Align uses simple, readily available technology – two laser diodes and an accelerometer – to accurately measure drilling positions. It was designed to resolve the difficulty of aligning multiple wall hooks or screws after the first one has been placed.
The laser diodes determine the first screw’s distance from the ceiling. This data is sent to to the level indicator, which assists the user with finding the correct level at which to drill the next hole. The accelerometer helps users avoid inaccuracies in case of slight bends. The level indication arrows on the rear of the drill incorporate LED lights that provide guidance on position.
