Use Of A Laser To Measure Squareness

Squareness is a term used to define the point where one plane forms a perfect 90 degree square angle with another intersecting plane.

Traditionally, this was measured using a metal square. A metal square can however lose its perfect squareness over time, resulting in inaccurate measurements, and can only be practically used to measure squareness on relatively small objects.

This is where a laser alignment system can be used to rapidly measure squareness without these disadvantages.

There are various different laser alignment systems available for the precise and accurate assessment of squareness. Some use a prism to reflect a laser beam at a precise 90 degree angle, while others use multiple orthogonal laser beams. Using a laser alignment system will allow you to precisely measure so that true square can quickly, easily and accurately be determined for optimal manufacturing efficiency.
