Many industries, including automotive and aerospace, must precisely measure the three dimensional features of large objects. An increasingly popular way to do this is with a laser tracker.
Laser trackers accuracy and speed distinguish them from other portable coordinate measuring instruments. Because an operator can make rapid measurements with a minimum of advance preparation, trackers are among the most versatile of the coordinate measuring instruments. Tracker software analyzes data and presents the results in a useful form. Trackers are becoming increasingly popular, especially for large scale manufacturing, where they assist in every stage of the manufacturing process.
