Pinpoint Laser Offers Roll Alignment Tool
Industrial roll adjuster.
Newburyport, MA — Pinpoint Laser Systems is now offering a new alignment tool to facilitate the alignment of rollers, shafts, and web-handling systems. The newest addition to the Pinpoint line is compact and easy to use in all industrial environments. Typical applications include paper mills, converting lines, printing presses, plastic bag lines, coating lines, and other roller and web-related applications. The new Roll Adjuster is also an accessory available with the company's popular Laser Microgage alignment system.

The Roll Adjuster is easy to set up and is simply placed onto the top of a master roller, drive shaft, or idler, and is held in place by a pair of V-legs or adaptable mounts. A fine adjustment screw is turned until the precision bubble level is centered in its glass vial. The digital micrometer is then zeroed by pressing a small button on the front to capture the digital position of this first roll or shaft. The Roll Adjuster is then placed on top of the next available roller and the fine adjustment screw turned until the bubble level is centered. The vertical alignment of this second roller is shown digitally, either in inches or millimeters, allowing for better adjustment or selection of new shims. The Roll Adjuster is then moved to successive rolls for additional measurements and adjustments.

The Roll Adjuster is machined from solid aluminum with stainless steel parts and interchangeable mounting feet for added versatility. The Roll Adjuster and other precision alignment products are manufactured by Pinpoint and found in factories and manufacturing plants throughout the U.S. and overseas.
