Microgage – Bore Alignment

About Bore Alignment

Product # – PR-B091

The Pinpoint Microgage System is an ideal solution to solve any bore alignment issues. It works by placing a laser transmitter is outside the bore and a laser aimed so that the beam passes through the center of two datum areas along the bore path.  The laser beam is then adjusted so that the beam passes through the center of each bore datum. Once this is established, you can check the position of multiple bore surfaces to the centerline of the laser beam.

We also offer a number of different size cylindrical laser transmitters and receiver mounts that can be inserted right into bore tubes if needed.
