Our factory trained and certified personnel have logged many hours performing spindle alignment, coupling alignment, bore alignment and machine geometries.

Laser Systems Used

L-743 Triple Scan Laser leveling, alignment and calibration system is a highly accurate 3-axis laser.

This laser features a flat plane of 1⁄2 arc second (0.00003″/ft or 0.0025 mm/m in a 36O° degree sweep and 1⁄4 arc second (0.000015″/ft or 0.001 mm/m) in a 90° sweep all with a range of 100 feet.

Over time all machines go out of alignment. When properly aligned, machinery and process lines run better, last longer, require less maintenance, lower production costs, and improve productivity. Alignment capabilities of the L-743 include flatness, level, squareness, straightness, and parallelism.

The L-775 Coupling Alignment System can dynamically measure and adjust the alignment of almost any shaft/coupling configuration and size.

Properly aligned couplings can prolong component life and reduce costly downtime. This system can be used coupled or uncoupled with a minimum sweep angle of 60°.

The L-705 Bore Alignment System can be used for virtually any bore alignment application.

Bores ranging from 1.5″ to 36″ or more can be easily accommodated. Typical applications include bar feeders,

boring bars, crank cases, cylinders, extruder barrels, turbines, engine blocks, and any other bore applications.

The L-700 Spindle Laser Alignment System is highly accurate with center resolution of 0.5 microns (0.00002″) and angular resolution of 0.00002″/ft. Typical applications include transfer line spindles, turning centers (cylindrical, OD/ID grinders, lathes) and rotary dial machines.

The Leica Absolute Tracker AT402 is the most portable 3D Absolute Tracker for traditional inspection tasks or for fully guided measurement processes. It is able to be powered by its own internal battery and is able to work in the most demanding environment, yet maintains the highest level of precision and the largest ever work envelope. The AT402 features increased ruggedness and extended battery life.

The Leica Absolute Tracker AT402 has a unique “All in One” system design that incorporates such needed accessories as built in live video, level to gravity, environmental monitoring and even an integrated IR remote control. By utilizing the integrated WiFi access point functionality the sensor can be used completely wirelessly.

Why Precision Alignment?

All precision equipment, whether rotary or machine tool, must be aligned in order to deliver accurate, quality parts. Improper machine geometry, where columns are not square, slides are not straight, and surface tables are not flat, can affect production. Even properly aligned machinery can become misaligned from thermal effects, vibration, poor foundations, machine accidents or rebuilding. Periodic alignment is a must; however in many cases, the alignment process is so time consuming and complex that it is never done or it is relegated to times when plants are shut down.

The alignment systems we use are fast and extremely accurate. Problem diagnosis is simplified, and a machine can be accurately measured and aligned in a fraction of the time it took to use older alignment methods.
