Lathe And Spindle Alignment Tool

Pinpoint Laser Systems' measuring and alignment system for lathes, turning equipment, spindles and related machinery is said to be easy to use and especially useful for aligning lathes and turning centers, adjusting boring mills, aligning drive shafts, adjusting bar feeders and many other industrial applications. This Microgage system provides information on runout, centerline offset, parallelism, concentricity and other useful parameters that can guide machinery back to optimal alignment and improved profits. The lathe and spindle alignment system is said to be simple to use with a round laser that is secured into a chuck or attached to the end of a shaft or spindle.

The lathe and spindle alignment system is said to be simple to use with a round laser that is secured into a chuck or attached to the end of a shaft or spindle. A dual-axis receiver is placed on the tailstock, toolholder or another piece of equipment that can receive the laser beam. As the laser and the receiver move relative to each other, the digital display provides a precise reading of the alignment and machine's characteristics. This Microgage spindle alignment tool can measure to a precision of 0.0001 inch or better and the laser allows for alignments over distances as long as 150 feet.

The kit operates on batteries, and all components are machined of solid anodized aluminum or stainless steel for wear resistance. A serial and USB interface connect to a laptop or PC and link to popular spreadsheets for plotting and analyzing data for maintenance records and customer compliance and is easily carried onto the manufacturing floor.
