Laser optical alignment system
Laser Components' LT-VA-5 system is designed for the alignment of machines, coordinate tables and linear guides as well as for making measurements in aircraft, automotive, and railway construction.
The system consists of a target, a precision laser, and a battery pack.
A laser beam is projected above the object to be measured. If one moves the target along the beam across the object to be measured, the deviation from the ideal line is displayed in two axes at the same time. According to Laser Components, this allows the parallelism, any offsets and position to be determined.
The integrated lens within the target magnifies the deviation fivefold from the ideal line specified by the laser. Because the human eye reacts very sensitively to the deviations in an image within a target area, it is possible to achieve an alignment accuracy of 0.2mm. This measurement is independent of both the distance to the object and the diameter of the laser beam.
The laser that is aligned parallel to the axis of its housing complies with laser class 2 eye safety regulations and may be operated with the battery pack included in delivery.
