The measuring for best aligning and best slab quality becomes digitalized.

Technology

Easy operation with 3D laser tracker and intuitive software

The tailor-made HD LASr software leads you step-by-step through the measuring.

You probe all aligning-relevant objects with the light-weight reflector and the lasertracker determines their exact position in three dimensions.

HD LASr records the measuring information automatically in short time and issues digital measuring reports - clearly legible and at the same time reliable. You get immediately the information on the necessary mechanical measures for aligning the objects in the optimum position. 

Even with a large number of measurements you keep track of all the reports in a well-organized archive.
