Montoire, France, 2011/10/17 - Hexagon Metrology’s manufacturing facility for ROMER branded portable measuring arms in Montoire, France, celebrates its 25th birthday this October - HexagonMetrology.com. Nordic Exchange: HEXA B
Since 1986, ROMER products have become increasingly versatile and powerful measurement systems.
Hexagon Metrology celebrates the 25th anniversary of its brand ROMER, which has its origins in the manufacturing facility in Montoire, France. Since 1986, thousands of portable measuring arms have left Montoire serving a wide range of industries with its portable high-precision coordinate measuring instrument. The ROMER arm can capture the structural features of a work piece, for use in quality control, digital representation or rapid reproduction.
Ever since its beginnings, ROMER has stood for an international market approach and constant technological leadership. Cutting-edge features such as the arm’s infinite-rotation main movement axes, a flexible, portable tube measurement solution or completely integrated and fully certified laser scanners have all contributed to ROMER arms’ success throughout most industry sectors. ROMER measuring arms are also manufactured in the USA.
ROMER became a part of Hexagon Metrology in 2004. As part of a global Research & Development network within the Hexagon Group, ROMER today offers more powerful metrology systems than ever before. The latest product generation, the ROMER Absolute Arm, comes with absolute encoders, high-performance laser scanner systems, WiFi functionality and automated probe recognition.
Many of the first ever manufactured ROMER measuring arms are still in use today: The ROMER System 6 arms with the serial numbers 4 and 5 built in 1986 now celebrate their 25th application anniversary at automotive companies in France. In the European aerospace industry, the first ROMER tube inspection systems have been used daily since they were brought into service in 1986.
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.
