New Microgage Transparent Receiver Solves Alignment Problems

February 2008, Peabody, Massachusetts: Pinpoint Laser Systems is just introducing a new transparent, Microgage 2D receiver that will be used for aligning production machinery and equipment. A narrow laser beam provides a measuring reference line and the new transparent receiver determines the position of a machine or sub-assembly relative to the laser beam. This new receiver will operate over distances of 100 feet and deliver measuring precision of less than 0.0005 inch, ideal for demanding industrial alignment applications. The Microgage system and this newest transparent receiver are well suited for lathe and spindle alignment, checking machine tool runout, roll and web alignment, precision bore alignment and much more.

The Microgage 2D is easy to use with instructions that show up on a display guiding the operator through their alignment project. This product combines a compact laser transmitter with a receiver and digital display. As the laser moves across the receiver in a vertical or horizontal direction the display provides a reading of the motion, accurate to 0.0001 inch. This new Microgage will operate over a distance of 100 feet with a bright red beam that is quickly adaptable to many industrial applications. Several simple accessories allow for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism, squareness, roll & web alignment, shaft & bore alignment, flatness measuring and much more.

The 2 Axis Laser Microgage operates on batteries for added convenience and all components are machined of solid aluminum with a hard anodized coating for wear resistance. A sealed push button keypad and large LCD display make the Microgage 2D easy and convenient to use in demanding industrial environments. 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.
