Roll Alignment Kit Improves Production Efficiency
February 7, 2008, Newburyport, Massachusetts: Pinpoint Laser Systems has developed roll alignment kit to facilitate the alignment of rollers, shafts, and web-handling systems. The newest addition to the Pinpoint line is compact and easy to use in all industrial environments. Typical applications include paper and textile mills, converting lines, printing presses, plastic bag lines, coating lines, and other roller and web-related applications.
The Roll Alignment Kit is an ideal way to make quick, precise and quantitave measurements over large machines with many rollers. The Laser is placed on a swiveling base and a plane of laser light is directed across the top of the rollers. The digital receiver and display provide readings of the roller position relative to the place of laser light and allow the operator to determine the roller orientation to within .001 inch. If the rollers are at different heights it may be necessary to find the best elevation for the laser beam to pass through the machine. The digital information on the position of the laser beam is easily used for calculating surface flatness, runout straightness, parallelism and many other geometric alignment parameters.
Since 1992 Pinpoint has offered a broad line of easy-to-use products that incorporate lasers, optics, electronics, and solidly built mechanical features. Customers in industries as diverse as semiconductor equipment manufacturers to pet food manufacturers use the tool for both routine and complex measuring and alignment tasks deliver measuring resolution of 0.0001 inch and work over ranges of 100 feet. Pinpoint's measuring equipment is actively used in the aerospace industry, machine shops, paper and textile mills, shipbuilding facilities, extrusion plants, and electronic assembly facilities, to name a few. Pinpoint has worked closely with many manufacturers to develop specialized alignment systems for robotic applications, medical scanning devices, and numerous other applications.
