Fabrication Geometries

Checking the flatness, straightness and squareness of large fabrication assemblies has never been easy.  Conventional methods such as optical telescopes and theodolites are very time consuming to use, require a lot of manpower and are susceptible to significant errors. Alignment lasers are surprisingly affordable, 2-3 times faster and up to 4 times more accurate than optical methods.

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 and high-resolution targets for quickly measuring and fixing the alignment errors of large fabrication.  The L-733 features:

  • Patented technology to not only measure but also fix alignment problems up to 70% faster than conventional methods.
  • Measures multiple axes of large parts at the same time for leveling, flatness, straightness and squareness.
  • Parallelism checks any additional axes to the main axis usually with the same setup.
  • Laser planes have a flatness/straightness/leveling accuracy of .00012 in/ft. (0.01 mm/m).  See our L-743 Triple Scan® for 4x higher accuracy.
  • For measuring squareness, the laser planes are mutually perpendicular with an accuracy of up to .00012 in/ft. (0.01 mm/m).
  • Features 3 automatically rotating laser planes, each with an operating range of 100 ft. (30.5 m) in radius.
  • Wireless targets with .00002 in. (0.0005 mm) resolution and a communication range of up to 150 ft. (45 m).
  • Target data updates in real-time, so errors can be fixed without changing the setup.
  • Powerful Windows-based Plane5 Software, combined with advanced wireless interfaces, makes collecting and analyzing alignment data fast and easy.
