For more than 30 years, API has pioneered laser-based equipment for measurement and calibration. API’s founder and CEO, Dr. Kam Lau, invented the laser tracker while working at USA’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to allow industrial robot accuracies to be determined.
Today, API is a global company offering not only the state-of-the-art Radian laser tracker series, but also calibration equipment and software for robots and machine tools. API’s optical sensors and coordinate measuring products continue to be the benchmark for metrology Automation, Precision and Innovation. API is at the heart of manufacturing organizations worldwide, ensuring product quality and performance, often through our on-site dimensional inspection, metrology and calibration services team.
Headquartered in Rockville, Maryland, API has subsidiary operations throughout the USA and in Germany, France, Brazil, China and India.
