Laser and App automate layout of interior points and walls.

November 11, 2014

Spectra Precision® QML800 QuickMark Layout allows drywall and interior contractors to lay out points for interior building construction. Controlled by mobile application running on Android tablet that stores point files, dual lasers create bright, visible X directly on point for marking. Lasers position X at desired point in <5 sec when point is selected. For use in bright conditions, laser pointer accessory helps operators find laser beams. Laser accuracy is 1/8 in. typ. Read More

Next Generation in laser alignment tools is introduced

October 16, 2014

Comprised of laser transmitter, digital receiver, and smart display, Microgage PRO enables measurement and alignment of long assemblies, machinery, and fixtures over long distances. Laser beam forms straight reference line for machine or assembly, and each of 4 receivers measures in 2 axial directions: horizontal and vertical (X and Y). Laser beam path can be few inches up to 180 ft, and touchscreen display provides accurate readings as small as 0.0001 in. Read More

Laser Shaft Alignment Tool operates with just 3 steps.

September 8, 2014

With intuitive interface, Fluke® 830 delivers precise shaft condition measurements and actionable results that, along with vibration testing, IR thermography, and other predictive maintenance measurements, enable maintenance teams to maximize machine life. Three steps include: Setup, which determines machine's dimensions; Measure, which takes readings from 3 sectors as laser is rotated around shaft; and Diagnose, which provides correction numbers along with 4-level, color-coded severity scale.

Geometric Alignment Kit targets 3-axis CNC gantry machines.

July 9, 2014

Utilizing straight and weightless laser beam rather than piano wire, heavy steel straight edges, and granite, Pinpoint Gantry Kit measures straightness, perpendicularity, level, and other parameters to accuracy of 0.001 in. over longitudinal travel of 150 ft. Operators can use measurement values directly to make machine adjustments, or upload data to PC for display and further computation and compensation. Entire system is battery operated, with USB interface for PC connection. Read More

Flange Alignment Tools combine safety, speed, efficiency.

February 14, 2014

ATM-Series helps reduce set-up time and installation expense where rotational misalignments and twists in pipeline are common problems. Designed for single-operator use, ATM-2/-4/-9 Series do not require external power source, chains, slings, or lifting gear. Design allows use in any position and accommodates ANSI, API, BS, and DIN flanges. Max lifting force is 10 and 40 kN, respectively, for mechanical models ATM-2 and ATM-4, while ATM-9 with hydraulic alignment is rated up to 90 kN. Read More

Shaft Alignment System operates with iPad and iPhone.

December 5, 2013

Consisting of 2 wireless, Bluetooth® laser measuring units, pre-assembled on shaft brackets, ALiSENSOR® SHAFTLASER™ features intuitive shaft alignment interface in 3D layout with live alignment diagrams and Graduated Tolerance Control to show both Acceptable and Excellent tolerances. Vertical and Horizontal misalignment results are shown simultaneously in 3D view to facilitate correction. System can perform standard 9-12-3 clock position measurement, or use minimum of two 20° rotations of shafts. Read More

Bar Feeder Alignment System accepts bores down to ¾ in. dia.

August 19, 2013

Featuring instantaneous set-up using self-centering laser tool, Model L56SS provides laser beam that is straight to ±.010 in. at 10 ft. Battery-powered system is chucked within lathe's spindle so that laser beam shoots through spindle and down carriage of bar feeder. Two targets register left/right and up/down positions of front and back portion of bar feeder's carriage. Depending on style of bar feeder, up and down height is adjusted manually each time new diameter of bar stock is loaded. Read More
