New Absolute Tracker ISO certification centre opens in Prague
The well-established Hexagon service centre in Prague, Czech Republic, now offers complete ISO 17025 certification for Absolute Tracker systems from its newly accredited laboratory28 April 2020
Equipment recertification is a complex but vital service for users of all coordinate measuring systems (CMS), allowing them to ensure the continued accuracy of their data against a globally recognised and fully traceable standard. The ISO 17025 certification for laser tracker systems includes a variety of tests that challenge every capability of the device, including traceable precision probing and optical scale-bar tests, distance meter standard frequency comparisons and ultra-high-accuracy measurements using installed linear systems.
“We’re very happy to be able to offer this new service to users of Absolute Tracker systems from all over the world,” said Tomáš Podlešák, Service Manager of the Prague Tracker Service Centre. “We’ve worked very hard to meet the stringent requirements necessary to become an ISO-certified lab, and now we’re very proud to be operating one of the few facilities in the world able to deliver the ISO 17025 certification for laser trackers.”
The ISO 17025 certification is available for Hexagon’s range of laser tracker CMS equipment, including the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 with Leica Absolute Scanner LAS and LAS-XL, Leica T-Scan 5 and Leica T-Probe, as well as the Leica Absolute Tracker AT403 and Leica B-Probe and the Leica Absolute Tracker AT930.
“This new evolution of our Tracker Service Centre in Prague is just the next step in our roadmap to deliver more high-level service opportunities to our customers around the world,” said Colin Osborne, Hexagon’s Technical Service Director for Tracker Products. “As a company we’ve made it a priority to have high-level technical expertise on the ground in as many of our markets as possible instead of relying on a central hub for that expertise like many other suppliers. That philosophy is what allows us to deliver such high-quality services on a local level, and it’s what allows us to make advancements such as this impressive new development in Prague.”
Tracker recertification services in Prague are available to laser tracker customers globally through contacting any local Hexagon representative. The centre is also open for direct business for local third-party businesses in Central Europe. The accreditation for the laboratory in Prague was provided by the Czech Accreditation Institute.
