Hello, I want to make a point cloud with laser Hokuyo utm30lx for this work I'm doing a transformation with TF, but I do not understand how to use the broadcaster with the sensor_msgs, I need an example subscription Hokuyo sensor data for the broadcaster .

I need to get the xyz coordinates of the sensor.

I couldn't clearly understand your question! but if your mean is , how to broadcast your laser scans tf , i should say you must measure your fixed laser coordinate manually , then set it to your laser scans tf broadcaster . and set frame_id : base_link (your base tf).

for convert your laser shot to point cloud you can use of laser_geometry node .
