Laser Tracker Services
What is a Laser Tracker?
The laser tracker is a portable measurement system that relies on a laser beam to accurately measure and inspect in a spherical (360°) volume of up to 200 feet. The versatility and capability of the laser tracker accompanied with our alignment experience allows us to measure and inspect any object of interest: any part large or small, any apparatus moving or stationary, machinery installation and removal.
The laser tracker is the new benchmark for all general industry precision applications, from aerospace and automotive technologies to heavy industrial machinery alignment and everything in-between, the laser tracker is unmatched in reliability and repeatable accuracy. Schaeffer Precision Alignment, Inc. has chosen to utilize two variations of the laser tracker, each one bringing its own individual advantages. Whether we’re using a Leica Laser Tracker or an API Tracker 3 we have developed unique alignment processes and applications using both. Our focus on precision and efficiency is evident throughout our methodologies which are often custom engineered to meet the specific needs of each client. In today’s technology-dominated world, engineering prowess and imagination seem to be the only limits.
Rather than play catch up to the needs of our customers we have been active in implementing laser tracker technology with our proven experience in the field of optical alignment; together these two methodologies allow SPA to be at the forefront of dimensional metrology. SPA has designed and put into practice cutting edge and innovative process for Hitachi, General Electric, MD Anderson’s Proton Therapy Center, Lockheed Martin, Bell Helicopter, Nucor, and General Motors.
Whether your alignment needs involve a heavy industrial setting, process engineering, or a lab clean room our technology and experience are suited to yield successful results. A simple yet thorough analysis of the proposed job will provide SPA with the knowledge to best chose the primary method of inspection, either the Leica or the API. Years of operating experience and the ability to integrate the laser tracker into dimensional measurement provide our clients with confidence in our services and abilities.
Send us a note on what alignment issues or upcoming projects you are currently facing and we’ll let you know how our precision alignment team can be of assistance to you.
Advantages to Using Schaeffer Precision Alignment, Inc. Laser Tracker Technologies.
Repeatable Accuracy of 0.001″
By utilizing laser tracker technology we eliminate human error in measurement data; we are able to achieve consistent accuracy and precision, and numerical repeatability. Achieving these alignment objectives improves operating efficiency and productivity, reduces maintenance and downtime, and lowers manufacturing costs.
Emergency Alignment Services Available
SPA is available 24 hours a day to respond to emergency outages. In response to these emergencies we are able to mobilize our resources to meet your immediate objectives to be operational as soon as possible. Our rates continue to remain competitive whether the work occurs during an emergency outage or regularly scheduled maintenance; your alignment issues will always be handled with the utmost professionalism and efficiency at SPA.
Onsite Custom Reports and Analysis
Our experienced tracker technicians have the onsite capability to produce measurement data required for a precision analysis based upon exact job specifications. You will have the opportunity to work one on one with a technician (if necessary) to evaluate the inspection process and results. This means that when our technicians leave the jobsite, you will have had invaluable input and access to all onsite data available… no waiting for reports and measurement data. These factors should directly increase your efficiency to make decisions and become operational as soon as possible.
