Introduction to Laser Trackers

Provided by: ToolingU

A laser tracker is a type of portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) that is used to measure large-scale workpiece features and record their geometry. Laser trackers gather measurements by sending a laser beam to a retroreflective target and can be used in most environments on the production floor. Additionally, operators use handheld probes to measure out-of-sight areas and record 6DoF measurements. Laser trackers are used for many applications in manufacturing, including inspection, GD&T analysis, and reverse engineering processes. After taking this class, users will be able to describe laser trackers and how they function.
