Aircraft Assembly

Aircraft assembly is particularly complex and demanding, making it difficult to get accurate and repeatable alignment results while maintaining productivity on the assembly line. References can be hard to establish and multiple crews are often working in the same space at once. Our systems excel in these challenging environments.

L-733 Precision Triple Scan® Laser Alignment System

More than 50 years of alignment experience went into the design of the L-733 Precision Triple Scan® Laser Alignment System featuring 3 automatically rotating laser planes with plenty of accuracy to meet today’s ever-tightening tolerances:

  • Patented Triple Scan® technology not only measures but also fixes alignment problems in a fraction of the time needed with conventional methods.
  • Can be aligned to any 2 of the aircraft’s 3 main reference datums simultaneously, making it possible to work in all 3 orthogonal laser planes at the same time.
  • 3 automatically rotating laser planes, each with an operating range of 100 ft. (30.5 m) in radius.
  • Flatness-measuring accuracy of up to .00012 in/ft (0.01 mm/m) in a 180°/360° sweep and .00006 in/ft (0.005 mm/m) in a 90º sweep.
  • Squareness-measuring accuracy of up to .00012 in/ft (0.01 mm/m).
  • Measurement resolution of .00002 in. (0.0005 mm) and an accuracy of ±.0001 in. (±0/0038 mm).
  • Wireless targets have a range up to 150 ft (45 m) from the laser.
  • Powerful Windows-based alignment software makes collecting and analyzing alignment data fast and easy.
