Pinpoint Laser Systems Introduces ‘Smart’ and Easy-to-Use Microgage PRO Laser Alignment System

Jane Alexander | December 22, 2014

According to Pinpoint Laser Systems (Pinpoint), its recently launched Microgage PRO laser-alignment system sets a new standard for ease-of-use. The system operates with three primary components: a laser transmitter, a digital receiver and a “smart display.”

A precise laser beam forms a straight reference line for a machine or assembly and each receiver measures in two axial directions, horizontal and vertical (X & Y). The path of the laser beam can be a few inches up to 180 feet and the state of the art touchscreen display provides accurate readings as small as 0.0001 inch (2.5 micron). Intelligently designed receivers are available, in a variety of configurations, including convenient wireless options that improve measuring range and durability, and give users the advantage of not being tied down in the field.

The Microgage PRO’s onboard microprocessor supplies step-by-step instructions for the user and allows for the storage of thousands of measurement readings with notes, all inside a durable industrial enclosure that is easy to hold and use in the field.

Pinpoint notes that by using the three basic Microgage PRO components, long assemblies, machinery, and fixtures can be measured and aligned with great precision over long distances. Adding other Microgage accessories, the company says, allows users to measure and align flatness, squareness, parallelism, bores, spindles, and many other geometric parameters.
