Hexagon Metrology debuted its new ROMER Absolute Arm series. This series will be launched at the Hexagon 2012 conference June 4 – 7 in Las Vegas, NV.
The Absolute Arm is already known for its pioneering advances. The upgraded design features a 23% increase in the accuracy of the portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) compared to previous versions. With point repeatability values from 0.016 mm, this device is the most accurate portable measuring arm produced by Hexagon Metrology.
Other cutting-edge features include SmartLock technology, which securely locks the arm in its rest position using a simple switch at the base. SmartLock lets you lock the arm in any intermediate position to ease inspections in physically limited areas.
The new version also contains an easy-to-access battery pack to minimize downtime required for battery changes. Absolute encoders recognize the position of the arm at all times, effectively eliminating the need for complex homing procedures. Automatic probe recognition allows operators to change probes within seconds without the need for recalibration. Its optional integrated scanning solution is factory calibrated and certified with the arm and scanner as a complete system.
The ROMER Absolute Arm is available in seven lengths, from 1.5 m to 4.5 m.
