After a longer system rental abroad, we now have another Leica Lasertracker AT960 for service and rental business. The system also includes a T-Scan 5 handheld scanner.
Both systems have recently been tested, supplied with the latest firmware versions and the possible user calibrations have been carried out in our own measuring room!
A pre-configured scanning laptop is provided to operate the laser tracker in conjunction with the T-Scan 5 to ensure rapid deployment.
The laser tracker comes with a mobile carbon tripod recommended by the manufacturer, which was specially developed for the AT960 (according to the manufacturer, lighter tripods may cause vibrations). If you need a mobile tripod, you should use this one (although the operation with a mobile Faro tripod in the measuring room did not cause any problems).
The T-Scan 5 is a 6DOF line scanner "Leica T-SCAN 5", which can only be operated in conjunction with a "dependent" laser tracker, i.e. currently Leica AT901 or Leica AT960. In conjunction with the laser tracker system, the "T-Scan" enables area-based point recording by the line scanner at a measurement rate of approx. 210 kHz within the defined working range (max. 10 m to the LT) of the laser tracker. The scan distance is 150 mm ± 50 mm, whereby a scan width of max. 100 mm can be achieved. The T-Scan is distributed by Hexagon and was originally developed by Steinbichler (now Zeiss). Usually the scanner is hand-guided by the user, but it can also be automated by e.g. robots in "measuring cells".
