Microgage – Flatness

About Flatness

Product # – PR-FL51

The laser transmitter is placed onto a precision rotating base called the Leveler Rotational Mount which allows the laser to swing through a full circle and define a flat, precise plane of laser light. This plane of light is flat to within 0.001 inch over a 24 foot diameter area. The Microgage receiver is then moved to various locations around this work area and the laser is aimed to the receiver to make a height or profile measurement at that location.

The leveler can be adjusted with three precision adjustment screws and leveled if needed. It is convenient to mount in multiple areas. This is a very versatile part of any laser measuring system.
