New Lathe & Spindle Alignment Tool for Industry

Newburyport, Massachusetts, April 2007: Pinpoint Laser Systems is now introducing a new measuring and alignment system for lathes, turning equipment, spindles and related machinery. This Spindle Alignment Tool is easy to use, versatile, and affordable for use right on the factory floor. Ideal applications include aligning lathes and turning centers, adjusting boring mills, aligning drive shafts, adjusting barfeeders, and many other industrial applications. This newest Microgage system provides information on runout, centerline offset, parallelism, concentricity and other useful parameters that can guide machinery back to optimal alignment and improved profits.

This lathe & spindle alignment system is simple and quick to use with a round laser that is secured into a chuck or attached to the end of a shaft or spindle. A dual-axis receiver is placed on the tailstock, tool holder or another piece of equipment that can receive the laser beam. As the laser and the receiver move relative to each other the digital display provides a precise reading of the alignment and machine's characteristics. This new Microgage Spindle Alignment tool can measure to a precision of 0.0001 inch or better and the laser allows for alignments over distances as great as 150 feet. The recent introduction of Pinpoint's newest Microgage 2D brings added precision, easy to follow screen instructions and new optical and digital technology to the alignment of spindles and lathes.

The Spindle Alignment Kit operates on batteries for added convenience and all components are machined of solid anodized aluminum or stainless steel for wear resistance. A serial and USB interface connect to a laptop or PC and link to popular spreadsheets for plotting and analyzing data for maintenance records, customer compliance and other uses. This Microgage system includes a compact carrying case to store the components and is easily carried right out onto the manufacturing floor.
