Laser belt square

August 1, 2011




Lightweight and portable, the 2-lb. Flexco laser belt square can be used by traveling maintenance crews to find a belt’s average centerline without conventional measuring methods. To square the belt, an operator attaches the magnetic targets to the conveyor sidewalls, positions the belt square on the future cut line and depresses the power button. Once the lasers are activated, the square is moved toward the side of the belt until the spring-loaded pin extends below the belt surface. Using the pin as a pivot point, the lasers are aligned with the edge of the belt, and a cut line appears. The belt square operates on battery power and can be used for 60 continuous hours without changing batteries.
