Geometric Alignment Kit targets 3-axis CNC gantry machines.

Press Release Summary:

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.

New Alignment Kit for 3-Axis CNC Gantries

Pinpoint Laser Systems Introduces Geometric Alignment Kit For Large Format, 3-Axis CNC Gantry Machines.

Peabody, MA, – Pinpoint Laser Systems has introduced the Pinpoint Gantry Kit, a powerful new tool for geometric alignment of 3-axis CNC gantry machines. Its straight and weightless laser beam replaces traditional references of piano wire, heavy steel straight edges, and granite. The kit measures straightness, perpendicularity, level, and other parameters to an accuracy of 0.001” over longitudinal travel of 150’. Use the measurement values directly to make machine adjustments, or upload your data to a PC for display and further computation and compensation.

For large format CNC gantries, geometric alignment is critical for meeting precision tolerances and minimizing maintenance expenses. With the Pinpoint Gantry Alignment Kit, you can ensure rail straightness and parallelism, cross bridge perpendicularity, Z-axis straightness, and bed flatness. Compared to conventional methods, Pinpoint is faster, easier, and more consistently accurate---check an entire machine in hours rather than days. OEMs can use the kit for machine fabrication and assembly, installers for set-up and certification, and end-users and alignment bureaus for maintenance.

The housings for the laser and receiver are precision-engineered and machined of solid aluminum, anodized for wear resistance. The entire system is battery operated, and a USB interface allows easy connection to a PC. The kit includes Pinpoint Capture™ software, a powerful tool for data display, graphing, and storage. All components fit securely inside a rugged carrying case for safe transportation to your factory floor or any jobsite.
