Measurement Tooling Alignment
Seiffert Industrial’s FixturLaser XA Geometric Alignment System enhances measurement tooling for straightness, flatness and bore position with technologies such as touch-screen navigation, Bluetooth wireless communication and live position data while making alignment adjustments. According to the company, the system can provide better accuracy while reducing setup and measurement time by 60-80%. The user instantly sees a display of the measured object’s position, along with color-coded measured points related to alignment tolerances.

Brady’s Toughstripe™ Floor Marking product line includes industrial floor tape, corner marks, die-cut shapes and floor signs. All feature a low-profile design, durable polyester material and a one-man dispensing system. The tape’s stiff material and a liner prevent it from stretching, and reduce the chance of wrinkles and wavy, uneven lines. Floors can be prepped with common facility cleansers; no special preparation is required.

Gauge Sensor Fits Tight Spaces
The GS-4630 linear gauge sensor from Ono Sokki Technology measures dimensions, thickness, displacement, height, depth, flatness and more. Its linear glass scale technology maintains consistent accuracy throughout its entire range, according to the company. The slim sensor was built to fit tight quarters, including inside of machinery with limited access space. A waterproof seal and a dust bellow provide extra protection in harsh environments.

Retaining Rings, Wave Springs For Bearing Retention
Rotor Clip’s retaining rings and wave springs are designed to provide a cost-saving method to pre-load and retain bearings. The radial wall of the multi-turn wave spring offers a wide supporting surface, and the bearing load in the waves guarantees 100% axial transmission of the load. In place of a cover plate, the entire assembly can be held in place using a two-turn spiral retaining ring that offers a 360° closed surface of contact for the wave spring.
