The L-706 Bore Laser is a battery-operated, diode laser that mounts magnetically in a mounting fixture or customer-supplied jig. It is generally recommended for high-accuracy bore alignment applications, such as engine blocks or compressors.
The L-706 has 2 mounting reference diameters: a mounting stud or “nosepiece” that is .7498 in. (19.04 mm) in diameter and a larger mounting diameter of 2.2498 in. (57.14 mm). The laser beam is concentric to both mounting ODs to within .0003 in. (0.0075 mm).
Micrometers on the back of the L-706 provide precise pointing (angular tilting) control over the laser beam. An operator can adjust the vertical or horizontal angle of the laser beam within .00001 in./ ft. (0.0008 mm/m) relative to the laser housing.
The L-705 Laser is used for shorter-distance applications, such as extruders and hinge bearings, and has 3 times less angular-pointing resolution as the L-706. Both lasers can be used up for applications up to 100 feet (30.5 m) from the laser.
The L-706 will operate for up to 8 hours on a battery pack with standard, replaceable 9-volt cells. An AC adapter is provided for continuous operation.
