The company has introduced a new precision angular measuring and alignment kit for industrial applications. With an angular measuring sensitivity of 1 arcsecond (0.0003 degrees), this system is meant for aligning precision mounts and fixtures, antenna arrays, molding machine platens, press faces and other assemblies. Precision angles can be measured and checked over surfaces that are up to 20' in length, making it a tool useable for surface profiling, the company says.
The kit includes the Microgage 2000 laser transmitter. The transmitter projects a collimated laser reference beam that is captured (upon transmission through the angle measuring prism) by a receiver that is connected to a digital display. As the beam moves along the receiver, a digital readout displays the measurements necessary for checking angular alignment.
