Rectangular Flatness

Typical applications are measurements of e.g. machine beds and machine foundations. For the latter application, it is particularly beneficial to combine flatness measurement with shaft alignment when installing rotating machinery. First, you check the foundation’s surface for possible irregularities, a so-called pre-alignment check. If any, adjust these. Install the machine and check for possible misalignment with a laser-based shaft alignment tool like the NXA Ultimate system.

How to do a Rectangular Flatness Measurement

This application uses a laser plane as a reference. The deviation in distance between the laser plane and the measurement object is measured in one or more positions with the use of the receiver. The program allows for up to 150 points (10 x 15) to be measured.

1. Configuration

  • Quick and easy to configure
  • Pre-defined configuration

2. Measurement

  • Distinct overall view of the measurement
  • Instant display of measurement object’s position
  • Color-coded measurement points
  • Measurement points can be registered in any order you prefer

3. Adjustment

  • Live values during the adjustment phase
  • The angle guide displays the accepted (green) measurement point registration area
  • Green arrows show you in which direction to adjust towards zero
  • Color-coded measurement values
