PRESS RELEASE

Peabody, Massachusetts, November 2010:   Pinpoint Laser Systems is introducing a new precision Microgage Bore Alignment Kit for industrial applications.  Our newest product is perfectly suited for aligning extrusion presses, rams, precision screws, lathes and turning centers, propeller shafts and stern tubes, bar feeders, and many other demanding applications.  This Microgage Bore Alignment Kit is compact, precise, easy to set up, and most importantly, affordable - for small and large firms alike. 

This unique Microgage Bore Alignment System consists of a cylindrical laser that can be adapted to bores of all sizes.  The laser reference beam is projected to a digital receiver that is held in a mount with a similar precision bore diameter.  This mount is reversible so that the receiver can catch the laser beam coming either through the bore tube or from the outside, and measurement readings are then transmitted to a handheld display.  Readings as small as 0.0001 inch (0.003mm) define the bore or shaft’s alignment and guide the user to what changes are needed for optimal performance.   Measurements can be made over a range of 150 feet, and simple fixtures expand the options for aligning a variety of machines.  A computer interface can store readings and connect the Microgage to common programs and spreadsheets.  The Microgage Bore Alignment Kit is highly versatile for use either on the factory floor or in the field and fits into a small carrying case for easy storage.

Since 1992 Pinpoint has offered a broad line of easy-to-use products that incorporate lasers, optics, electronics, and solidly built mechanical features. Customers in industries as diverse as semiconductor equipment manufacturers to pet food manufacturers use the tool for both routine and complex measuring and alignment tasks deliver measuring resolution of 0.0001 inch and work over ranges of 180 feet.   Pinpoint’s measuring equipment is actively used in the aerospace industry,  machine shops, paper and textile mills, shipbuilding facilities, extrusion plants, and electronic assembly facilities, to name a few.  Pinpoint has worked closely with many manufacturers to develop specialized alignment systems for robotic applications, medical scanning devices, and numerous other applications.
