In our last post, Paper Machine Applications Where Laser Trackers Excel, we provided areas within a paper machine that can benefit from the use of a laser tracker. We also noted however, that for most areas of a paper machine, the use of traditional optical alignment tooling continues to be the best choice for gathering alignment inspection data. This is also true for alignment inspections in many other industrial settings such as coating/laminating, corrugating and printing facilities. In this post, we provide the definitions for some of the terminology you may hear during an optical alignment project.
