Compact System Aligns Smaller Machine Tools and Multiturns

Hamar Laser Instruments, Inc. has introduced the T-1295 and T-1296 5-Axis Multi-Purpose Scan & Spindle Targets and four new laser fixtures that transform its L-702SP 5-Axis Machine/Spindle Alignment System into a more capable and versatile alignment system for a wide variety of applications, the company reported.

"We have never believed in making a one-size-fits-all laser system, as our competitors typically offer," said Rod Hamar, President of Hamar Laser Instruments. "Instead, we always strive to make the best laser we can for a specific application or group of applications, which is why our lasers are highly praised. Our new T-1295 and T-1296 5-Axis Targets, however, transform our L-702SP into that rare laser that does a great job for a wide variety of applications. Our first `combo' laser, as we call it."

Hamar Laser's T-1295 and T-1296 Targets offer Bluetooth-wireless communication and up to .00001" (0.25 µm) resolution. They are capable of aligning multiple machine axes in three measurement modes: 2-axis center, 2-axis angular and single-axis scanning. Expanding the capabilities of the L-702SP Laser, the targets work with Hamar Laser's new MultiTurn10 Software and are suited for many applications, including spindle alignments (center and angular); flatness, straightness and squareness of linear axes and guideways on boring mills, gantries, lathes, machining centers, multiturns and VTLs; injection molding machines; and flatness and straightness of surfaces. They are especially useful on hard-to-align multiturn machines. The T-1296 Target is a high-resolution version of the T-1295 Target for taking ultra-accurate straightness and pitch/yaw measurements.

The new fixture suite is comprised of four mounting fixtures made specifically for the L-702SP Laser and T-1295 and T-1296 Targets to aid in measuring hard-to-check axes on enclosed machining centers, boring mills and multiturns. It includes these fixtures:

  • L-702MB Laser Magnetic Base Fixture
  • L-702RA Right-Angle Laser/Target Spindle Fixture
  • T-242 Target Straightness Measuring Base
  • T-243 Target Flatness Measuring Base
