Pinpoint's New Roll Alignment Kit

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 tool 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 overhead, as well as on long lines that incorporate many stations.

A Microgage 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.

Since 1992 Pinpoint has offered a broad line of easy-to-use products that incorporate lasers, optics, electronics, and solidly built mechanical features. Customers in industries as diverse as semiconductor equipment manufacturers to pet food manufacturers use these products for both routine and complex measuring and alignment tasks. Pinpoint's measuring equipment is actively used in the aerospace industry, machine shops, paper and textile mills, shipbuilding facilities, extrusion plants, and electronic assembly facilities, to name a few. Pinpoint has worked closely with many manufacturers to develop specialized alignment systems for robotic applic ations, medical scanning devices, and numerous other applications.
