i4 were tasked to create a follow-on development from the TKSA 60 shaft alignment tool. The TKSA 80 needed to integrate with SKF’s new global brand identity policy.


The TKSA 80 needed to feature a 7” touchscreen and MIL spec drop test to 1.2m (rugged), environmentally sealed to IP64 – an area in which we have expertise

Follow-on development after the TKSA 60 shaft alignment tool. The requirements included:

  • Integrate with SKF’s new global brand identity policy
  • 7” touchscreen, MIL spec drop test to 1.2m (rugged), environmentally sealed to IP64 – we have expertise in this area.

Approach & Result

With SKF’s Brand Identity definitions established, this was the first product we fully developed under that regime. Using the same rigorous approach to a larger form factor device, it made sure that we passed all drop and IP tests through prototyping to manufacture without a single failure - vindicating our methodologies and vast experience in this market. With all SKF products we support certification testing, transfer of design into production, working closely with toolmakers and supply chain to ensure design intent is maintained prior to volume manufacture.

Through careful design and engineering, the team at i4 have produced the hardiest most sophisticated shaft alignment tool on the market.
