PEABODY, Mass., June 23, 2010 — Pinpoint Laser Systems is introducing a new four-axis microgage receiver that provides useful information for evaluating and correcting machinery alignment problems. The 4D Microgage Receiver measures two linear axes, X- and Y-, and their two angular components, yaw and pitch. The two linear axes show how well machinery is aligned along a common centerline, and the angular readouts show if parallelism problems are present.

The receiver is suitable for aligning lathes, turning centers and spindles, as well as for moving linear slides, rams and pistons, injection molding machinery and moving mechanical subassemblies. A compact digital display provides precise linear and angular readings and is intuitive and easy to use.

The method of operation is simple. A narrow laser beam provides a measuring reference line, and the 4D microgage receiver measures where this laser line lands on an internal detector and determines the position of a machine or subassembly relative to this laser reference beam. This receiver will operate over distances of 100 ft or more and delivers a measuring precision of 0.0005 in. and 0.005°, suitable for demanding industrial alignment applications.

The Laser Microgage system along with this new receiver enables plant engineers and manufacturing personnel to perform precise measuring and alignment so that they can monitor and optimize their own production machinery and equipment. They can use the tool for both routine and complex measuring and alignment tasks.
