Laser Pointer

Locates Edge of Plate, Reduces Scrap

  • Precision Plate Alignment Tool

The Laser Pointer allows the operator to identify the edge or other feature of the plate physically with a known location on the cutting machine.

Key Features:

  • Used by the operator to identify the edge of a plate by physically locating two points along an edge
  • To use the Laser Pointer for plate alignment, the operator activates the plate alignment routine (part program rotation)
  • Once the necessary points are identified, the entire part program is automatically offset (rotated) to the actual plate radial position
  • The part program can be executed to cut the part or nest as if the plate were square to the machine axes
  • Simplifies set-up, reduces cycle time and scrap
