Alignment Supplies Inc. has released a new application for its ALiSENSOR Level geometric measurement system.

The new app, called "Flatness," is designed to enable users to measure the flatness of surfaces of a wide range of shapes and sizes through the ability of the ALiSENSOR Level to be calibrated to user-made fixtures of all sizes, the company explains.

The ability to customize the number of measurement points along both axes also enables users to perform detailed flatness measurements, while also allowing them to customize the number of measurement points for specific applications, such as performing a flatness measurement on two rails for a motor or pump installation, Alignment Supplies says.

The user is guided in every step by a live 3D model of the measurement. When the flatness measurement is completed, the user can choose reference points, and a PDF report can be created instantly with all the measurement data, including an adjustable-scale schematic drawing of the flatness results. A table with the values of all measurement points is also included in the report, as well as the minimum value, maximum value and total flatness value between the highest and lowest points.

The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store.
