Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Laser Tracker?

Brunson Instrument Company has been helping the world measure for more than 90 years, and we continue to develop equipment that makes industrial measurement easier, more effective and precise.

Not everyone is getting the most out of their laser tracker. Consider these target holders, each designed to address specific precision targeting challenges and allow you to get the next shot faster and more efficiently:

This video shows the 1.5 inch THSC self-centering adapter. Magnetic feet secure the adapter to any ferrous part. This versatile target holder is able to center itself on hole sizes 0.100" to 0.625" (2.5 mm to 16 mm), doing the work of several pin nests. No wonder it’s one of Brunson’s most appreciated and adept target holders.


The 0.5 inch SMR handle removes the frustration of accidentally blocking the tracker’s beam with your hands or dropping a small SMR. As the video shows, this tool from the Brunson target holder kit makes it simple to take measurements and maintain control of the 0.5 inch SMR.

The bar point (BP-1) and the bar extension tool (BXT-10) allow you to measure blocked targets. It works with 6 mm pin nest diameters (¼ inch for English kit) and comes with a hard point adapter standard in the Brunson target holder kit. This video shows the simple steps for assembling the tool and taking your measurements. 

Get the most out of your SMRs with specialized Brunson Target Holders.
