Laser Tracking

Laser tracking is a method of measuring positions with a high degree of accuracy - in the 10s of microns, very much higher than typically needed in an industrial robotics environment. This Wikipedia article gives a brief introduction to the technology.


What does Adaptive Automation offer?
We has tools to improve the speed and accuracy of integrating measured data from a laser tracker into a CAD environment.
  • Automated documentation of measurement requirement.
  • Creation of measurement scripts for use within the laser tracker software to speed up the measurement process.
  • Laser tracker measurement service
  • Single-click alignment of every component in a cell, based on measured points.

Components in the cells are aligned using a least squares method from the available measurement, aligning these single points with features such as planes and cylinders.
