Laser tracking - applications

A wide range of industries rely on Laser Tracking services for tasks such as alignment, part inspection, tool building, manufacturing, assembly integration and reverse engineering.

Laser Tracking is used to measure turbine shafts, rotor diameter, rotor rotation plans, etc. in the power generation industry.

Laser Tracking is used to align welding jigs, measure vehicle frames and openings, confirm opening tolerances, CAD to Part analysis, surface modelling, etc. in the manufacturing industry.

Laser Tracking can also be utilized in the Pulp & Paper industry, aerospace industry, and shaft alignment industry.

Some applications of Laser Tracking:

Minimizing Relationships: Ensure optimal fit-ups before shipping the equipment to be installed on site.

Reverse Engineering:
Copy existing components with extremely high accuracy for fabricated replacements and duplicates.

CAD-Based Inspection:
Compare as-built deviations from nominal CAD drawings.

Machine Calibration:
To achieve and maintain optimal machine performances.

Tool Building & Setup:
Ensure complete accuracy of tooling.

Increase machine performance and reduce downtime caused from misalignment.

Roll Alignment:
Field equipment shafts and roller systems can be precisely aligned.

Large Part Inspection (Field Plant Equipment Inspection):
Field plant equipment can be inspected against data using CAD models or traditional production drawings before the client accepts the equipment or there is a need to make design changes due to measured differences before the equipment is installed in the field.

Surface Profiling:
Because of the high accuracy of the laser tracker, surface profiles can be measured with very high accuracies.

Highly sophisticated Optimized Pipe Fitting:
Intelligent mathematical simulations used to define the best-fit optimization of cutting and fitting pipe legs.
