Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced the launch of a new take on the standard reflector target used by 3D laser tracker systems all over the world. Designed for clear productivity improvements without high costs, the Super CatEye Reflector is a laser tracker target with an ultra-wide laser acceptance angle. This innovative new approach to reflector targets can be used to minimise investment in additional expensive equipment while also making current measurement workflows more efficient.
Functional at a distance up to 18 metres from the laser tracker, the Super CatEye Reflector delivers an extremely wide laser acceptance angle of 75 degrees from vertical around a full 360 degrees field of view – this compares to a typical laser tracker reflector acceptance angle of just 30 degrees from vertical.
With this unique characteristic, users can minimise time-consuming laser tracker station changes or manual interaction with their reflector targets. They can also avoid the expensive typical alternative solution of installing multiple trackers or reflectors, or active-targets that require complexities such as separate electrical power, motors and encoders.
The Super CatEye Reflector is compatible with Hexagon’s high-end laser tracker systems, the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 and AT930. The reflectors are available to order immediately from local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence representatives around the world, and first units will ship from mid-July.
