New Alignment Kit is Easy to Use for Factory Alignment & Boosts Efficiency
Newburyport, Massachusetts, March, 2002: The Microgage Alignment Kit is a new, versatile measuring and alignment product designed for plant engineers and maintenance professionals. This product is easy to use, and quickly provides valuable measuring information on machine alignment to improve operating efficiency and reduce downtime due to mechanical wear and breakdowns. The Microgage is compact and sets up in minutes to provide precise measurements of machinery straightness, surface flatness, rail and slide parallelism, and squareness for production equipment.
The Microgage consists of a compact laser transmitter and digital receiver that captures the laser reference beam and provides a digital readout of the laser's exact position. Placing the laser on a moving slide or table allows the digital receiver to measure worn areas, locations where the binding and shifting occur, and other important alignment parameters. The Microgage has been used in shipbuilding, aligning extrusion equipment, checking laminating roll position and parallelism, adjusting gantry systems, positioning large sub-assemblies, adjusting machine tools and more. The initial success of the Laser Microgage has been due to its affordable price and the simplicity of operation.
The Alignment Kit includes a rotating base for establishing precise planes, a right angle laser splitter for squaring equipment, several mounting fixtures for adapting the laser to production machinery, and a computer interface with software drivers. All items fit into a sturdy carrying case for easy storage and convenience around the production facility.
The Microgage and other Pinpoint products are manufactured in the United States and available directly from the factory and through Manufacturer's Representatives.
