When engineering company Ingemat decided to work customers from the wind energy sector, it chose a Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 that would enable it to take measurements in large-volume applications.

Ingemat, located close to Bilbao in the north of Spain, is an automation engineering and robotics company that specialises in the general management of turnkey projects and development of customised solutions for production processes.

For its automotive customers, it manufactures complete dies and body-in-white solutions, manufacturing lines, table-top and roller hemming machines and laser-based welding solutions.

With the extension of their business activities into the aerospace and wind energy sector, the size of parts the Ingemat team manoeuvres every day increases rapidly, as do the challenges for the measurement technicians.

A major part of Ingemat’s everyday business is measuring jigs or fixtures for aerospace customers.

For these applications, the company measures across distances of roughly 7m – but as it plans to extend its business to customers from the wind energy sector, Ingemat expects to be working with larger structures in the future.

For this reason, Ingemat needed a metrology tool that works over distances exceeding 45m.

To prepare for future development, Ingemat selected the Leica Absolute Tracker AT401, a compact portable coordinate measuring system designed for large-volume applications.

This instrument emits a laser beam which accurately determines the exact position of a reflector sphere within a typical working volume of 320m.
