As of July 2013, Spherically Mounted Retroreflector (SMR) nests and tooling used with the Laser Tracker come with calibration certificates to confirm that the critical dimensions of nests and tooling are within FARO® specified tolerances. Critical dimensions include all mechanical dimensions on a single piece of metal that has been precision machined. These critical dimensions do not change or deviate with storage or temperature changes. With heavy use or accidental damage, such as falling on a hard object, critical dimensions can change.
If your quality procedures require periodic recertification of laser tracker target tooling, you can send them to any laboratory that satisfies your accuracy requirements to get them re-certified.
Prior to July 2013, SMR nests and tooling did not have calibration certificates, nor did they have unique identifying serial numbers.
