Laser calibration system

Laser calibration system

The MCV-500 system from Optodyne Inc. (Compton, CA) provides linear calibration for CNC machine tools, coordinate measuring machines, lead screws and digital readouts, and other precision positioning applications. Setup is fast because only the laser head assembly and the retroreflector must be aligned. Both can mount on the machine tool, so it may not be necessary to remove fixtures and tooling during calibration.
