Pinpoint Microgage 2D Spindle Laser Alignment Kit

Pinpoint Spindle Kit

Two dimensional laser measuring and alignment in an easy to use, versatile, and affordable package

The Pinpoint Spindle Kit can be adapted to a wide variety of industrial measuring and alignment requirements. Each receiver measures in two axial directions (X & Y) and can be used for checking straightness, flatness, parallelism, squareness, bores, spindles, and other alignment needs. Measurements as small as 0.0001 inch are shown on a large, easy to use, display and the laser and receiver can be separated by a few inches up to 150 feet for large industrial projects.

Pinpoint Spindle Kit Overview

How It Works

The Pinpoint Spindle laser alignment  Kit has three main components, a laser transmitter, a digital receiver, and a display.  A highly collimated, low power laser beam is projected from the end of the laser housing and is aligned parallel to its mounting shank. The electronic receiver detects the laser beam and provides a digital readout showing the height and lateral position of the laser beam.
