Microgage can align CNC machine tools, check printing presses, align webs and rolls, monitor plastic injection-molding equipment, align shafts and drive assemblies, and more. The kit consists of a compact laser transmitter that forms a straight reference line over 150 ft long. A small digital reader picks up the laser beam, and a handheld display shows the position of the reader to within 0.0001 in. (3 m). A rotating base swings the laser in a full circle, defining a precise plane for checking the flatness of equipment, rolls, and web systems. A right-angle attachment redirects the laser beam for checking squareness of machinery-aligning actuators, and precision parallelism adjustments on rollers, guides, tracks, and rails. The device attaches to any machine by using different adapters.
