Geometric Applications Straightness The straightness application is measured in two axis, where the laser beam is used as reference.The deviation in distance between the laser beam and the measurement object is measured in two or more positions with the use of a receiver. The program allows for up to 99 points to be measured. Typical applications are measurements of machine guides, machine beds, machine ways, and guide rails. Flatness Typical applications are measurements of e.g. machine beds and machine foundations. For the latter application, it is particularly beneficial to combine flatness measurement with shaft alignment when installing rotating machinery. First you check the foundation’s surface for possible irregularities, a so called pre-alignment check. If any, adjust these. Install the machine and check for possible misalignment with a laser based shaft alignment tool like the Fixturlaser NXA system. The program allows for up to 150 points (10 x 15) to be measured. Flatness This application uses a laser plane as reference. The deviation in distance between the laser plane and the measurement object is measured in one or more positions with the use of the receiver. The program allows for up to three circles with 99 points on each circle to be measured. A typical application is the measurement of flanges and machine foundations.
Geometric Applications In the straightness measurement programs, straightness can be measured in two axes. The laser beam is used as reference and the deviation in distance between the laser beam and the measurement object is measured in two or more positions, with the use of the receiver. Straightness the Clock The laser beam is set roughly parallel to a surface or an object. Up to 99 measurement points can be recorded by moving the receiver in different positions along the measurement object. The straightness of the object can be evaluated by choosing two points as reference or making a best fit calculation. The measurement can be made as a single or dual axis measurement. Straightness with the Clock Method the Clock Method Straightness with the clock method is used to determine the center position of full bores, horizontally or vertically. The laser beam is set roughly to the center line and each bore center is measured by rotating the receiver 180 degrees in each bore. Typical applications are bore measurements of bearing journals in diesel engines, compressors or gear boxes. Straightness with the Arc Angle Method Straightness with the Arc Angle method is used to determine the center position of full or half bores, with a horizontal center line. The laser beam is set roughly to the center line and each bore center is measured by rotating the receiver in three or up to nine positions in each bore. Typical applications are straightness measurements in bearing journals for e.g. compressors, turbines or machinery with split casings.
Very efficient. Competitive pricing. The reminders, I’m so busy in my job that it’s so great to have a reminder to do something. It really helps me.
I’m very happy.
