ROMER Absolute Arm 77 Series
North Kingstown, Rhode Island – Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has added the ROMER Absolute Arm 77 Series to its portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) product line. The 77 Series is designed to provide absolute accuracy for high-end 3D measurement applications. The advanced PCMM achieves nearly a 20% improvement in scanning accuracy and a 15% improvement in touch-probe measurement accuracy over the popular 75 Series. The new series is available in five sizes from 2.5m to 4.5m measuring volumes.
The ROMER Absolute Arm PCMM can be switched on and used immediately without warm-up or referencing. Probe changes can also be made without recalibration to maximize flexibility on the job. Acoustic and haptic operator feedback facilitate use in harsh, shop floor environments. The standard 3,000N magnetic base offers mounting options for many applications and part sizes.
77 Series arms – compatible with Hexagon laser scanners including the RS3 integrated scanner and the HP-L-20.8 and HP-L-8.9 external units – are available in 6- and 7-axis configurations. The 6-axis models are for touch-probe measurement, while the 7-axis design is suited for high-speed laser scanning.
The 77 Series is now available to order worldwide via local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence commercial operations and agents, with shipments starting in March 2016.
