Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Unveils the Most Accurate ROMER Absolute Arm to Date

NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I., Jan. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence today announced its new, top-of-the-line addition to the ROMER Absolute Arm portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) product line. The most accurate ROMER Absolute Arm to date, 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 ROMER Absolute Arm is available in five sizes from 2.5 m to 4.5 m measuring volumes. Detailed product information and technical specifications can be found at http://hexagonmetrology.us/products/portable-measuring-arms/romer-absolute-arm. Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, formerly Hexagon Metrology, is a global metrology and manufacturing technology company.

The 77 series combines its high precision measurement advances with the proven technology of the ROMER Absolute Arm, while retaining the arm’s user-friendly nature. The ROMER Absolute Arm is the only PCMM in the industry that 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 usage in harsh shop-floor environments. The standard, versatile 3000 N magnetic base offers mounting options for all kinds of applications and part sizes. The ROMER Absolute Arm 77 Series is now available to order worldwide via local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence commercial operations and agents with shipments starting in March 2016.

“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. “Users will gain speed and precision with confidence utilizing this new PCMM line developed with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence's signature sensing, thinking, acting approach to product design. Alongside the 73 and 75 Series arms, the 77 Series gives us a three-level product range, so it is easier than ever for our customers to choose the right ROMER Absolute Arm for their specific application requirements."

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 ideal for touch-probe measurement, while the 7-axis design is well suited for high-speed laser scanning.
