Laser-Alignment Tool Improves Press Operation

Monday, September 01, 2008
 
Pinpoint Laser Systems, Peabody, MA, introduces Microgage 2D for precision measuring, machine alignment, calibration and other industrial applications. It allows stamping presses, CNC cutting and milling equipment, lathes, and other production equipment to be checked and aligned for improved operating efficiency and reduced downtime. The Microgage 2D is compact, and simple to set up and use on the factory floor.

It combines a compact laser transmitter with a receiver and digital display. As the laser moves across the receiver in a vertical or horizontal direction, the display provides a reading of the motion accurate to 0.0001 in. The Microgage will operate over a distance of 100 ft. Several accessories allow for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism and squareness, roll and web alignment, shaft and bore alignment, flatness measurement and more.

The unit operates on batteries and all components are machined of solid aluminum with a hard anodized coating for wear resistance. A sealed pushbutton keypad and large LCD display make the Microgage 2D simple to use. A serial and USB interface connect to a laptop or PC and link to spreadsheets for plotting and analyzing data for maintenance records, customer compliance and other uses. The system includes a compact carrying case.
