Optical repeatability targets from SMX Corp. ensure accuracy and consistency of repeat measurements made with a laser tracker during machine tool and parts inspection. They have an open-air corner cube with mirrored surfaces and a gold reflective coating that maintains high beam return power. This coating is applied to the front surface of the panel, eliminating potential distortion caused when a refractive beam travels through glass. The targets can be glued to the tool or part to serve as a reference point during inspection.
