Fast Machine Leveling and Alignment
This product got me thinking about other routine processes and procedures that go unchallenged.
As an editor for Modern Machine Shop, I’m exposed to plenty of nifty products. Although some catch my eye more than others, the reason isn’t always related to the product’s technological sophistication or even its impact on the machining process. I find it particularly gratifying to discover innovations aimed at challenging procedures that have become so routine as to leave manufacturers utterly blind to different, potentially better ways of doing things.
Consider the device shown below. Known Tru-Lign and available from Y3DE, this system is designed to speed the process of leveling and aligning any machine tool, whether a new installation, a migrant from another area of the facility or a temporary display model.
