The system is reportedly intuitive to use for quick and precise measurements of machinery and rail straightness, parallelism, surface flatness, and other alignments. The kit consists of a laser transmitter and digital receiver connected to a handheld display. Alignment units are displayed on a large LCD display in 0.001 or 0.0001-in. increments or in millimeters. An interface cable permits uploading to a laptop or PC for analysis. The kit's rotating base allows for setting and checking flat planes such as machine beds, roller assemblies, sliding mechanical stages, and other planar equipment. A precise 90° beam bender is used for squaring machinery, checking the vertical axis of machine tools, and monitoring parallelism of rails, tracks, and rollers. A heavy-duty tripod supports the laser and several mounting fixtures for versatility on the plant floor. The entire kit fits into a compact carrying case for easy storage and transport.
