Laser Reporting Systems for Precision Analysis of Machine Tool Calibration

CENTRIC is partnering with German manufacturer Status Pro to provide its line of machine tool laser alignment systems to the North American machine tool industry. Each system offers a customized solution for analyzing and reporting deviations in machine geometry. As Status Pro's exclusive partner in the Americas, CENTRIC offers the machine tool industry a wide range of laser measurement tools for machine installation, machine correction and preventative maintenance.

"Precision alignment and positioning accuracy is critical to consistent, productive manufacturing and quality assurance," said a company spokesperson. "Utilizing the latest in laser technology and the highest quality German engineering, each alignment system offers a faster, easier and more accurate alternative to standard granite blocks and water levels. Each self-calibrating laser combines the most precise fiber optics with Bluetooth technology to provide a quick, easy-to-read report on any aspect of machine tool geometry." Available equipment includes digital spirit levels, self-calibrating sweeping lasers and interferometers. Additionally, alignment packages include a mobile device for data analysis.

Each system will analyze and report on machine alignment and can be customized to identify various deviations to machine tool geometry, including straightness, flatness, roll and pitch errors, squareness, parallelism and pitch error compensation. "This critical precision and accuracy information improves workpiece quality and machine performance, reduces part set-up time and establishes a geometric baseline for preventative maintenance." CENTRIC also offers calibration and alignment service, ball bar testing and 5-axis head testing as well as equipment training.
