Easy-Laser® E940 Machine Tool

Geometric Machine Tool Measurement

Complete system for measurement and alignment of machine tools

The Easy-Laser® E940 Machine tool system is the market’s most complete measurement system for measuring and aligning machine tools. In fact, it was voted "2013 Top Ten Industrial Products" by World Industrial Reporter! You can measure straightness, flatness, squareness, spindle pointing direction, level and much more. The transmitter's laser beam can be compared to an absolutely straight and weightless ruler, that is to say a perfect starting point for precision measurement. The measurement programs guide the user step-by-step through the measurement process* with clear graphics and instructions on the large 5.7” colour display. It is also possible to use the measurement values directly and measure and adjust as required.

Measures all kind of machine tools

The system can handle most tasks in this field, despite the fact that there are considerable variations in machine design: different types of lathe, milling machines, automatic drills, presses, water cutting machines, etc. Some examples of what you can check:
• Straightness of machine axis
• Spindle direction
• Spindle to spindle/tail stock
• Squareness between machine axes
• Flatness on machine table or machine bed
• Bearing play check
• Bearing condition (g)

A laser system is a profitable investment

Compared to conventional methods, such as dial gauges, mandrels and stones, work can be carried out much more quickly using a laser measurement system. And don't forget, the measurement result can be documented and compared to ISO10791-1 and 10791-2 used for machine tools.
There are lots of good reasons for investing in a laser system. One is that, because it is so quick to set up, the operator can check a machine much more often - if there has been an accidental collision in the machine for example. Then compare with the machine documentation to see if everything is ok before continuing production. This can prevent costly production of parts that are out of tolerance. It can also extend the life of the tools.

0.0001 mm HyperPSD™ resolution

With the Easy-Laser® E940, the user can perform almost any kind of measurement thanks to the very versatile design of the D22 laser transmitter, the measuring units and brackets. For example, the measuring unit can also act as a compact and light-weight laser transmitter. Mounted on the cleverly designed spindle bracket, it can even point the laser through the clamping pin, through the spindle.
The measuring units delivered with this system have our new HyperPSD™ precision detectors, making it possible to display a resolution of 0.0001 mm [0.000005”/0.005 mils].

Easy-Laser® E940 Machine Tool Programs


Values - The Values program can be used e.g. when one wants to measure with dial gauges and to check bearing play. Can be used wIth the standard equipment and completely normal set up on the machine!

Horizontal Machines - The measuring units (S and M) are mounted on each side of the coupling with cable or wireless communication to the display unit. Horizontally coupled machines often consist of a pump and motor, but there can also be other types of machine such as a gearboxes and compressors.

Vertical/Flange-Mounted Machines - Alignment of vertical and flange-mounted machines. Shows centre offset, angular error and shim value at each bolt.

Machine Train - For the alignment of between two and ten machines in line (nine couplings). The entire alignment can be followed live on the screen.

Soft Foot - With this program you can check that the machine is properly resting on all feet and will show which foot should be corrected (if necessary).

Cardan/Offset-Mounted Machines - Alignment of cardan/offset mounted machines. (Accessory Cardan fixture, Part No. 12-0615 is required.)

Straightness - For quick and easy straightness measurement with predefined measurement positions. For machine foundations, shafts, bearing journals, machine tools, etc. Can handle up to 150 measuring points with two zero points.

Flatness - Program to measure flatness/twist of (for example) machine foundations, machine tables, etc. Can handle up to 300 measuring points with three zero points.

Spindle Direction - For measuring the direction in which machine spindles in machine tools, drilling machines, etc., point.

Squareness - For measurement of squareness in machines and installations.

Flange Flatness - This program allows you to measure 1 to 5 circles of measurement points, i.e. inner, middle and outer circles, in order to see the taper of the flanges. Each circle can have 3-180 measurement points. The program guides you graphically step-by-step through the entire measurement, which quickens the measurement process.

Flange Parallelism - This program enables you to measure and check the parallelism of the flanges of a tower.

Offset and Angle - Shows centre offset and angular error between two shafts, for example. Also suitable for dynamic measurements.

Belt & Chain (Sheave/Pulley) Alignment - Using the system you can align sheaves and pulleys with digital precision. Adjustment of the machines is displayed in real time on the screen, with readings for angle and axial displacement in both the vertical and horizontal axes, as well as an adjustment value for the front or rear foot pair. The result can be documented as normal. (Requires the E170 BTA accessory.)

Vibration Measurement and Bearing Condition - You can measure vibration levels (mm/s, inch/s) and bearing condition (g-value). The program guides the user through the points to measure on the machine: vertical, horizontal and axial. The result can be documented as normal. (Requires the E285 Vibrometer probe accessory.)
