The company’s four-axis Microgage Receiver provides meaningful alignment information for evaluating and correcting machinery alignment problems. A 4D receiver, it measures two linear axes X and Y and their two angular components yaw and pitch. The two linear axes show how well machinery is aligned along a common centerline and the angular readouts show if parallelism problems are present. In operation, a narrow laser beam provides a measuring reference line and the receiver measures where the laser line lands on an internal detector and determines the position of a machine or sub-assembly relative to this laser reference beam. The unit operates over distances up to 100 feet or more and delivers a measuring precision of 0.0005 in. and 0.002°. Pinpoint Laser Systems Inc., Peabody, MA. (800) 757-5383.
