Leica T-Mac


The Leica T-Mac (Tracker-Machine control sensor) is the 6 Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) tracking device for automated applications. Mounted to an industrial robot, and tracked by an Leica Absolute Tracker AT960, T-Mac can be used to automate large scale inspection operations that previously were done by hand. 

The T-Mac is an off-the-shelf solution that can be custom-tailored to the needs of a specific application. For example, when needed, an interface for precise tool exchange units can be included.




  • PowerLock: The laser beam moves to the user, not the other way around
  • Special housing for easy installation on machines or robots
  • Reflector nests for calibration and easy orientation
  • Mechanical interface to calibration tool
  • Interface for precise tool exchange unit
  • Measurement volume of up to 30 m
  • Wide acceptance angle: pitch ±45°, yaw ±45°, roll 360°
  • Acoustic process information feedback
  • Insensitive to environmental light
  • Point rate output of 1,000 points per second
  • Tracking speed > 1 m/s
  • 2 sigma length measurement accuracy of 60 µ in a measurement volume of 15 m
