Squareness & Perpendicularity
Squareness & perpendicularity are measured by redirecting a laser beam with an optical device at precisely 90 degrees off an established path.
How it works
The 90-Line is placed into the laser beam path and redirects the laser beam off at a precise right angle from the original laser beam. The 90-Line has an internal optical element called a penta-prism that reflects the laser at precisely 90 degrees to the incoming laser beam, regardless of the orientation of the 90-Line housing. Squareness Measurements are made by first aligning the laser to a central machine axis or along a reference path.
Placing the 90-Line into the laser path redirects the laser beam off at a right angle so that other assemblies can be positioned and aligned squarely to the original laser path. The nosepiece of the 90-Line will also turn so that you can direct the laser through a full plane that is perpendicular to the original laser path. Several 90-Lines can be used in combination to redirect the laser around an alignment area.
