LMS-5 (Lathe Measuring)

LMS-5 (Lathe Measuring)

Benefits of device

  • Quick measuring of characteristics on lathe machines
  • Simple instalation and adjustement
  • System provides various types of measurements 
  • Easy to use software
  • Light and compact system


LMS-5 is a device for measuring characteristics on a lathe machines. It is based on the principle of laser beam position detection. The LMS-5 measuring system is developed for various types of measurements, from measuring axial displacement and axis position to measuring perpendicularity. The system is very simple, so it can be controlled by less experienced operators. It uses intuitive but at the same time highly functional software. The results are displayed on a computer as well as on the detector and can be used for calibration or just a quick check.

Additionally, you can buy base which allows measuring perpendicularity on CNC machines.
