Pinpoint Gantry Kit

Complete laser kit for alignment of 3-axis CNC gantry systems.

The Pinpoint Laser Systems 3-Axis Gantry Kit provides a powerful, cost-effective solution for aligning X-Y tables and 3-axis gantry systems. It measures straightness, flatness, squareness, and level over longitudinal travel of 150’ and more. The kit provides a fast and easy method for achieving precision alignment of gantry machines. Its straight and weightless laser beam replaces traditional references of piano wire, heavy steel straight edges, and granite. Use the measurement values directly to make machine adjustments, or upload your data to a PC for display and further computation and compensation.

Measures all key alignment parameters on 3-axis gantry systems.

The key elements of the 3-Axis Gantry Kit are the laser transmitter, two-dimensional electronic receiver, and 90-line beam bender. When used with the included remote processing unit and mounts, this kit can handle a comprehensive set of alignment checks, including:

  • Straightness of longitudinal rails
  • Parallelism of longitudinal rails
  • Straightness of cross bridges
  • Straightness of Z-axis slides
  • Squareness between rails, cross bridges, and Z-axis
  • Flatness of tables and beds
  • Leveling of machines

Common Gantry Applications

Gantry Straightness Illustration.

Rail Straightness

Position the receiver at key check points to measure rail straightness in both horizontal and vertical directions.

Gantry Parallel Illustration.

Rail Parallelism

Use the 90-Line Right Angle to measure parallelism of rails.

Gantry Squareness Illustration.

Squareness/Perpendicularity

Use the 90-Line Right Angle to measure squareness among X, Y, and Z axes.

Gantry Flatness Illustration.

Flatness

Use the rotational mount to profile flatness of tables and beds.

For use at the OEM, or in the field.

  • OEMs will appreciate the Pinpoint Gantry Kit during machine fabrication and assembly. Ensure rails are straight and parallel and beds are flat before the gantry leaves your facility. You can even check in-coming parts.
  • Installers will appreciate the Kit during initial set-up. Ensure all alignment parameters are in spec before handing off to your customer.
  • End users and alignment service bureaus will appreciate the Pinpoint Gantry Kit during repair.
  • Check alignment on a regular schedule to detect wear trends for preventative maintenance.

A gantry kit from Pinpoint Laser Systems pays for itself.

Compared to conventional methods, such as wire and cumbersome straight edges, laser systems from Pinpoint can perform alignment checks much more quickly. Plus, a laser delivers consistent, accurate data—even when used by technicians with minimal training.

  • Fast: Check an entire gantry machine in hours rather than days
  • Easy: Eliminate fussy piano wire or long, cumbersome straight edges
  • Consistently accurate: Every technician will get the same results
