Letecký průmysl

Průmyslová metrologie se v průběhu let stala integrální součástí procesů v leteckém průmyslu u výrobců OEM i významných hráčů v tomto průmyslovém odvětví. Systémy Laser Tracker se díky velkému měřicímu rozsahu využívají například ke kontrole, výrobě nástrojů, slícování dílů nebo v reverzním inženýrství. Ke kontrole a skenování prizmatických součástí se využívají souřadnicové měřicí stroje (SMS) všech velikostí, jež dosahují až mikrometrové přesnosti.
