Pinpoint Laser Systems is introducing a unique new two-dimensional Laser Microgage for precision measuring, machine alignment, calibration and other demanding industrial applications. Roll and web lines, CNC cutting and milling equipment, lathes, stamping presses, injection molding machines, extrusion systems and other production equipment are easily checked and aligned for improved operating efficiency and reduced downtime with the new Microgage. The new Microgage 2D is compact, easy to set-up and use right on the factory floor.

The Microgage combines a compact laser transmitter with a receiver and digital display. As the laser beam moves across the receiver in a vertical or horizontal path, the display provides a reading of the motion, accurate to 0.0001 inch. This new product will operate over a distance of 180 feet with a bright red beam that is quickly adaptable to many industrial applications. The Microgage 2D is easy to use with instructions that show up on the display guiding the operator through their alignment project. Several simple accessories allow for alignment of straightness, runout, parallelism, squareness, roll & web alignment, shaft & bore alignment, flatness measuring and much more.

The 2-Axis Laser Microgage operates on batteries for added convenience and all components are machined of solid aluminum with a hard anodized coating for wear resistance. A sealed push button keypad and large LCD display make the Microgage 2D easy and convenient to use in demanding industrial environments. A serial and USB interface connect to a laptop or PC and link to popular spreadsheets for plotting and analyzing date for maintenance records, customer compliance and other used. This Microgage system includes a company carrying case to store the components and is easily carried right onto the manufacturing floor.
