Simplified laser alignment system enables accurate measurements


Laser alignment systems are continuing to become a common sight in production facilities, manufacturing houses and even used by installation teams on customer sites. The reason for this sudden growth is the accuracy and time-saving features laser alignment systems have to offer. 

Whereas before a laser alignment system required lengthy calibration and installation LASER COMPONENTS has now simplified its design to accommodate accurate, simple, on-the-fly measurements, which can be measured by a user without the need for training.

LASER COMPONENTS’ STRAIGHTliner series is pre-calibrated and is delivered with the laser and electronic target needed to perform a positioning or monitoring task.

The STRAIGHTliner ECO features seven LEDs on each axis representing distance from the target centre, which can clearly be seen over distances up to 10m. The STRAIGHTliner ECO target features an accuracy of 0.1mm over a 10mm2 target area.

The STRAIGHTliner PRO implements a two-dimensional Position Sensing Detector (PSD) to achieve a positional accuracy of 0.001mm over a 10mm2 target area and can be connected to a windows based PC via the provided Bluetooth dongle. The wireless link communicates with the STRAIGHTliner software which displays a graphical representation of the laser position as well as providing a data recording facility for record keeping.
