Pinpoint Laser Systems has expanded its Microgage 2D family with the introduction of a transparent receiver that allows a laser beam to pass through it while making precise position measurements for aligning machinery and equipment. The compact device is suitable for bore alignment and checking extruder barrels and shaft bearings. A narrow laser beam provides a measuring reference line, and the receiver determines the position of a machine or subassembly relative to the beam. It operates over distances of ≥100 ft and delivers measurement precision of 0.0005 in. The system and receiver can be used for lathe and spindle alignment, checking machine tool run-out, and roll and web alignment. The two-axis system operates on batteries, and all components are machined of solid aluminum with a hard anodized coating for wear resistance. It includes a sealed push-button keypad and a large LCD display.
