Active Target

Increase Manufacturing Efficiency

The award-winning, one-of-a-kind Active Target from Automated Precision Inc. (API) is a next generation Spherically Mounted Retroreflector (SMR). This motorised target locks on to any API laser tracker and automatically positions itself so it will never lose the beam. The Active Target allows for automated measurements on machine tools, robots, or any other movable object where a standard SMR will not work.

So How Does It Work?

The centre reflector of the Active Target works in a similar fashion to any standard SMR. The difference is the Active Target features built-in motorisation technology that automatically positions the reflector to always be facing the tracker regardless of movement.

Active Target Advantages

Since the Active Target automatically positions to stay locked on; it’s easy to measure long rails, the movements of vehicles, even the compound motion of robots. The Active Target also tracks the position of CMMs and CNC machining equipment without manual user intervention.
