Water-jet Machines

Aligning laser cutting machines and water-jet machines using conventional methods, such as levels, squares, straight edges and indicators, requires numerous setups and takes a lot of time. For these reasons facility managers often cut back severely on machine calibration, which can result in lower production rates, poor product quality, wasted material and costly machine downtime. Our affordable system solves these problems by dramatically simplifying and speeding up the alignment process.

L-732 Precision Dual Scan® Laser Alignment System

Our more than 50 years of alignment experience went into the design of the L-732 Precision Dual Scan® Laser Alignment System featuring two automatically rotating laser planes and high resolution targets for quickly and precisely aligning laser cutting machines and water-jet machines, as well as virtually all roll machinery and other similar applications with lower accuracy requirements.

  • Uses patented technology to not only measure but also fix alignment problems in a fraction of the time needed with conventional methods.
  • Features 2 automatically rotating laser planes, each with an operating range of 100 ft (30.5 m) in radius.
  • Factory-configured with either 2 vertical laser planes (for roll alignment) or 1 horizontal and 1 vertical plane (for measuring flatness, straightness and squareness of surfaces and lower-accuracy machine axes).
  • Precise laser planes have a flatness of 2 arc seconds (.00012 in/ft or 0.01 mm/m) in a 180°/360° sweep and 1 arc second (.00006 in/ft or 0.005 mm/m) in a 90º sweep.
  • Laser planes are mutually square with an accuracy of up to 2 arc seconds (.00012 in/ft or 0.01mm/m).
  • High-resolution wireless targets with a range of up to 100 ft (30.5 m) provide real-time alignment data, 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.
