Danbury Hamar Laser introduces two new lasers
Hamar Laser Instruments, a family-owned business in Danbury for more than 50 years, has developed two new spindle alignment lasers for precision accuracy for lathes, turning centers and other machinery, the company announced this week.
The L-702 Spindle Alignment Laser is for straight-line alignments and the L-702SP laser adds a perpendicular scan plane to the L-702.
“We wanted to add a compact squareness-checking capability to our spindle lasers, so we redesigned our field-tested L-700 Spindle Laser and brought out the L-702 and L-702SP Spindle Lasers,” said Rod Hamar, president of Hamar Laser. “For 20 years, our spindle lasers have helped customers reduce tooling costs and scrap rates, while reducing downtime to increase throughput. Remarkably easy to use and highly accurate, our lasers are up to 70 percent faster than conventional methods.”
Martin Hamar, Rod’s father, founded the business 51 years ago out of his home. Hamar Laser designs, tests, and manufacturers laser alignment equipment, particularly for the manufacturing machine industry. Hamar’s customers, past or present, include GE, Sikorsky, Boeing, Caterpillar, Westinghouse and Lockheed.
Martin Hamar also has 28 patents.
Hamar Laser employs 25 people at its Danbury headquarters. It also has offices in Georgia, Florida, Michigan and India.
Rob Martin said the new line of lasers are fast and easy to use, similar to the company’s other products. Upon employing the lasers, the data is sent to Hamar Laser’s Lathe9 Software for recording and analysis with a measurement resolution of .000001 inch.
Hamar Laser is exhibiting at the International Manufacturing Technology Show behind held this week in Chicago. Representatives are demonstrating the new lasers at the show.
