PEABODY, Mass., June 21, 2011 — Pinpoint Laser Systems Inc. is introducing a precision Microgage bore alignment kit for industrial applications. It is suited for aligning extrusion presses, rams, precision screws, propeller shafts and stern tubes, and bar feeders. The kit is compact, precise and easy to set up.
The system consists of 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 bore mount with a similar precision. The mount is reversible so that the receiver can detect the laser beam either passing through the bore or entering the bore, 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 150 ft, 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 kit is versatile for use either on the factory floor or in the field, and it fits into a small carrying case for easy storage.
