Alignment Telescope with Digital CCD system

check our YouTube channel for more product videos

Micro Alignment Telescopes with built in optical micrometers

The micro alignment telescope allows the user to set reference lines of sight for applications such as the alignment and measurement of bearings and bores.

Digital Alignment Telescope

A high resolution digital imaging system using CCD technology.  Software automatically senses the centre position of the target and calculates displacement from a set datum to ensure a fast setup time with repeatable readings.

Alignment telescopes without micrometers

The alignment telescope allows the user to set reference lines of sight by utilising the parallelism and co-axiality of its optical to mechanical axis providing alignment axis of 0.05 mm over 30 metres.

Micro alignment laser system

Micro Alignment Laser is a laser measuring instrument equipped with the latest optical and electronic components for precise measuring of straightness, flatness, parallelism, perpendicularity, alignment and much more.

Micro Alignment Telescope with CCTV digital camera

CCTV camera and software allows users to select a range of magnifications from x2 to x8 for ease of viewing.

Alignment Telescope with Digital CCD system

Micro Alignment Telescopes with built in optical micrometers

The micro alignment telescope allows the user to set reference lines of sight for applications such as the alignment and measurement of bearings and bores. 

By use of two precision micrometers X,Y displacement can be measured with accuracies of 0.05 mm over 30 metres from a reference line of sight.

Taylor Hobson's range of precision targets and accessories further enhance this range making them truly versatile for a large number of applications.

These instruments provide precision while maintaining the robustness required for the most exacting of environments. Parameters include alignment, parallelism, squareness, level/flatness and straightness for applications from alignment of propellor shaft bearings to aircraft frame alignment, features include;

  • Mechanical to optical concentricity to less than 6 um
  • Parallelism of optical line of sight to mechanical axis less than 3 arc secs
  • Typical accuracy 5-10um over 3m
  • X,Y precision micrometers with 0.02 mm resolution
  • Wide range of accessories to assist in alignment and measurement

Digital Alignment Telescope

A high resolution CCD system with software automatically senses the centre position of the dedicated CCD targets then calculates of displacement from a set datum to ensure a fast set up time with repeatable readings, as well as digitally outputting the result.  This is particularly useful on large alignment projects such as aircraft jigs or large machine tools since a single operator can make measurements and adjustments along the construction or fixture while the target is displayed on the monitor.

  • Clear digital output of X and Y minimises operator error
  • Graphical output for reporting & storage of results
  • Repeatability of measurement provided by CCD
  • Rapid calculation of results for quick and easy assessment
  • Ideal for automatic remote monitoring with datalogging
  • Typical accuracies: 5µm over 3m (decreasing with distance)

Alignment telescopes without micrometers

Similar to the micro Alignment Telescope without the X and Y micometers, the alignment telescope allows the user to set true lines of sight by utilising the parallelism and co-axiality of its optical to mechanical axis providing alignment axis of 0.05 mm over 30 metres.

Parameters include alignment, parallelism, squareness, level/flatness and straightness for applications from alignment of propellor shaft bearings to aircraft frame alignment, features include;

  • Mechanical to optical concentricity to less than 6 um
  • Parallelism of optical line of sight to mechanical axis less than 3 arc secs
  • Precision Cylindrical datum for simple fixturing
  • Wide range of accessories to assist in alignment and measurement

Micro alignment laser system

Micro Alignment Laser is a laser measuring instrument equipped with the latest optical and electronic components for precise measuring of straightness, flatness, parallelism, perpendicularity, alignment and much more.

It comprises a highly stable laser transmitter with integrated micro-adjustment for fine alignment of the laser beam, a high-precision position sensitive device (PSD) receiver with a complete electronic processing system and software for use on a laptop, notebook or desktop PC.

The software provides users with comprehensive support for extensive geometrical measuring including recording of data in reports.

  • Simple compact design
  • Easy icon driven software
  • Digital output with clear graphical display and report facility
  • Battery operated with blue tooth wireless technology

Micro Alignment Telescope with CCTV digital camera

CCTV camera and software allows users to select a range of magnificatios from x2 to x8 for ease of viewing in awkward or long distance applications. The camera adaptor allows fine adjustment for focus and centrality of the image which is viewd using dedicated software on a laptop PC. 

  • Choice of image magnifications up to x8
  • Minimises eye fatigue
  • Uses notebook PC with dedicated software 
  • Image can be viewed in difficult awkward locations
