Aligning extruders can take hours and hours and it’s hard to find methods that actually work. Not aligning extruders causes the barrels and screws to wear out much sooner than desired, leading to excessive costs for replacements. There is a much better way

L-705 Self-Centering Extruder Borescope Alignment System

Our 50 years of alignment experience went into the design of the L-705 Self-Centering Extruder Borescope Alignment System that makes checking the alignment of extruder barrels to gearboxes much easier and much faster:

  • Very fast setup in only 10 to 15 minutes; by contrast, an optical borescope can take a couple of hours to set up.
  • In most cases, extruders can be completely aligned in less than 1½ hours including setup, which is about 3 times faster than optical borescopes.
  • Self-centering chuck fixture holds the laser in the gearbox counter-bore.
  • 2-axis targets with self-centering bore adapters automatically find the center of the bore with no moving parts, allowing nearly instantaneous bore measurements for alignment or straightness.
  • Extruder barrel diameters from 1.2 to 18 in. (30 to 458 mm) can easily be measured by the L-705’s targets and adapters.
  • High resolution of .00002 in. (0.0005 mm) and high accuracy to .0002 in. (0.005 mm).
