Pinpoint Intros New Alignment Tool
Laser Microgage checking roller parallelism.
Peabody, MA — Pinpoint Laser Systems® is introducing a new 2-dimensional Microgage for precision measuring, machine alignment, calibration, and other demanding industrial applications. Roll and web lines, CNC cutting and milling equipment, lathes, stamping presses, injection molding machines, extrusion systems and other production equipment are easily checked and aligned for improved operating efficiency and reduced downtime with this new Microgage.

The new unit is compact, easy to set up and use right on the factory floor. The instrument is easy to use with instructions that show up on the display guiding the operator through the alignment project. This product 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 feet with a bright red beam that is quickly adaptable to many industrial applications. Several simple accessories allow for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism, squareness, roll & web alignment, shaft & bore alignment, flatness measuring and much more.

The 2 Axis system operates on batteries for added convenience 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 easy and convenient to use in demanding industrial environments. A serial and USB interface connect to a laptop or PC and link to popular spreadsheets for plotting and analyzing data for maintenance records, customer compliance and other uses. The system includes a compact carrying case to store the components and is easily carried right out onto the manufacturing floor.
