The X-Series™ Lasers streamline alignment by recording position and angular data using the software while rotating the laser and target, capturing up to 16 points/second. This method calculates and subtracts mounting errors from the raw data, providing highly accurate alignment without manual calculations and offering a hassle-free experience.

 

Unlocking Enhanced Precision and Flexibility with Dual-Beam™ Detector Technology

 

Our patented Dual-Beam™ technology is a game-changer in laser alignment systems. It allows for simultaneous measurement of offset and angle with just one PSD, boosting system accuracy by an impressive 50%. We conduct a meticulous 500-point calibration on the PSD, setting a new industry standard for accuracy that surpasses competitors’ systems by up to 15 times. With this level of precision and accuracy, you can trust the performance of our Dual-Beam™ technology.

 

 

But the innovation continues beyond there. With Dual-Beam™ technology, you gain an extraordinary angular range of +/- 12 degrees, ensuring consistent laser targeting even in long-distance applications. Plus, our angular resolution surpasses the highest angular tolerance by a factor of 10, guaranteeing unmatched precision in alignment processes.

 

Our blinking laser technology seamlessly compensates for ambient light variations to elevate performance further, ensuring reliable measurements regardless of environmental conditions.

 

 

Outperforming Competitor’s Mid-Range Systems: Introducing Entry-Level Dual-Fan™ Detector Technology

 

Our Dual-Fan™ technology redefines entry-level shaft alignment systems, delivering unmatched economy, versatility, and accuracy. With Dual-Fan™, you can achieve exact measurements of offset and angularity simultaneously, thanks to two 0.5-degree laser fans and two 20 mm PSDs.

 

 

Unlike competitors’ lasers, which pose safety concerns with wider fan spreads, our specially designed laser fan extends only to 1 inch (25.4 mm) at 15 feet (4.6 m), ensuring safer operation without compromising accuracy.

 

Moreover, Dual-Fan™ offers a full angular measuring range across the entire operating distance between the laser and the target. This eliminates the limitations of the “cross-fire” lasers face, which experience restricted angular measuring ranges beyond 3 feet (and 1 m). Conducts a meticulous 40-point calibration procedure on the P to further enhance accuracy, making our Dual-Fan™ technology up to 5 times more precise than competing mid-priced systems. Blinking laser-fan technology also compensates for ambient light, guaranteeing consistent environmental performance.
