So much emphasis has been placed on tracker accuracies, and the capabilities of the probes and scanners that pair with them. There is an often-overlooked component of tracker operation and measurement: Spherically Mounted Retroreflectors (SMRs).
What is 6 Degrees of Freedom, or 6 DoF for short? 6 DoF refers to the freedom of movement of a rigid body in three-dimensional space. But anyone can Google 6 DoF and get that … Read More
Over time, Laser Tracker operators naturally see an erosion in the product’s performance. Wear and tear from regular use, plus a host of environmental factors, create a slippage in accuracy over time (even on a … Read More
The paradox of modern manufacturing is that as designs of machined parts become more complex and difficult to navigate, they require more intricate and precise three-dimensional measurements. Cockpit assemblies, vacuum chambers, turbine housings and railroad … Read More
A laser tracker is a powerful tool in the metrologist’s arsenal, but only if it’s used correctly. This white paper serves as a guide for avoiding three of the most common mistakes associated with operating laser … Read More
Laser trackers have become the measuring tool of choice for large volume dimensional metrology applications within the aerospace, ship building, terrestrial transportation, and power generation industries. A laser tracker is a portable coordinate measuring system … Read More
