Four-Axis Receiver Solves Industrial Alignment Problems

Pinpoint Laser Systems’ four-axis Microgage Receiver provides critical information that enables users to evaluate and correct machinery alignment problems.

Pinpoint Laser Systems’ four-axis Microgage Receiver provides critical information that enables users to evaluate and correct 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 designed to align lathes; CNC turning centers; spindles; linear slides, rams and pistons; injection molding machinery; moving mechanical sub-assemblies; and more. A compact, digital display is said to provide precise linear and angular readings.
 

To operate, a narrow laser beam provides a measuring reference line. The receiver measures where the laser line lands on an internal detector, and it determines the position of a machine or sub-assembly relative to the laser reference beam. The receiver can operate over distances measuring 100 ft. or more and deliver a measuring precision of 0.0005" and 0.002 degrees.
