While other SMRs are constructed using a very sensitive alignment of fragile glass mirrors, API SMRs are manufactured to be much more robust without sacrificing accuracy. Considering the cost of replacing a single SMR that has been mishandled or damaged, a break resistant SMR from API will pay for itself the first time it is mishandled.
Furthermore, API's Break Resistant SMRs can be used with any existing laser tracker regardless of make, model, or age. Whether it is an ADM or interferometer based system, a Break Resistant SMR from API can improve the durability and accuracy of your measurement process.
Two types of Break Resistant SMRs are being offered: "Prismatic" (solid glass prism corner cube) and "Hollow" (hollow aluminum optic with golden reflective surfaces).
