Rotary Dial Machines

Most rotary-dial machines make small, high-tolerance parts and require very accurate alignment of the spindle’s axis of rotation to the  part holder. Aligning these machines using conventional methods such as indicators and alignment bars is extremely difficult and time consuming. We offer a better way.

L-703S Spindle Laser Alignment System

Many years of transfer-line spindle alignment experience using our L-700 Spindle Alignment Laser, along with many improvements, went into the newly designed L-703S 4-Axis Spindle Alignment Laser System that makes checking and adjusting the alignment of lathes and turning centers much easier and much faster:

  • Aligns lathes up to 70% faster than conventional methods such as use indicators and alignment bars.
  • Simple setup and minimal training needed.
  • With a range of up to 50 ft. (15 m), the L-703s can check the alignment of even the largest lathes.
  • Headstock-to-tailstock spindle alignment checks in 4 axes with our T-261A 4-Axis Target (V & H center and V & H angular, scanning).
  • Target data updates in real time, so alignment errors can be fixed easily and quickly without changing the setup.
  • V & H center resolution of .00001 in. (0.00025 mm) and V & H angular resolution of up to .00002 in/ft (0.002 mm/m).
  • Powerful Windows-based Spindle8 Software features our Easy-Guide™ approach that guides the user through the alignment with a 6-step process.  On-screen help instructions can help refresh you memory if you haven’t used it in a while.
  • Spindle8 also features a real-time 4-axis alignment screen to re-align spindles.  It also corrects mounting errors, making the setup and alignment go even faster.
