Easy-Laser in the Wind Power Industry

Flange Flatness Measurement Innovation with an eye on Safety

Easy-Laser® is one of the world’s largest suppliers of laser measurement systems to the wind power industry. The company is also an innovative leader in the development of the spin technology laser system (see E915 Flange flatness Measurement Tool) that allows the flange flatness measurement of a tower to be performed by one technician instead of two. This obviously reduces the cost (labor), the E915 is also wireless which means the flange flatness measurement can be completed in less than half the time.
