Laser Alignment ToolJuly 1, 2008
Pinpoint Laser Systems, Inc., Peabody, MA, has introduced the Microgage 2D laser alignment tool for precision measuring, machinery alignment, calibration and other demanding applications. With the tool, roll and web lines, CNC cutting and milling equipment, lathes, stamping presses, injection-molding machines, extrusion systems and other production equipment can be checked and aligned for improved operating efficiency and reduced downtime.
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 more than 100 ft. with a bright red beam that quickly adapts to many industrial applications. Accessories allow for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism, squareness, bore alignment, shaft alignment, flatness measuring and more.
The two-axis Microgage operates on batteries, and all components are machined of solid aluminum with a hard anodized coating for wear resistance. It features a sealed pushbutton keypad and large LCD display.
