Hexagon Metrology Releases New Generation of ROMER Absolute Arm

Hexagon Metrology announced the next generation of the ROMER Absolute Arm. The enhanced portable measuring arm features optimized ergonomics, a new wrist design, and greater stability. The portable CMM provides tactile and non-contact dimensional measurements in the aerospace, automotive, military, forming, tube bending and casting industries for applications requiring inspection, on-machine measurement, fixture and jig set-ups, and reverse engineering.

The 6-axis portable measuring arm introduces a new wrist designed around the contours of the human hand. The new wrist on the 7-axis Absolute Arm has a more natural feel with rotation centered around the system’s probe, the company says. Both systems feature a lockable, Zero-G counterbalance, which improves arm movement, protects it from hard falls, and enables single-handed operation. In addition to upgraded ergonomic features, the 6-axis wrist includes a built-in work light and digital camera.

Haptic feedback vibrates the wrist and warns the user of possible harmful conditions, making it ideal for noisy shop-floor environments. The arm also features a redesigned tube inspection configuration for quick inspections and reverse engineering of bend paths. The 7-axis arm is designed to accept an integrated or external high-performance laser scanner. It may also be purchased without the scanner and used as a hard probing system. Both arms do not require recalibration after a probe or scanner change.
