New ultra-portable laser tracker system from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence
The new Leica Absolute Tracker AT403 delivers speed and ease of measurement improvements in a highly portable form factor07 March 2017
With full IP54 certification, an operating temperature range of -15°C to 45°C and the introduction of the RapidSight aim alignment tool, the Leica Absolute Tracker AT403 is able to provide CMM capabilities in a wide range of challenging measurement environments. Portable usage is further enhanced by WiFi connectivity, providing true access point functionality. The system’s updated distance meter technology is able to make improved use of the Leica B-Probe in terms of measurement speed and usability. It also delivers measurement process speed improvements for reflector measurements and supports the newly introduced continuous measurement functionality, which allows for the measurement of moving points for the first time within this level of the Leica Absolute Tracker range.
“With this new release we’ve looked to build on the strengths of our existing laser tracker platform and deliver a new tool that really reflects the way we see our customers using our products,” said Matthias Saure, Product Manager at Hexagon. “That meant portability, robustness and usability were important concepts for us in this design – we want to give users the capability to quickly and easily get the measurements they need, wherever they need to be done. And of course we have to do that without compromising on the accuracy Hexagon products are known for, and I think with the Leica Absolute Tracker AT403 we’ve achieved exactly that,”
The Leica Absolute Tracker AT403 retains key features from its predecessors, such as the unrivalled PowerLock function, full battery operation and an ultra-large measurement volume of 320 metres (ø).
Along with Hexagon’s typical technical support and maintenance services, Leica Absolute Tracker AT403 buyers will also benefit from a newly introduced 24-month warranty. The new system is available to order worldwide from today via local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence commercial operations and dealers, with shipment commencing immediately.
