PEABODY, Mass., March 1, 2012 — Pinpoint Laser Systems is introducing an improved version of its four-axis precision mount for the Microgage laser line. It is lighter and provides finer accuracy and control.
To simplify machinery and equipment alignment tasks, it moves the Microgage laser in four axes: vertical and horizontal, and pitch and yaw angular axes. The laser beam can be positioned to within 0.001 in. and is suitable for checking machinery travel, precision bore alignment, and the straightness of fixtures and assemblies. The mount is easy to set up and can be used on the production floor as well as in the field for installations and servicing work.
Two precision micrometers adjust the elevation of the laser up and down, as well as its position left and right. Another pair of precision adjustments provides angular control of pitch and yaw. The mount is easily attached to a tripod or bolted to a machine, enabling tight laser positioning control over distances as great as 150 ft. The mount can be used for checking straightness, machinery parallelism, squareness, flatness and bore alignment.
It is fabricated from solid aluminum and protected by a hard, anodized coating. The micrometers are graduated in 0.001-in. increments (metric versions available) for easy control, and the mount is assembled with precision roller bearing slides and stainless steel hardware for years of reliable use.
