Many machines, one laser! The L-702SP 5-Axis Machine Tool and Spindle Alignment system is a powerful and versatile alignment system that is highly accurate, fast and easy to set up and can be used for many different machine tool applications. Its unique design makes it especially useful on difficult-to-align multiturn machines and 5-axis horizontal boring mills.
The L-702SP is mounted directly into a spindle chuck and the laser beam aligned to it’s rotation axis. A perpendicular scan plane then measures other axes for squareness and straightness. It also features our T-1295 5-Axis Target that measures straightness, spindle alignment and pitch/yaw angular values for the linear axes. Or use our optional T-1296 Hi-Resolution 5-Axis Target for double the resolution and accuracy!
It’s very easy to set up and use. For example, it only takes 2 setups to measure all the axes of a multiturn machine!

The L-702SP laser kit can align many different kinds of machines from boring mills to lathes even injection molding machines. It is especially useful on smaller, enclosed machine tools due to is small size and ability to mount directly in the spindle.
Measure headstock spindle-axis parallelism with the lathe-bed and saddle guide-rails, headstock-to-tailstock alignment and spindle-to-subspindle alignment. With a measuring range of up to 65 feet (20 m), even the longest lathe bed is easy to measure for parallelism to the spindle axis, eliminating the need for expensive and heavy test bars.
The L-702’s ultra-high resolution of .00002 in. (0.0005 mm) combined with MultTurn10 software to correct mounting errors produces a very accurate alignment, less than .0001 in. (0.0025 mm) under good environmental conditions. This extremely high level of accuracy can dramatically improve machine performance and reduce scrap rates.
Our T-1295/T-1296 5-Axis Wireless Targets are designed work with our L-702SP Spindle/Machine Tool Laser. With Bluetooth communication and multiple measuring axes, the T-1295/T-1296 targets are multi-purpose targets that can be used for many different applications. The target offer these 3 measurement modes (5 axes):
Use the L-702SP Spindle Laser, with it perpendicular scan plane, and our T-1295 5-Axis Target switched to Scan Mode to measure the straightness/squareness of the cross slide, turret travel or machining axes on multi-turn machines. It takes just 2 setups to check all the axes of a multiturn machining center!
The T-1295 5-Axis Target’s alignment values update in real time, so without changing the setup, alignment errors can be quickly fixed, while watching the software’s displays up date each adjustment. MultiTurn software also quickly collects the lathe bed’s straightness data, analyzes it, recommends shim and moves values for headstock and tailstock alignments. In most cases, alignment times can be reduced by 60-70%.
The L-702SP 5-Axis Alignment System is so easy to set up that you can do a quick alignment check in 15 minutes and the full alignment data in 25–30 minutes on most machines – even multiturns. Our MultiTurn10 Software even corrects for mechanical mounting errors to provide the most accurate lathe alignment on the market today!
An easy-to-follow, 6-step alignment procedure is built right into MultiTurn10, along with popup instructions, that makes what can be a complicated alignment much simpler and easier to learn. Large color graphical displays allow the alignment data to be seen up to 20 feet (6.5 m) away.
