Easy-Laser® E970 - Parallelism

For parallelism measurement and more!

For parallelism measurement of rolls and other objects in numerous applications. The E970 is especially suitable when many objects are to be measured and aligned, and when the distances are long. Any chosen object or the baseline can be used as a reference.

Easy-Laser® E970 Parallelism system use the traditional method where a laser beam is pointed alongside the machine, and then deflected 90 degrees towards the measurement object by a penta prism.

The prism is moved along the beam, which is deflected to each roll that is to be measured, and maybe aligned. Both ends of the roll are measured, and you get an angular value which is compared to the reference line (base line) or a reference roll. Besides paper machines, printing machines and rolling mills you can also measure and align rails, overhead tracks, metal sheet cutters and many other types of machines.

The E970 is especially suitable when many objects are to be measured and aligned, and when measuring over a long distance. The maximum distance with a standard system is 80 metres, the number of measurement objects can be several hundred, but is more likely limited by other practical factors than the system software! The alignment of the rolls can be performed in live mode with instant feedback. You can add, remove and remeasure objects any time during measurement. The result is displayed both graphically and digitally in a table, and a PDF report can be produced directly on-site. Then transfer the results to your PC and the data base software EasyLink™ (included).

Versatile system for many different kinds of measurements

Easy-Laser® E970 is not only limited to parallelism measurement. You can also use the system to measure level, straightness and flatness on wire sections (suction boxes), flatness on foundations and straightness of rolls. With a few accessories you can also do shaft alignment. This makes the E970 a very cost effective solution for your maintenance department.

If you regularly work with machine alignment, where the task at hand is always different, then you are used to not knowing the circumstances until you are onsite. Surprises are an everyday occurrence, an adaptable measuring system is a saving grace! Read more

Measurement programs

The featured programs below are the most common used with this system. Please click here for a complete overview of possibilities.
*=accessories needed

Parallelism*

For parallelism measurement of rolls, rails, overhead tracks, gantries, metal sheet cutters, production lines, etc. Two methods are available: measurement with Angular prism or with Angle detector E2.

Straightness measurement

With our program for measuring straightness, you can easily measure long shafts, rolls, bearings, bases, machine structures etc. All you have to do is define a number of measuring points, in advance or while measuring. You will be able to get the result for both the horizontal and vertical alignment, graphically as well as digitally. 

Flatness measurement

Program to measure flatness/twist of (for example) machine bases, machine tables, etc. With advanced "best-fit" calculations.

Squareness

For measurement of squareness in machines and installations.

Display unit E51

The display unit for the E series enables you to work more efficiently and for longer than ever before thanks to several innovative solutions. It is also ergonomically designed with easy-to-grip rubber cladding and robust construction.

 

Never lose power

The display unit is equipped with our Endurio™ Power management system. This ensures that you never have to stop in the middle of a measurement because the battery has run out.

Ergonomic design

The display unit has a thin, easy-to-grip and rubber coated profile that ensures a secure grip. It has large well-spaced buttons that give clear feedback when pushed. In addition, the two Enter buttons make the system suitable for both right and left-handed users. The display screen has clear graphics that guide you through the measurement process.

Personal settings

You can create a user profile where you can save your personal settings. You can also have different settings for different types of measurements. It makes work faster!

Language selection

You can choose the language that you want to appear on screen. English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Polish, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are available. 

Upgrading

If you wish to expand functionality in the future, the software in the display unit can be upgraded via the internet or by connecting a USB memory containing the new software. In this way you will also have access to the measurement programmes that we develop for new purposes in the future.
