How often should you field test your laser trackers?

Here’s what ISO recommends:

ISO Guidelines for Frequency of Interim Field-Testing

Excerpt from the new ISO 10360-10:2021 release:

  • Some users with high-value and/or safety-critical workpieces may elect to perform daily tests, while other users will possibly test weekly or monthly.
  • The frequency of interim testing is a matter of economics and necessity, i.e. the time period between interim tests should be chosen in a manner that meets the needs of the measurement system user while not compromising the integrity of the measurement tasks performed.
  • The frequency of testing is also strongly affected by balancing the cost of interim testing against the consequences of accepting a bad workpiece or rejecting a good one.
  • A laser tracker that is in a stable environment with a single user will typically need interim testing less often than one that is frequently transported, used by multiple operators, or in a harsh environment.
  • It may be useful to consider the interim testing interval as a percentage of total laser tracker operating hours.
  • Interim testing should be conducted after any sort of significant event such as the laser tracker being subject to excessive vibrations or potential damage.
