Four-Axis Alignment Gage
Jun 2011Pinpoint Laser SystemsRequest Info
A new four-axis microgage receiver from Pinpoint Laser Systems
Inc. provides information for evaluating and correcting machinery alignment problems.
The 4-D microgage receiver measures two linear axes (X and Y) and two angular components
(yaw and pitch). The linear axes show how well machinery is aligned along a common
centerline, and the angular readouts reveal whether there are parallelism problems.
The device is suitable for aligning lathes, turning centers and spindles as well
as for moving linear slides, rams and pistons, injection molding machinery, mechanical
subassemblies and more. A compact digital display provides precise linear and angular
readings and is easy and intuitive to use. The receiver will operate over distances
of 100 ft or more and can deliver measuring precision of 0.0005 in. and 0.002°.
