The ROMER Absolute Arm is now up to 23% more accurate compared to the previous versions. With point repeatability values from 0.016 mm, the ROMER Absolute Arm is the most accurate portable measuring arm that Hexagon Metrology has ever produced. It is available in seven different lengths, from 1.5 m to 4.5 m. “Due to design improvements, the new revision enables especially the longer arm types to reach significantly higher accuracies than before” says Pirmin Bitzi, Product Manager for Portable Measuring Arms.
With the new ROMER Absolute Arm, Hexagon Metrology is also introducing SmartLock. This locking mechanism safely locks the arm in its rest position for added security. In addition, users can lock the arm in any intermediate position for measuring in tight spaces.
Hexagon Metrology is also releasing a new specific ROMER Absolute Arm variant for tube inspection applications. These ROMER tube inspection arms feature a measurement volume of 2.5 or 3.0 m, a special gas shock and a tube measurement stand to make tube and hose measurement as easy as possible.
The new ROMER Absolute Arm is available immediately and Hexagon Metrology will be presenting the new product version at the CONTROL show in Stuttgart, Germany from May 8th to 11th, 2012 (hall 5, booth 5302).
ROMER is the originator of the portable measuring arm (first created in 1986 in Montoire, France). The technological advance, the know-how, the demand for constant quality in the manufacture of the arms, the international presence are the main strengths of ROMER. Other products from ROMER include scanning probes for reverse engineering, non contact probes for tube inspection and milling of raw materials.
