Roll Alignment Kit Improves Production Line Efficiency
October 2008, Peabody, Massachusetts: Pinpoint Laser Systems has developed a new roll alignment kit to facilitate the alignment of rollers, idlers, take up reels, shafts, and web-handling systems. This newest addition to the Pinpoint line is compact and easy to use in all industrial environments. The Microgage Roll Alignment kit is ideal for paper and textile mills, converting lines, printing presses, plastic bag lines, coating lines, and other roller and web-related applications.
The Microgage Roll Alignment kit is an ideal took for making quick, precise measurements of roll position and orientation on production lines of all sizes. Measurements can be made of both vertical and horizontal roll alignment and the Microgage Laser's accuracy of 0.001 inch is ideal for roll replacement, preventative maintenance checks and all alignment activities. Measurements can be easily made on machines with rolls and idlers high overhear as well as on long lines that incorporate many stations.
A laser transmitter projects a straight, visible reference line that can be directed into the production line to measure and align roll surfaces. A digital receiver "sees" the laser beam and provides a reading of the roll's position relative to the centerline of the laser beam. A display unit can upload readings to a computer and the kit includes all the fixtures and parts for most roll alignment projects.
