LASE-ALIGN MK II: RAIL ALIGNMENT
LASER ALIGNMENT GAUGE
Switch tip alignment made simple and
accurate without the need for tape measurements
Simply apply to rail head on one rail and the
spot indicates the point directly opposite.
Twin laser heads mounted in a solid metal frame
ensure total accuracy and reliability.
Magnets ensure accurate placement.
CORRECT POSITIONING OF DRILL HOLES
Fix Lase Align Unit over first hole
centre line. Turn on laser and the red dot will
indicate exactly where on the opposite rail hole
should be drilled. Mark rail accordingly.
ADJUSTMENT OF SWITCHES
Alignment checked in seconds.
RAIL DIP MEASUREMENT
Between two datum points is clear and accurate,
and easily done at night without the need for
to suit 90mm and 255mm tip to bolt centre Targets
for nose alignment using the fixed laser and rail
dip using the adjustable laser are included in
Second adjustable laser can be set to the centre
of the Large Target. Bringing the target to
intermediate points will give an accurate measure
of Dip for stone blowing or shovel packing.

LASE-ALIGN RAIL ALIGNMENT GAUGE
Securely fix a short piece of new rail to the
floor or fixed bench parallel to and 1435mm away
from a vertical face such as a wall.
Make a vertical permanent mark or cut on the side
of the rail head which is facing the wall at its
Place Lase-Align on rail, aligning the notch with
the mark on the rail head and switch on the laser
pointing towards the wall.
Fix the self-adhesive target supplied to the wall
with the red dot positioned exactly on the centre
cross of the target.
Before use, the gauge can be checked for accuracy
on the calibration rail. Check fixed laser to
ensure that it is within the required field of
NEVER look directly at
the laser beam.
NEVER shine the laser
at anything other than the rail faces and
particularly not towards another person.
NEVER point the laser
towards oncoming trains or vehicles as the light
can obscure the drivers vision.
ALWAYS switch off the
lasers when not in use.
ALWAYS return the gauge
to its protective case when not in use.
SWITCH TIP ALIGNMENT
Place Lase-Align onto rail head aligning the
relevant datum line (90mm or 255mm) with bearer
one (toe) stock rail bolt. The integral magnets
will hold the Lase-Align in place against the
field stock rail face.
Switch on the laser.
Place Small Target on opposing rail with the
relevant datum line with bearer one (toe) stock
Adjust Lase-Align on rail head until red laser
dot shows on the opposing Small Target indicating
the point exactly opposite.
POSITIONING OF DRILL HOLES
Fix Lase Align Unit over first hole centre line.
Turn on laser and the red dot will indicate
exactly where on the opposite rail hole should be
drilled. Mark rail accordingly.
Place Lase-Align on track with the datum in line
with adjustment switch tip.
Place Small Target over opposite switch tip.
Measure nose to nose measurement from the
switching in accordance with NR/L2/TRK/2049 and
mark the rail head. Place Lase-Align on rail head
with laser directly over the mark.
Place Small Target in flange way of adjacent
crossing with the centre mark directly in line
behind the nose.
The dot should be on the centreline of the Small
Select the two datum points and place the Lase
Align on first high point, use Large Target on
the next high point, adjust the dot using one of
the adjusting screws to position it on lowest
line of Large Target, on the vertical centre
line. Ensure Lase-Align base and target are both
horizontal using levels fitted.
Move the Large Target towards the Lase-Align and
keep it level. The dot on target will show the
low points relative to datum line.
The Small Target will perform the same function
as the Large Target if preferred.
