LT 1680 / measuring instrument

LT 1680
LT 1680

The new developed measuring instrument combines two new technologies:Laser as optical measuring method and transparent OLED as displaying method. Measuring data had to be taken in several steps and to be compared with the reference measurements in a time-consuming process. The LT 1680 capturing now more dimensional data’s and visualizes the measurements in a CAD which shows a two dimensional outline of the geometry of the measured component. The instrument offers its users the possibility of an immediate automatic comparison and evaluation of the captured outline with a reference CAD on a touch screen. The whole process is done by a computer.
