Setup of Control Monuments

Optically aligning and leveling equipment based on elevations, control monuments, and baselines will reduce potential problems later. We are seasoned in the setup, location, and placement of floor-alignment control monuments. This includes establishing centerlines for machinery axes as well as baseline references. These monuments are located throughout a plant floor while CAD coordinates are used to establish machine line footprints. Control monuments help us optically align and level each machine section as they are set into place in accordance with each footprint.
