Leica T-MAC Robot Automated Alignment Demonstration

Video Information

Integration of the Leica T-MAC Tracker-Machine wireless control sensor on an industrial robot with a Leica Laser Tracker, in an automatic alignment/assembly application.


The T-Mac can be mounted on moving robots, machines, or parts whose positions need to be monitored in 6DoF (degrees of freedom) space. In this case, the 3-D alignment of one part to another is accomplished with the robot, with the T-Mac/Tracker combination providing real-time positional feedback and robot guidance.


This innovative application was developed in response to the need for automation of tracking tasks where it is difficult, impossible or undesirable to have a human being holding a Leica T-product device like the T-Probe or T-Scan.
