Laser Alignment for Aerospace
Laser alignment and measurement solutions for assembly,
and support of aerospace sub-assemblies and equipment.
The aerospace industry is actively designing and building new aircraft and space vehicles that require tight alignment and precision measuring capability. The Pinpoint Laser Microgage is a proven laser alignment tool for the checking, assembly, repair, service and support of aerospace sub-assemblies and equipment.
Large launch tracks require careful laser alignment to check straightness and engine mounts need precise alignment during assembly. Test vehicles in wind tunnels and test tanks are measured and positioned carefully with laser alignment systems to advance the testing and development of new equipment. The precision, versatility and long operating range of the laser Microgage line contribute to its popularity as a key tool for aerospace applications.

“The Pinpoint Laser Alignment system that I purchased has worked really well for us over the years, and KTF (The Kauai Test Facility operated by Sandia National Laboratories for the Department of Energy) is still using it today (2020). I installed 450 inches of this rail on our Pad 1 20K launcher then precisely aligned all rail segments to within .012” TIR from front to back on that entire rail installation. It gives rockets launched from this launcher a “velvet-smooth ride” down the rails as a rocket system is launched from the very straight rails on this launcher, and that makes the Aero engineers doing impact predictions very happy.”
