Abstract

A single light source having a reticle with dual apertures can provide both an aligning beam and illumination beam for a work station. Referring to the drawing, light from source 1 passes through reticle 2 having small aperture 3 and large aperture 4 and is focused by lens 5 on workpiece 6. The workpiece is supported on a table surface (not shown) that can be moved between levels Z1 and Z2. When workpiece 6 is initially emplaced at level Z1, beam 7 from small aperture 3 is used to align the area 8 of interest on the workpiece. When finally positioned, the workpiece is raised to level Z2 by the supporting table and the larger beam 9 from aperture 4 illuminates the work area which may be readied for a camera or tool 10.
