Right-Angle Beam Bender

Pinpoint Laser Systems' right-angle beam bender called the 90-Line. It takes the reference laser beam from the Microgage 2000 and turns it precisely 90 degrees. The 90-Line can be used to square machinery and equipment, set and adjust parallel tracks and rails, align web  rollers, idlers and reels, check gantry travel and position, monitor and adjust machine tools, and assist in geometric alignment.

The beam bender is built with a housing for holding precision optical elements that redirect the laser beam. The exiting laser is square to the incoming beam within 0.0006 degrees, or equivalent to 0.001" over a distance of 8 ft. The housing has several adjustments, allowing the square exiting beam to rotate through a full plane. The beam can be adjusted with a precision rotary mount and a two-axis stage mount makes positioning the 90-Line easy.

Flexible Gage Software Integrates with CNC Machine Tools

EMO 2017: Renishaw will exhibit its software for the Equator flexible gauge, which allows users to fully integrate the system with CNC machine tools, its contact scanning system for CNC machine tools, its on-machine and mobile apps which are designed to simplify the use of machine tool probing, an enhanced non-contact tool setter for machining centers, a multi-probe optical interface system, a surface finish probe for coordinate measuring machines, and software that enhances the functionality of Renishaw’s XM-60 multi-axis calibration system.
