete rolling bearings or tightly fitted inner rings.
The two-arm extractor PULLER-2ARM and three-arm extractor PULLER-3ARM can also be used to extract other parts such as gears.
The induction heating devices HEATER for bearings up to a mass of 1200 kg have been improved further in terms of their performance capability and safety compared with their predecessors. They can also be used to heat sealed and greased rolling bearings. In addition to the tabletop devices HEATER10 to HEATER300, the range also includes the standalone devices HEATER600 and HEATER1200 for larger rolling bearings. HEATER300 can also be converted to a mobile unit by means of accessories.
The scope of delivery of the induction heating devices HEATER covers a basic setup for the initial applications. The rolling bearing to be heated is either placed orizontally on the support rails or is suspended on the ledge.
Three-section extraction plates PULLER-TRISECTION can be used with hydraulic and mechanical extractors. These allow the extraction of complete bearings, tightly fitted inner rings and other components. The load capacity and extraction force are precisely matched to each other. The extraction claws grip directly under the screw studs of the extraction plates and give uniform distribution of force. Even where parts have a tight fit, there is no tilting or bending. The high extraction forces are concentrated on the bearing inner ring. In general, the bearing and shaft remain intact and can be used again. The extraction plates can be fitted under the bearing with just a few movements.
The hydraulic extractors, are used where higher extraction forces are required. These devices allow rolling bearings, gears, sleeves and many other shrink fitted parts to be quickly and easily dismounted. For larger grip depths, longer extraction arms are available (accessories). Operating personnel can be protected by means of a safety grid or a safety cover.
The advantageous features of hydraulic extractors are as follows: Parts under mechanical load are made from high quality chromium-molybdenum steel, the smooth-running piston is made from chromium plated, hardened and tempered steel. Further, stroke travel adjustable by means of standard adapter and screw thread for setting of optimum grip depth.
Other benefits include, simple centring by spring-loaded steel cone, optimum operating position due to rotatable pump hand lever or separate pump and simple conversion to two-arm operation if there is insufficient space for three arms.
Hand pumps have a single stage or twin stage pump with a manometer. There are three types included in the Hand Pump Set as follows;
1. Single stage pump
The hand pump PUMP1000-0,7L has an oil container with a volume of 0,7 l. The maximum pressure is 1000 bar. A digital manometer is available as an accessory.
2. Twin stage pump
The twin stage pumps, have a high delivery rate up to 50 bar and then switch automatically to the high pressure stage. This gives a high work rate. Where there is an increased oil requirement, the twin stage pumps are available with a 8 l oil container (suffix 8L). In those cases where the type of installation of the adapter or withdrawal sleeve requires a separate oil supply, a two-way valve is available (suffix D). For pumps with an oil pressure of 1000 bar and a connector, digital manometers are also available as accessories.
3. Pump for drive-up distance
The hand pump PUMP1000-4L-CONTROL is particularly suitable as a pressure generation device where rolling bearings are to be driven onto their tapered seat using a hydraulic nut. First, the bearing is driven smoothly onto the tapered seat as far as the initial position. A suitable hydraulic nut is then screwed onto the shaft and the hand pump is connected. The hand pump is then operated until the pressure to reach the start position is achieved. The pump is then operated further to drive the bearing by the required drive-up distance and thus achieve the final position.
FAG Top-Laser SMARTY2 is a line laser for the alignment of belt pulleys and chain sprockets with a diameter larger than 60 mm.Alignment of belt pulleys and chain sprockets reduces wear and energy losses in traction drives and the associated bearings and seals. Less heat is generated and the running time and reliability of the machinery is increased.
The laser beam can be clearly seen on the target marks. Once the laser beam is adjusted to coincide with the slots in the target marks, the machine is correctly aligned. The target marks are available in optical and electronic versions. In the case of electronic target marks, the adjustment values are shown in the digital display in real time. Misalignments are presented in degrees, the parallelism offset is presented in mm.
The robust, handy FAG Top-Laser TRUMMY2 is an optical-electronic manual measuring instrument belt tension (strand force). The correct belt tension is an essential prerequisite for achieving the maximum life of the belt drive. In addition, this also gives reduced wear of the drive components, lower energy costs and increased cost-efficiency. FAG Top-Laser TRUMMY2 can be used in many locations and comprises a cableless measurement probe, a measurement probe with a cable for difficult to access locations and a microprocessor that displays relevant measurables for belt tension as a frequency (in Hz) or force (in N)
Before measuring the belt tension, the belt mass and length must be entered. Vibration of the belt is then induced. The device measures the natural frequency by means of clock pulse light and uses this to determine the belt tension. This technique is less prone to disruptive influences in comparison with measurement sound waves.
The FAG Top-Laser EQUILIGN is an alignment system for coupled and decoupled shafts in motors, pumps, ventilators and gearboxes with rolling bearings.All the parts of the shaft alignment device are supplied packed in a case. A comprehensive range of accessories is available in order to expand the possible applications of the base device FAG Top-Laser EQUILIGN.

Before alignment is carried out, any soft foot must be eliminated. FAG Top-Laser EQUILIGN clearly indicates the soft foot. Each individual foot screw connection is loosened and the device is monitored to see if it displays any changes between the foot screwed firmly into place and the loosened foot. The soft foot can then be eliminated using shims. This eliminates any tendency towards vibration and bearing damage as a result of housing deformation. During measurement, at least three positions are approached at different angles. These must be measured at an angle of at least 90°. The intelligent control system prevents incorrect usage here. The actual condition of the subassembly is then displayed.
Shims FAG Top-Laser SHIM are used to eliminate vertical misalignment or soft feet. These shims are made from corrosion-resistant alloy steel and are available in seven thicknesses (0,05 mm, 0,1 mm, 0,2 mm, 0,5 mm, 0,7 mm, 1 mm, 2 mm) and in four sizes (dimension c = 15 mm, 23 mm, 32 mm, 44 mm). As replacement parts, we can supply 10 shims each in one of the 4 sizes and one of the 7 thicknesses stated above.
