Many companies need to accurately measure the three-dimensional characteristics of large objects.
An increasingly popular method is based on the use of the Laser Tracker, an instrument that measures 3D coordinates by tracing a laser beam on a retroreflective lens held in contact with the object of interest.
The Laser Tracker can measure objects both up close and at a distance of 80 meters. Single point accuracy is usually about 0.002 ″.
The Laser Tracker collects coordinate data at high speed. It improves three-dimensional measuring methods and makes completely new ways of manufacturing possible.
