Pinpoint Laser Systems


The Microgage 2D is a new tool from Pinpoint Laser Systems for measuring, machine alignment, calibration, and other industrial applications. It can be used on roll- and web-fed lines, CNC cutting and milling equipment, stamping presses, injection-molding machines, extrusion systems and other production equipment. Microgage 2D combines a laser transmitter with a receiver and digital display. As the laser moves across the receiver in a vertical or horizontal direction, the display provides a reading of the motion to within 0.0001 in. (0.0025 mm). It can operate over a distance of 100 ft (30.5 m), and accessories are available for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism, squareness, roll and web alignment, shaft and bore alignment, flatness measuring, and more. The tool features serial and USB interfaces for connectivity to a laptop or PC. It includes a carrying case.
