Next Generation Laser Trackers Increase Portability and Ease of Use

Hexagon Metrology launches a new range of all-in-one high-speed laser tracker

Nov 11, 2014 -- Leading metrology solutions developer Hexagon Metrology today unveiled the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960, a walk-around coordinate measuring machine that fits in a single flight case. The latest model in the Leica Absolute Tracker range, the AT960 answers customer demand for a genuinely portable laser tracker with high-speed dynamics and six degrees of freedom (6DoF) capabilities.

With a complete range of Leica laser tracker accessories built into the device, the AT960 measures to a Leica T-Probe, Leica T-Scan or reflector straight out of the box. Hot-swap battery function and IP54 certification for use in even the toughest workshop conditions mean the AT960 really can be taken anywhere.

Also launched today is the Leica Absolute Tracker AT930 system. With all the features and functionality of the AT960 without the 6DoF compatibility, the AT930 offers a totally transportable 3D solution with unprecedented dynamic capabilities and real-time operation.

“The new AT960 and AT930 laser trackers feature the latest electronics and optical technologies. Leveraging the recent developments of PowerLock, absolute interferometry and optical miniaturization we are able to release next generation portable products based on proven features,” explains Duncan Redgewell, General Manager, Leica metrology products. “The AT960 and AT930 replace the hugely-successful AT901 and T-Cam products and complement the basic Leica Absolute Tracker AT402. We now offer the most complete and modern range of laser trackers available on the market, giving our customers the opportunity to choose the right equipment for their specific needs.”

The Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 and the Leica Absolute Tracker AT930 are available to order immediately through your local Hexagon Metrology commercial center or distribution partner. The Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 will be shown at HxGN LIVE Local at Hexagon Metrology’s Lake Forest Solution Center (Lake Forest, CA) Wednesday, November 12, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
