PEABODY, Mass., Nov. 5, 2010 — Pinpoint Laser Systems Inc. has launched a bore alignment kit. The precision Microgage spindle and lathe alignment measuring kit for industrial applications is suited for aligning extrusion presses, rams, precision screws, lathes, turning centers, propeller shafts, stern tubes and bar feeders. It is compact, precise, easy to set up and affordable. It comprises a cylindrical laser that can be adapted to bores of all sizes. The laser reference beam is projected to a digital receiver that is held in a mount with a similar precision bore diameter. The mount is reversible so that the receiver can catch the laser beam coming either through the bore tube or from the outside, and measurement readings are then transmitted to a handheld display. Readings as small as 0.003 mm define the bore or shaft’s alignment and guide the user to what changes are needed for optimal performance. Measurements can be made over a range of 45.72 m, and simple fixtures expand the options for aligning a variety of machines. A computer interface can store readings and connect the Microgage to common programs and spreadsheets. The versatile kit can be used either on the factory floor or in the field, and it fits into a small carrying case for easy storage.
