Machinery Alignment Kit

The Laser Microgage dual-axis alignment kit includes a laser-squaring attachment called the 90-Line for checking machine beds, vertical cutting machinery, and roll parallelism, for squaring slides and gantries, and measuring geometric parameters.

The laser beam enters the 90-Line through a port in the front and exits from a side port at precisely 90° to the incoming beam. Internal optics let operators place the device anywhere along the laser path and establish precise right-angle references. The device checks the parallelism of slides, rails, machine tracks, rollers, and shafts. A locking mechanism handles preset positions, and a friction lock holds the beam in place. The housing is machined from solid aluminum and has a hard anodized coating.
