Applications / Solutions

Leveling and angular measurements are vital functions for precision equipment installation, machine setup alignments and metrology in many industries within the precision engineering cluster. Imprecise leveling a machine affects its structural stability thus severely reduces the accuracy, functional and quality performances of a machine/equipment. In fact, precision levelling, angle measurement and alignment tasks essentially involve 2-dimentional planes rather than conventionally known as two independent single-axis orthogonal lines. Dual-axis simultaneous angles display and real-time continuous tracking of tilted-plane angular readings are required to guide field engineers in aligning precision object/machine to a required position accurately and effectively.

Digi-Pas® pioneered world's-first 2-axis MEMS digital leveling instrument, sensor module and inclinometer (US patented) embedded with vibrometer offers superior performance with ability to operate in a very unforgiving/harsh operating environment (e.g. high shock/impact, temperature & water) which empower application engineers/scientists in eradicating constraints previously difficult or unable to do with traditional 'bubble' spirit level or conventional pendulum/servo-based inclinometers.

With reference to user's testimonials, feedbacks, and from interacting with professionals and trade specialists in many countries over the years, countless valuable application information on "where", "how" and "why" Digi-Pas® 2-axis instruments have been used to simplify and speed up leveling/alignment/angle-setting tasks productively, with higher accuracy, improved quality and performance. The following are application samples in various industries for convenient reference. Many of these pictures are obtained resulting from our user's generous courtesy while others are provided for solely illustrative purpose.
