PLX’s Orthogonal Laser Metrology Module (O-LAMM) is a high precision, high repeatability laser metrology solution in a compact and robust system. Based on a PLX’s precision beam steering technology, and PLX’s core Monolithic Optical Structure Technology™ (M.O.S.T) PLX’s O-LAMM system uses cooperative targets placed on the robotic end-effector. It scans a laser line across the field of view, locating multiple targets. The scan provides X,Y location of the targets. A second O-LAMM capture of Z location through triangulation. PLX’s O-LAMM provides the vital Realtime information required for closing the loop in Adaptive manufacturing and underpinning industry 4.0.
With their exceptional stability, PLX’s boresighting systems have been repeatedly proven in the field. This paper will expand upon the Monolithic Optical Structure Technology™ (M.O.S.T.) solution with case studies of Monolithic Optical Structure Technology™ (M.O.S.T.) designs and results for specific applications, such as laser delay line systems, boresighting, and telescope alignment systems.
Precision optical alignment capability across a range from the UV to the far-IR and a lighterweight design have long given hollow retroreflectors an advantage over their solid cousins (retroreflector prisms) in boresighting, laser tracking, rangefinding, diverse laboratory applications and even space-based spectrometers.
