Laser Aligns Machinery And Equipment

Pinpoint Laser Systems' Microgage Laser Alignment System reduces downtime by ensuring that moving elements and components are well aligned to each other. It consists of a small compact laser transmitter that forms a very straight reference line more than 150 ft long. A small digital reader picks up the laser beam and a handheld display shows the position of the reader to within 0.

Pinpoint Laser Systems' Microgage Laser Alignment System reduces downtime by ensuring that moving elements and components are well aligned to each other. It consists of a small compact laser transmitter that forms a very straight reference line more than 150 ft long. A small digital reader picks up the laser beam and a handheld display shows the position of the reader to within 0.0001" (3 microns). The Microgage laser can be positioned to form a straight reference line, as shown in the photograph for checking machinery straightness, runout and other parameters. A rotating laser  base swings the laser in a full circle defining a precise plane for checking the flatness of equipment. A right angle attachment redirects the laser beam for checking squareness of machinery aligning actuators and precision parallelism adjustments on rollers, guides, tracks and rails. With different adapters, the Microgage can attach to any machine providing precise reliable information on the alignment condition and guidance on how to re-optimize the equipment.
