FARO® Laser Trackers are accurate, portable coordinate measuring machines that enable you to build products, optimize processes, and deliver solutions. This article contains common workflow solutions to help streamline productivity.
Aligning the Laser Tracker to Robot Systems
This document details the process of aligning the track of Robot to a Break Press.
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.
Alignment and Measurement to Tire Machine
This document explains how to align a tire machine's rails and transfer ring.
Alignment Inspection of a Tire Machine
This method sheet describes one method to align, inspect, and setup a tire machine.
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.
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.
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.

How to Level an AIDA Stamping Press
This document describes the method for leveling a stamping press.
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.
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.
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.
