Laser microgage 2D display stores alignment data

Pinpoint Laser Systems

Pinpoint Laser Systems® is announcing a new storage system to be used with the Pinpoint Laser Microgage 2D family of products. The new Microgage 2D Display will be fully compatible with our existing 2D measuring systems and enables the operator to record readings in the field or right on the factory floor. The measurement and alignment readings are stored on the Microgage 2D Display and then can be downloaded onto a computer containing our DCU software for analysis, plotting and storage. This Microgage 2D Display, along with our Microgage 2D system, can be used for machine tool alignment, roll and web alignment, bore alignment, shaft alignment and a variety of other industrial measuring applications.

The Laser Microgage 2D is a powerful measuring and alignment system for individual applications. A laser transmitter projects a compact, highly focused laser beam that is detected by a portable receiver. The receiver is connected to the Microgage 2D Display and dimensionally shows where the receiver is located relative to the laser beam. Measurements can be made over a range of 180 feet with precision of better than 0.0001 inch in a factory environment. Adding several attachments allows the user to measure flatness, straightness, squareness, parallelism, bore alignment, shaft alignment and many other industrial alignment parameters. The Laser Microgage 2D is compact, easy to use and set up for both simple and complex measuring and alignment jobs.
