Pinpoint Laser Systems is introducing a new 2D Laser Microgage for precision measuring, machine alignment, calibration and other demanding industrial applications. The system is compact, easy to setup and use right on the factory floor, the company says.

The tool combines a compact laser transmitter with a receiver and digital display. As the laser beam moves across the receiver in a vertical or horizontal path, the display provides a reading of the motion, accurate to 0.0001”. This product will operate over a distance of 180 ft. with a bright red beam that is quickly adaptable to many industrial applications.

The alignment tool is easy to use with instructions that show up on the display guiding the operator through their alignment project. Several simple accessories allow for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism, squareness, roll and web alignment, shaft and bore alignment, flatness measuring and much more.

The two-axis laser tool operates on batteries for added convenience and all components are machined of solid aluminum with a hard anodized coating for wear resistance. It includes a sealed pushbutton keypad and large LCD display. A serial and USB interface connect to a laptop or PC and link to popular spreadsheets for plotting and analyzing data for maintenance records, customer compliance, and so on. This system includes a company carrying case to store components and is easily carried right onto the manufacturing floor.
