Pinpoint Capture™ Software

Pinpoint Capture™ Software

In our ongoing effort to continuously add value to our customer’s systems, Pinpoint laser systems has application-specific data routines for our Capture™ software. These Capture™ routines are designed to aid Microgage users by streamlining the process of performing specific data analysis and calculations for applications, including straightness, bucking in, parallelism, and many others.

These routines are available for download and use for all Microgage users. If you don’t see an application relevant to your alignment or measurement needs, let us know! We are always creating specific applications for our customers based on their need and we can create a routine for you. View the Capture™ routines below to learn more about each application specific data routine.

    Thanks for the quick response. I was able to complete my alignment and release the machine to production yesterday as planned. Without your help, we would be rescheduling the alignment and probably had major issues running production until that happened. Thanks again!
