Stability of Tripods
The impact of tripods on the accuracy of measuring results is often underestimated. The
degree of accuracy and precision can only be achieved with a combination of high-quality
tripods and high-precision instruments.
Wood or Aluminium?
The most precise measuring results can be reached by using a wooden tripod. In com-
parison to aluminium tripods, wooden tripods feature a better damping behaviour and are
less affected by temperature changes.
For heavy-duty wooden tripods, Nedo uses only ash, a particularly hard-wearing wood
with excellent material properties.
Geodesists prefer the use of wooden tripods because of the superior material properties,
whereas aluminium tripods are mostly used on construction sites as they are light in
weight and extremely hard-wearing.
