Alignment Supplies Inc. says it has launched three new measurement program applications for the ALiSENSOR Level geometric measurement system: Multi Values, Spindle Parallelism and Spindle Perpendicularity.

The Multi Values app is designed to enable users to record live data and multiple values from an ALiSENSOR Level unit. In addition, it allows users to simultaneously connect up to three ALiSENSOR Level units, with dynamic sensor values across three separate, yet linkable, sensor units.

The sensor units can be zeroed for relative measurements, or calibrated for absolute measurements, the company explains, adding that one sensor unit can be selected to act as a reference, so the measurement values from other units are adjusted.

The Spindle Parallelism App allows users to perform parallelism measurements on a machine with a horizontal spindle using an ALiSENSOR Level. The parallelism of the horizontal surface of the working table and the rotation axis of the spindle are measured using a process with automatic calibration. The app provides 3D graphical guidance through each step of the measurement, and the angle result is displayed in the user's unit of choice.

Like the Spindle Parallelism App, the Spindle Perpendicularity App provides 3D graphical guidance through each step of the measurement, and the angle result is displayed in the user's unit of choice.

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