The program allows manufacturers to gain access to API’s benchmark RADIAN laser tracker to perform specific measurements, alignments and calibration tasks or overcome periods of bottleneck for its own portable measurement equipment. API trackers can be rented daily, weekly, monthly or for longer periods. Trackers can be supplied complete with metrology software or the customer can utilize their own measurement software license.
API can also provide its RADIAN laser tracker under a Rent-to-Own program whereby rental payments are offset against the cost of a new API tracker. This unique API rent-to-buy program is expected to be popular where a company’s equipment investment process is lengthy but the need for a laser tracker is immediate. The program allows users to get measuring while their internal equipment procurement mechanism remains ongoing.
Trackers can be rented with accessories including the v-Probe, which allows CMM style tactile measurements to be performed on large parts on the manufacturing floor, and the iScan sensor allowing the laser tracker to be used for laser scanning and point cloud creation for both reverse engineering and production part inspections.
The Laser Tracker rental program is available through API’s Metrology Services Division who also perform on-site contract inspection, measurements and alignments throughout USA, Canada and Mexico in addition to performing laser tracker accuracy verifications in the field and laser tracker calibrations at its ISO17025 certified laboratory.
