Common Laser Tracker Workflows


Aligning the Laser Tracker to Robot Systems

This document details the process of aligning the track of Robot to a Break Press.   Download the method sheet.  

Aligning Tracker to Automotive Check Fixture

This file outlines the steps for establishing a best fit (iterative) alignment to a fixture with three or more known locations.   Download the method sheet.

Alignment and Measurement to Tire Machine

This document explains how to align a tire machine's rails and transfer ring.   Download the method sheet.

Alignment Inspection of a Tire Machine

This method sheet describes one method to align, inspect, and setup a tire machine.   Download the method sheet.

Gravity as a the Clocking Axis of a Coordinate System – Measure Q/X

This file explains how to setup a coordinate system in Measure in situations where it is desirable to use a gravity vector (like a plumb bob) to “clock” the coordinate system.   Download the method sheet.

Gravity as a the Clocking Axis of a Coordinate System – Measure 10

This file explains how to setup a coordinate system in Measure 10 in situations where it is desirable to use a gravity vector (like a plumb bob) to “clock” the coordinate system.   Download the method sheet.

Gravity as Primary Vector of a Coordinate System

This document demonstrates how to create a coordinate system in situations where it is suitable to use gravity as the vector of the primary plane of a coordinate system. This type of coordinate reference frame is useful when leveling machine beds, rails, and assembly lines and useful when inspecting a part for sag due to gravity or normal wear.   Download the method sheet.

How to Level an AIDA Stamping Press

This document describes the method for leveling a stamping press.   Download the method sheet.

Inspecting Sheet Metal Check Fixture

This file details the method for aligning the Laser Tracker to sheet metal fixtures with known points with the intent of comparing the fixtures to a CAD model.   Download the method sheet.

Inspection - Best-Fit Alignment to a Tube

This document explains how to complete a best-fit alignment of the non-end intersection points of a tube in order to produce a more repeatable alignment for measuring a tube without a square-cut end.   Download the method sheet.

Laser Tracker and changes to Robot Systems

This file demonstrates the process of capturing the locations of several items in the world of a Break Press robot.   Download the method sheet.

Leveling a Part to Gravity

This file demonstrates how to adjust a part, or the base of a part or fixture so that it is level to gravity.   Download the method sheet.
