Pinpoint Laser Systems has introduced a new data interface accessory called “Capture” for the popular Laser Microgage industrial measuring and alignment system.   Capture allows operators to quickly grab measurement readings from four remote laser receivers to analyze the alignment and performance of their production machinery and industrial equipment.   The software is a powerful, Windows-based application that quickly records incoming readings, displays results, allows for added control and interfaces cleanly with spreadsheets and statistical analysis packages.  Measurement readings can also be stored directly in the handheld, portable Laser Microgage display and then uploaded to a PC or laptop for graphical display, analysis, printing and storage.   The Laser Microgage and Capture are easy to use and highly versatile delivering a precision of 0.0001 inch (0.0025 mm) over a working range of 180 feet (55 meters).  

The Laser Microgage is used throughout industry for checking the alignment of production machinery and equipment.  The precise laser reference beam is ideal for checking straightness, flatness, squareness, parallelism, bore alignment and many other geometrical parameters.  Alignment with the Laser Microgage reduces downtime, increases production quality, saves money and ultimately increases manufacturing profits.   Pinpoint products are designed and manufactured right here in the United States and incorporate durable, solid metal packaging, stainless steel components and quality glass optics for years of reliable use on the factory floor.   A wide assortment of accessories enables users to adapt their Laser Microgage to new applications and reduce their dependence on outside alignment contractors.  Laser Microgage systems can be found in steel mills, ship yards, aircraft plants, medical applications and more.
