Hamar Laser Digital Library on YouTube

Hamar Laser Instruments, Inc. announces it has launched a new Digital Video Library on YouTube. The library features laser alignment training videos that were shot in our Sarasota, FL training center by our 25 year alignment veteran, Darel Ford, who is one of the top experts in the laser alignment industry.

To make it easier to find a video to answer your questions, we have organized the videos into several categories:

  •  Operational videos – These videos show the basic operations of the major components of our laser systems, such as: laser, target, readout and software. For example, there are videos for the L-743 Ultra Precision Triple Scan® Laser, A-1519-2.4ZB Wireless Target, R-1307B-2.4ZB Readout, the L-111 Laser Stand Assembly, and more.
  • Laser setup videos – These are the “nuts and bolts” of setting up a laser alignment system that can be applied to any application. We call aligning a laser to reference points, “bucking-in” or “buck-in”. In this set of videos, you’ll learn about 2-Point and 3-Point Buck-ins with our L-730/L0740 Series Scanning Lasers. These techniques can be applied to our bore and spindle lasers, too.
  • Application videos – These videos show how to apply the basic laser setup principles to specific applications with detailed step-by-step instructions. Learn about these main alignment applications: bores, extruders, surface flatness/leveling, gantry-style machine tools, lathes, roll parallelism and more.

And this is just a start as we have more videos coming, such as software and support videos! So keep stopping by for new video updates and please subscribe to our HLI DL Channel.


Digital Library Tablet
And for those who cannot access the internet or would like to have a portable training aide, we are offering a 10-inch tablet pre-loaded with all the training videos, troubleshooting guides from our Hamar Knowledge Base, manuals, application notes and brochures. The tablet has up to 6 hours of battery life to view videos and read through application notes even while “on the job.” Contact us at for a quote.

" I’m a field vibration analyst with CMS, a company that provides full-service PM support. The [X-990] is the best shaft alignment system I’ve ever used, and I’ve used it to align everything from extremely small pumps to large pumps for power plants. There’s a lot I like about Hamar’s [X-990]: You can leave the heads in one position and make the vertical and horizontal moves, a big time-saving feature. It’s extremely accurate, transmits alignment data wirelessly using Bluetooth and has a very intuitive, easy-to-use software package [Couple6]. It incorporates ambient lighting correction and has a sun filter for outdoor jobs, and it uses a PC tablet instead of a dedicated display. This tool makes us really shine as reliability pros. We’ve been very happy with Hamar Laser and the [X-990]!"
