The ART IndyCar laser system consists of a class IIIA laser with special optics for focus and laser line generation. Alignments are performed using a precision 3 axis adjustment stage with sensitivity of 7 arc sec per axis. An electronic photo detector probe using a precision linear slide is used for laser beam detection. The linear slide is manually driven by a micrometer. With this combination, the laser system has the ability to generate surface topography with an accuracy of +/- 2 thousandth’s of an inch.
With the help of the motorsports community, the ART IndyCar laser system has now been configured for mass production and will be presented to the industry as MicroTransit. Additionally, it can be used in the motorsports field for setup pads, scales, surface plates, etc.
