Hexagon Manufacturing Leica Absolute Scanner LAS 20 8 scanning with AT960 in the backgroundClick image to enlarge

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence recently announced the launch of the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960-SR, a lower-budget addition to the AT960 range of laser trackers.

Only available as part of a bundle offer with one of Hexagon’s leading laser scanner products, the AT960-SR is designed for applications with smaller measurement volume requirements that still demand the speed and accuracy of Hexagon’s flagship laser tracker line.

Powered by Hexagon’s AIFM and mini variozoom optical technology, the AT960-SR delivers the functionality for which the AT960 range is known, and remains fully compatible with Hexagon’s  probing and scanning accessories such as the Leica T-Probe, Leica Absolute Scanner LAS and the Leica T-Scan 5, as well as standard reflectors. The AT960-SR is optimized to operate over a measuring volume of up to 10 meters in diameter for 6DoF measurement, corresponding to a measuring volume of approximately 400 cubic meters.

“This new addition to the AT960 range is all about giving our customers what they want,” says Daniel Moser, Technical Product Director at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “There’s a wide range of scanning applications out there that demand high-level accuracy but don’t need the large measuring volume capability of the existing AT960 models. With the AT960-SR we’re delivering that, and at a correspondingly lower price.”

The AT960-SR is available to order worldwide in October as part of a bundle featuring a Leica Absolute Scanner or Leica T-Scan 5 handheld laser scanner, delivering a short-range non-contact measurement solution at a highly competitive price point.
