The 90-Line Beam Bender turns the reference beam from the Microgage 2000 and turns it exactly 90 degrees, making it ideal for squaring machinery and equipment, setting and adjusting parallel tracks and rails, aligning web rollers, idlers and wheels, checking gantry travel and position, monitoring and adjusting machine tools, and assisting in geometric alignment. The existing laser is square to the incoming beam within 0.0006 degrees, about 0.001 inches over an 8-ft distance. The aluminum block, anodized-coated housing allows several adjustments, which can rotate the existing beam through a full plane. It can be adjusted with a precision rotary mount, and positioning the 90-Line is easy with its 2-axis stage mount.
