Technorazzi: Introduction to Laser Trackers

Many industries must precisely measure the three-dimensional features of large objects. An increasingly popular way to do this is with a laser tracker, which measures 3-D coordinates by tracking a laser beam to a retroreflective target held in contact with the object of interest.

 

Laser trackers replace conventional tools such as tape measures, piano wire, plumb bobs, and even theodolites—they are a more accurate and reliable tool that allow you to streamline your processes and gain confidence in your measurement results.
