General Bore Alignment

Existing methods for measuring the alignment of bores, such as optical borescopes or tight wire, are time consuming. It is also very challenging to get good repeatability from operator to operator with these methods, especially in small bores or long-distance applications. We offer a better way.

L-706 Self-Centering Bore Alignment System

Our 50 years of alignment experience went into the design of the L-706 Self-Centering Bore Alignment System that makes checking the alignment and concentricity of bores much easier and much faster:

  • Easy-to-use, patented self-centering bore adapters only require 1 measurement per bore.  No 0º and 180º measurements at each location!
  • Setup < 15 minutes; bore alignment data can often be analyzed in 30 minutes or less.
  • Industry’s highest range of bore diameters: Our targets and adapters can easily measure bore diameters from .25 to 40 in. (10 to 1,000 mm).
  • Industry’s highest measurement resolution of .00002 in. (0.0005 mm) and highest accuracy to ±.0001 in. in 10 ft (±0.0025 mm in 3 m).
  • Use simple X-Y readouts or add optional Windows-based Bore9 Software to record data, analyze results and produce reports.
  • Many different target options, including: self-centering, see-through, spherical bearing, half-bore and large range to fit almost any bore alignment application.
  • Several laser mounting options, including: external on a floor stand, internal using self-centering bore adapters and gearbox mounts.
