The TracerSI is the only laser projection system on the market that fully supports targetless, Feature-Based Alignment. This means that retroflectors are not required to perform alignment for templating. Feature-Based Alignment compares known features (holes, corners) on the object or assembly to the CAD model to perform alignment. Users can align large volume, “no touch” parts to facilitate accurate and repeatable projection schemes. Feature-Based Alignment reduces the time and effort required to set up for a laser-guided assembly project. Target-based or a hybrid target/targetless alignment capability are also supported.
