Original Press Release:
New Laser System Simplifies Bore and Shaft Alignment
Newburyport, Massachusetts, March 2005: Pinpoint Laser Systems is introducing a new precision Microgage Bore Alignment Kit for industrial applications. Our newest product is perfectly suited for aligning extrusion presses, rams, precision screws, lathes and turning centers, propeller shafts and stern tubes, bar feeders, and many other demanding applications. This Microgage Bore Alignment Kit is compact, precise, easy to set up, and most importantly, affordable - for small and large firms alike.
This unique Microgage Bore Alignment System consists of a cylindrical laser, available in either a 2.250" or 1.000" diameter that is held right in the bore, tool holder, chuck, or shaft mount. The laser reference beam is projected to a digital receiver that is held in a mount with a similar precision bore diameter. This mount is reversible so that the receiver can catch the laser beam coming either through the bore tube or from the outside, and measurement readings are then transmitted to a handheld display. Readings as small as 0.0001 inch (0.003mm) define the bore or shaft's alignment and guide the user to what changes are needed for optimal performance. Measurements can be made over a range of 80 feet, and simple fixtures expand the options for aligning a variety of machines. A computer interface can store readings and connect the Microgage to common programs and spreadsheets. The Microgage Bore Alignment Kit is highly versatile for use either on the factory floor or in the field and fits into a small carrying case for easy storage.
The Microgage Bore Alignment Kit and other Pinpoint products are designed and manufactured here in the United States and may be found in production facilities, machine shops, shipbuilding, utilities, roll mills, printing and converting plants, and in many other industries.
