Speed & Precision

The Leica Absolute Tracker replaced an expensive and cumbersome model that was required to check part alignment and fit. Moreover, these models were unique to each style and were expensive to manufacture and store. They took a good deal of time to set up and align. The Leica tracker eliminated all that and allowed for precise measurements and comparison to a mock-up of the final assembly.
