Hamar Laser Instruments, Inc., a world leader in laser alignment, 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 affordable, capable, and versatile alignment system that excels in a variety of applications.

“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 have always strived at making 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 unique new T-1295 and T-1296 Targets offer Bluetooth-wireless communication and up to .00001 in. (0.25 µm) resolution. They can align 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 ideal 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, multi-turns 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 multi-turns; and includes:

  • 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
