How to measure squareness

The checking of squareness is carried out in a large number of applications, such as machine tools, coordinate measurement machines and mechanical constructions.

Measurement of squareness

When measuring squareness, first record two measurement values on a single object to create a reference for the angle. Then use the built-in prism in laser transmitter D22, which deflects the laser beam 90°, and record two new measurement values on the second object. The measurement values are converted into an angular value, showing any deviation from 90° in the second object.

What equipment do you need?

Squareness is measured with the Easy-Laser® E920 Geometric system, which can also perform straightness, flatness, level, and parallelism measurements.
