ROMER Absolute Arm

A first in the world of portable measuring arms: The ROMER Absolute Arm features absolute encoders and is therefore the first measuring arm which does not require referencing before measurement. When the arm is turned on, it's ready to go.

Quality control, inspection, on-machine verification, reverse engineering, virtual assembly or 3D modelling. Wherever these needs arise, you will find the ROMER Absolute Arm. Much more than just a metrology tool, its value lies in its versatility. Portability, stability, light weight and high-performance laser scanners make the ROMER Absolute Arm an all-purpose 3D measurement, analysis and digitising tool that can be used by anyone, anywhere and with minimum training.

Unlike many metrology devices, the ROMER Absolute Arm does not require warm-up time or initialization, thanks to a stable carbon fiber structure and industry leading Absolute encoders. Simply take the measuring arm to the part, switch it on and start measuring.

All models of the ROMER Absolute Arm are available in three levels of accuracy, allowing you to select the right measuring arm for your application requirements and budget. The 73 Series and 75 Series arms offer excellent price/performance ratios for everyday metrology operations, while the 77 Series - the most accurate ROMER Absolute Arm ever produced - is ideal for specialist or high-end measurement applications.

Increasing productivity across all industries.

ROMER Absolute Arm with External Scanner

The ROMER Absolute Arm with external scanner is designed for the high performance laser scanner HP-L-20.8 from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence

The ROMER Absolute Arm with external scanner is the high-end laser scanning platform designed for the HP-L-20.8 laser scanner from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. With HP-L-20.8, the ROMER Absolute Arm offers first-class performance on the most complex surface types. Automatic laser control means that multiple surface colours can be scanned in a single pass. Thanks to the HP-L-20.8's unique flying dot technology, the scan width and point density are entirely variable, allowing the user to guarantee maximum scan detail where it's needed most.

All models of the ROMER Absolute Arm are available in three levels of accuracy, allowing you to select the right measuring arm for your application requirements and budget. The 73 Series and 75 Series arms offer excellent price/performance ratios for everyday metrology operations, while the 77 Series - the most accurate ROMER Absolute Arm ever produced - is ideal for specialist or high-end measurement applications.

Tube Inspection System

Available as a turnkey hardware and software package, or as an upgrade to existing portable measuring arm units, the system uses the powerful ROMER Absolute Arm portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) alongside specially designed non-contact tube probes and the state-of-the-art TubeShaper software to accelerate the measurement and inspection process, with the absolute minimum of intervention.

Hexagon Metrology's Tube Inspection System is a total solution for all measurement needs associated with tube, pipe and wire production:

  • Tube production
  • Tube and pipe inspection
  • Reverse engineering of tubes and tube assemblies
  • Tube gauging

The easy-to-handle ROMER Absolute Arm uses non-contact tube probes, available in six different sizes, to measure tube length and bend angles as XYZ, LRA or YBC values, while standard touch probes ensure that full tube assemblies - including any welded fixtures like brackets or hangers - can be measured.

The state-of-the-art TubeShaper measurement software has been designed specifically for tube inspection with the ROMER Absolute Arm, and represents a totally new beginning in software use in this sector. Using a completely original interface, TubeShaper has been designed with some of the world's leading tube producers to create a product that brings you valuable measurement and process information as simply and quickly as possible.

CAD models of tubes and tube assemblies can be imported directly, while interfaces to CNC tube bending machines ensure real-time correctional data is transmitted directly to the bending machine itself. Measurement plans can be created offline prior to measurement, or even automatically during first-part inspection. These routines can be recalled and run at any time, meaning that batch measurement is both fast and easy. All measurement data can also be exported in IGES file format for reverse engineering applications, without the need to manage complex point cloud data. Tube measurement has never been so complete.

Composite Inspection System

The first ever system dedicated to composite part applications, the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Composite Inspection System is set to revolutionise portable carbon-fibre part inspection and analysis. The system comprises HP-C-V3D Apodius Vision Sensor hardware - designed to fit simply to a ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner - together with the custom-built Apodius Explorer 3D software package.

The three-dimensional scanning capabilities of the camera-based HP-C-V3D Apodius Vision Sensor allow for detailed surface texture mapping and part geometry acquisition. Using this data, the sensor can deliver a three-dimensional fibre orientation measurement for comparison with simulation or design data in order to detect, document and classify previously difficult to define production errors.

Apodius Explorer 3D is a real-time software solution custom-built for carbon-fibre surface analysis that supports image processing, output handling and automatic report generation. The measurement process can be visualised in real time within the programme, which can then export fully digitised three-dimensional models based on real-world measurement data. This functionality allows for actual-to-target value comparison through a variety of output modes, including colour-coded simultaneous model and measurement data display.

Combined with the ROMER Absolute Arm SI, which acts as a global reference system for the data collected by the sensor, the Composite Inspection System represents a high-definition solution for assessing carbon-fibre components that is unmatched on the metrology market.
