Hexagon Metrology’s ROMER Arm to be Featured on “Corvette Nation” TV Series

New Corvettes Get a Classic Look with Portable Measurement Technology

Oct 29, 2014 -- Hexagon Metrology, Inc. announces today its customer CRCoachworks (CRC, Lakewood, WA) will be featured using a ROMER arm this season on the TV show “Corvette Nation.” Airing on Discovery’s Velocity channel, this weekly series is dedicated to America’s sports car—the Corvette. CRC is a composite manufacturing shop specializing in Retro-vettes. Each car is handcrafted by the company and takes over 700 man hours to complete.

CRC transforms the modern and unprecedented performance of a newer Corvette into a classic American sports car using various technologies including Hexagon Metrology’s ROMER Absolute Arm 7-Axis SI series with integrated laser scanner. This portable measurement and 3D scanning solution is used to perform CAD-to-part inspections, and to accurately capture 3D features and freeform shapes for reverse engineering tasks. The ROMER arm has a natural feel, and employs Zero-G counterbalance and seventh axis rotation for the ultimate user experience during data acquisition.

“The ROMER Absolute Arm is our tool of choice,” says Ron Marsden, CRC General Manager. “It helps us in a vast array of processes from start to finish, from creating geometries to creating and comparing tooling. The ROMER arm is easy to move around the floor or from shop to shop. It is ideally designed for the job we do.”

“Corvette Nation” airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. ET on the Velocity Channel.
