The Laser Microgage is well suited for precision machinery leveling. The laser beam extends outward from the laser’s housing for great distances and a 10-arc-second precision level built into the laser brings the beam into a level, horizontal orientation.
Placing the Microgage receiver at various locations on the laser path lets you measure and adjust machinery into a level orientation.
Typical machine leveling applications include
- Leveling long test systems and tanks
- General machinery leveling and placement
- Aligning fourdriners on paper making machinery
- Leveling slides and mechanical stages
- Adjusting precision conveyors and transport units
- Checking crowned rollers and idlers
- And much more
How it’s done?
For machinery leveling, the Microgage Laser is placed onto the 4-Axis Precision Mount and adjusted until the precision bubble is centered. The laser is now level and measurements can be made off it using the Microgage receiver.
Level planes are created using the Leveler Rotational Mount. The laser is rotated between the 12:00 and the 6:00 position and the bubble adjusted to center. This process is repeated for the 3:00 and 9:00 positions to insure than the plane of laser light is level. Now the Microgage receiver is moved to a position and the laser swung to meet it for each measurement.
