API Launches Recertified Laser Tracker Business
December 3, 2019
API Services, one of North America’s largest nationwide providers of on-site metrology and Laser Tracker rental services has launched a Recertified Laser Tracker operation. API Services is a wholly owned division of Automated Precision, Inc (API) whose CEO, Kam Lau, invented the Laser Tracker. The API Radian Laser Tracker series offers the smallest lightest and most accurate trackers available.
An API Recertifed Laser Tracker allows first-time tracker users to receive the benefits of Laser Tracker measurements at a significant discount on new tracker pricing or allows for additional tracker capacity to be added by experienced laser tracker users. Recent market surveys estimate that the use of Laser Trackers by the manufacturing industry will increase by 13% per annum (CAGR) over the next 5 years.
All API Recertified Laser Trackers have been through a rigorous factory inspection process and recertified to the B89.4.19 standard at the API Services IS0 17015 certified facility. Each tracker comes standard with a 12 months full parts and labor warranty. Warranty extensions and comprehensive service contracts, which include annual tracker recalibration, can be purchased extending coverage to 2, 3 or 5 years.
Recertified Laser Trackers can be supplied with one of the popular metrology software’s such as Verisurf, Polyworks and Spatial Analyzer or customers can utilize an existing software license. Trackers are supplied with an initial measurement SMR (Spherically Mounted Retroreflector). Additional tracker accessories are available to customize the laser tracker to customer specific measurement applications.
The use of portable inspection equipment is rapidly increasing as more manufacturers take part measurement to the manufacturing floor. Laser Trackers offer the ability to perform CMM-style measurements quickly and accurately without the part logistics associated with transporting parts to a centralized quality laboratory.
