Machinery-Alignment Kit

Aug. 5, 2004
The Microgage 2000 machinery-alignment kit is for checking stage and slide travel to measure straightness and run out.


It is particularly adept at checking the perpendicularity of cutting tools and the squareness of machine assemblies. The kit consists of a laser transmitter that projects a working beam up to 80 ft. A receiver and digital display catch the laser beam and give a readout for each alignment task. The laser and display operate on batteries for portability. A computer interface lets readings be analyzed, plotted, and stored.
