We use lasers on almost all of our equipment. Our patented reflected laser beam technology makes our tools 20 times more accurate than any other laser alignment system on the market. We wanted to take time to give a brief summary on where the laser comes from, and how it helps you as a consumer. The term “laser” originated as an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser is any device that emits light through optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of photons. They can be focused on very tiny spots, or can be launched into a beam to concentrate their power on a longer distance.
On May 16, 1960, Theodore H. Maiman operated the first functioning laser. As you can see, it hasn’t been around that long, just over 50 year’s total. Since then, it obviously has evolved and been implemented into various uses for multiple things. For us, we use it to accurately measure and align items in order to maintain productivity. Because lasers have the ability to focus on tiny spots and can emit a light a longer distance, we can more accurately align items versus pi tapes or optical tooling. For us, the laser has transformed our company. Our products use lasers in order to maintain accuracy which means you do not have to waste time on refreshing your memory or on second guessing yourself during the actual work. If the laser has only been in functional use for 52 years, and we have nearly 30 years of laser alignment experience, it means we’ve been ahead of the game for years. We appreciate the laser and where it can take us in the future. It continues to evolve, and we’re excited to see where it goes.
