The Nikon Laser Radar provides automated, non-contact measurement capability for large-volume applications of up to a 50 meter radius. The revolutionary measuring instrument is suited for repetitive, complex, hard-to-reach, delicate and labour-intensive inspection tasks in automotive, aerospace, renewable energy and many other large scale applications.
