Hexagon Metrology has introduced the ROMER Absolute Arm series. The Absolute Arm is already known for its pioneering advancements, the company states. The upgraded design innovations increase the accuracy of the portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) by up to 23% compared to previous versions. With point repeatability values from 0.016 mm, the ROMER Absolute Arm 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 enables users to 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.
