Alignment Kits

Microgage Complete Alignment Kits help check and align manufacturing equipment.

Microgage Complete help check and align manufacturing equipment. The kits let users measure machinery straightness, parallelism, surface flatness, squareness, bore and shaft alignment, and so forth. The kit includes a laser transmitter and a digital receiver connected to a handheld display. Readings appear on a large LCD, and alignment units are presented in increments of 0.001 or 0.0001 in. as well as in millimeters. A rotating base for setting and checking flat planes such as machine beds, roller assemblies, sliding mechanical stages, and other planer equipment is included. Also included is a 90° beam bender for squaring machinery, checking the vertical axis of machine tools, monitoring parallelism of rails, tracks and rollers, and more. A heavy-duty tripod and several mounting fixtures support the laser. An interface cable connects the device to a laptop or PC.
