Flatness & Planer Measuring
Placing the laser onto a precision rotating base defines a flat plane of laser light for measuring surface flatness and aligning components and assemblies in a precise plane. The digital receiver is moved to various locations and provides an accurate measure of surface height and profile.
Typical applications include
- Checking machine beds
- Profiling surfaces and assemblies
- Measuring runout in gantry and machine tools
- Aligning roller and web systems
- Setting tracks, rails, and guides in place
- Checking flanges and circular planes
- Positioning machinery and equipment
- Assembling large weldments and fixtures
- Adjusting silicon wafer stager and PCB handling equipment
- Much, much more
How it’s done?
The laser transmitter is placed onto a precision rotating base called the Leveler 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. This is a very versatile part of any laser measuring system.
