Positioning, Alignment, and Cross Lasers
Linear positioning and cross lasers for positioning and aligning workpieces on bridge saws, fabrication centers, and machine tools. Amastone offers two types of positioning lasers: alignment lasers and cross lasers
Linear alignment lasers
A linear alignment laser (also known as positioning laser or guideline laser) produces a very bright red or green line visible even in well well lit working environments and is used to align tools in numerous applications requiring the pre-alignment of materials such as bridge saws for cutting marble or granite, wood production equipment (such as log saws), and metalworking (shears and snips).
The bright-line of the laser traces out the boundaries of the work indicating, for example, the exact point where a blade will cut.
On a bridge-saw used to cut stone, for example, an alignment laser would s generally be securely mounted with a special bracket to the bridge so that the line moves in parallel to and the exact same distance as the bridge (generally, along the Y-axis). When well aligned, both the line of cut and the cutting edge of the diamond blade are illuminated.
Precise alignment facilitates precision work, saves costly material, and improves occupational safety.
- Stone – bridge saw lasers: slabs alignment saws, cutters, and fabrication centers
- Lumber and wood production: trunk alignment, trimming, edging, band saws
- Metalworking: workpiece lathes and turning centers
- Plastic processing: alignment of sheets and pieces on CNC machines
- … all other applications where a piece needs to be aligned or processed on a machine.
We also offer cross-projection lasers. These lasers are generally used on CNC machines and bridge saws to indicate the zero point of a given job.
Cross lasers are usually mounted on the machine’s spindle when setting up the job to project the 2 perpendicular directions (forming the cross) in relation to the workbench. After alignment has been completed, the laser is removed from the spindle and replaced with the blade or tool.
Our bridge-saw lasers produce a clean, powerful line visible under high-light conditions. We offer red and green light lases with a variety of housings.
