High-performance 6DoF laser tracker technology in an ultra-portable and easy-to-use form factor.
The Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 is a robust, all-in-one laser tracker that fits in a single flight case. Offering high-speed dynamic measurement as standard, it is a complete solution for six degrees of freedom (6DoF) probing, scanning and automated inspection as well as reflector measurement.
A new generation of portable CMM system based on proven technology, the AT960 brings together the 6DoF functionality introduced with the Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 and the portability and usability delivered by the compact Leica Absolute Tracker AT403. The result is a highly-sophisticated yet easy-to-use large-volume measurement solution weighing less than 14 kilograms.
The AT960 laser tracker can be transported easily, unpacked quickly and powered up in minutes to deliver high-performance measurement almost anywhere. Dynamic features and flexible functionality give users absolute speed, accuracy and portability.
Featuring wireless communication and a battery operation option, the integrated-technology design of the AT960 makes lengthy setup a thing of the past. The Leica Absolute Interferometer (AIFM) enables accurate high-speed measurement to a moving target while the innovative PowerLock function ensures an interrupted beam is instantly re-established without user intervention, reducing operator workload and training requirements. Intuitive touch-screen controls minimise the potential for user error, saving time, effort and money. Check and compensation architecture means basic adjustments can be made in the field, while robust design guarantees on-specification operations with minimal calibration and servicing.
When combined with the Real-Time Feature Pack and Leica T-Mac, the AT960 evolves into a laser tracker solution that meets the deterministic measurement data-delivery requirements of high-end automated installations. Built on the industry-proven EtherCAT protocol, it enables the delivery of 6DoF measurement data with accurate timestamps at an output rate of up to 1000 Hertz. Known as 7DoF measurement data, this enables real-time machine control within even highly-dynamic robotic setups.
With a measurement volume of up to 160 metres in diameter, the AT960 is compatible with Leica T-Probe, Leica T-Mac, Leica T-Scan 5 and Leica Absolute Scanner technology. This flexibility allows it to cater to a wide variety of inspection applications – from quality lab to in-line; from in the factory to in the field – ensuring users have the right tool for any measurement challenge.
