“Year in Review” – Expanded Portable CMM Line for Hexagon

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced its new addition to the ROMER Absolute Arm portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) product line. The 77 series is designed to provide accuracy for 3-D measurement applications. The PCMM achieves nearly a 20% improvement in scanning accuracy and a 15% improvement in touch-probe measurement accuracy over the 75 Series. The new ROMER Absolute Arm is available in five sizes from 2.5 m to 4.5 m measuring volumes.

The 77 series combines its measurement advances with the technology of the ROMER Absolute Arm. The ROMER Absolute Arm can be switched on and used immediately without warm-up or referencing. Probe changes can also be made without recalibration for flexibility on the job. Acoustic and haptic operator feedback facilitates usage in harsh shop-floor environments. The standard, versatile 3,000 N magnetic base offers mounting options for all kinds of applications and part sizes.

“The 77 Series takes the accuracy performance of the ROMER Absolute Arm to a new level for dimensional control applications found in safety-critical industries as aerospace, defense, medical and more,” said Zvonimir Kotnik, Business Unit Manager for Portable Products, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “Alongside the 73 and 75 Series arms, the 77 Series has a three-level product range.”

Like the 73 and 75 Series of ROMER Absolute Arm, 77 Series arms are compatible with all Hexagon laser scanners, including the RS3 integrated scanner and the HP-L-20.8 and HP-L-8.9 external units. All ROMER Absolute Arms are available in 6- and 7-axis configurations. The 6-axis models are designed for touch-probe measurement, while the 7-axis design is suited for high-speed laser scanning.
