Hoffman Estates, Illinois – BIG KAISER officials announce the release of the Dyna Line Portable, a budget-friendly, in-machine measuring device suitable for a wide variety of shop environments.

The Dyna Line is a portable, non-contact measuring system that eliminates machining defects by measuring total runout accuracy at high rotation speeds, up to 1,300sfm, with industry-leading precision. It’s also usable as a maintenance and evaluation tool for runout accuracy of a machine spindle.

Dyna Line Portable uses the latest CMOS linear image sensors with small 1.4µ m pixels, enabling it to work at an indicated resolution of only 1µ m for higher precision cutting tool diameter and total indicated runout (TIR) readings than laser-dot measurement systems.

Due to its portability, measuring only 232mm x 132mm, the system can easily be carried around to measure different machines. It can be used with six C-cell batteries, and the eco mode feature reduces power consumption to maximize battery life, providing up to five hours of portable operation.

Dyna Line Portable has a clear, easy-to-use electronic control panel. For safety, a timer can start the measurement at a pre-programmed interval after shutting the machine door and starting tool rotation.
