Pinpoint Laser Systems® has introduced the new Pinpoint Proline alignment kit, a visual laser system for checking and measuring straightness, flatness, squareness, parallelism, and leveling.
The kit combines the features of a transit, an infinitely long straightedge, and laser alignment system in one compact, portable product.
The unit produces a collimated laser reference beam that forms a bull's-eye pattern for visual alignment and precise measuring. This laser is enclosed within a precision-machined housing to help ensure that the laser reference beam is parallel to the side and base surfaces within 0.003 degree, or less than 0.030 in. at 50 ft. This level of accuracy is suitable for setting straight machinery runs, aligning production equipment, transferring mechanical points, locating shafts and bearing mounts, and aligning belts and pulleys.
The kit includes a leveling base so the laser can measure flat planes and machined surfaces. A 90-degree laser prism is used for squaring machinery and checking the parallelism of rails, tracks, and guides.
