In our industry, critical machines in the production process require precise alignment to perform to specifications. Too often the alignment of machines is made by hand. If misalignment occurs, valuable operation time can be lost.
- An instantaneous set-up using Self-Centering Laser Tools is 95% faster
- The laser beam is straight to +/-.010' @ 10 feet
- Works with all sizes of chucks and collets - Accommodates bores as small as 1/32" (1mm) in diameter
- Tool is compact and portable
- Magnetic Spindle Adapter, AP56 - Minimizes the need for different diameter extension sleeves
- Reduces operating cost by saving setup time
- Significantly increases machine availability by 95%
Poorly aligned bar feeders require more energy to achieve the same results - The L56SS Alignment System is the perfect tool for:
- Reduction of maintenance cost, energy consumption and vibration
- Unplanned downtime so production is optimized
- Fewer emergency repairs
- Power: 2-"AAA" size Alkaline Batteries - Over 12 hours of continuous use
- Dimension: 6 1/2" L (16.5cm) x 3/4" Dia. (1.9cm)
- Laser Beam: 635nm @ <5mW, Class IIIa Beam
- Beam Size: 1/16" @10' with removable aperture
- Beam Divergence: .4mrad
- Level Vial: 5 minutes of arc
- Alignment: Concentric to Long Axis +/- 1/8" @100 feet
- Targets: 2 targets (1 clear and 1 white) - 1" L x 1" Diam. with grid lines every 1/8"
- "O" Ring Seal: Waterproof to 1m for 10 seconds, IP67
The L56SS Bar Feeder Alignment System uses a straight beam of laser light and two targets to center and position a bar feeder carriage at the right height to automatically supply bar stock material to a lathe spindle. The alignment of the center of the bar to the center of the spindle is critical because the bar stock is automatically pushed or fed into the lathe’s spindle in order to begin the machining process. Proper alignment reduces wear on spindle liners and guide bushings, insures correct remnant release and end of bar management and saves valuable setup time.
