Laser Cutting & Water-Jet Machines

Aligning laser-cutting and water-jet machines using conventional methods, such as levels, squares, straight edges and indicators, requires many setups and takes a lot of time. This makes it hard to schedule regular geometry checks to keep the machine producing good quality parts, leading to increased scrap rates and quality problems.  Laser alignment offers surprisingly fast alignment checks and high accuracy so production mangers can have the confidence that their throughput will not be affected by regular alignment checks. 

L-732 Precision Dual Scan® Laser Alignment System

More than 50 years of alignment experience went into the design of the L-732 Precision Dual Scan® Laser Alignment System featuring 2 automatically rotating laser planes and high-resolution targets for quickly and precisely aligning the axes of machine tools.  The L-732 features:

  • Patented technology to not only measure but also fix alignment problems up to 70% faster than conventional methods.
  • Factory-configured with either 1 horizontal and 1 vertical plane or with  2 vertical laser planes for measuring flatnessstraightnessparallelism and squareness of surfaces and lower-accuracy machine axes.
  • Precise laser planes have a flatness/straightness/leveling accuracy of .00012 in/ft. (0.01 mm/m).
  • Laser planes are mutually square with an accuracy of up to .00012 in/ft. (0.01 mm/m).
  • Measurement targets have .00002 in. (0.0005 mm) resolution and ±/.55 in. (±14 mm) measurement range.
  • Features 2 automatically rotating laser planes, each with an operating range of 100 ft (30.5 m) in radius, 200 ft. overall.
  • Target data update in real-time, so errors can be fixed without changing the setup.
  • Wireless communication with a range of up to 150 ft. (45 m).
  • Powerful Windows-based Plane5 Software, combined with advanced wireless interfaces, makes collecting and analyzing alignment data fast and easy
