Portable arm enhances user experience with new wrist design and other ergonomic features

North Kingstown, RI – Hexagon Metrology today announced the next generation of the ROMER Absolute Arm. The enhanced portable measuring arm features optimized ergonomics, a new wrist design, and greater stability to create a better user experience while further reducing operator fatigue. The portable CMM provides tactile and non-contact dimensional measurements in the aerospace, automotive, military, forming, tube bending and casting industries for applications requiring inspection, on-machine measurement, fixture and jig set-ups, and reverse engineering. Hexagon Metrology’s ROMER Absolute Arm is available immediately worldwide. Detailed product information and technical specifications can be found at www.HexMet.us/ROMER.

The 6-axis portable measuring arm introduces a new wrist designed around the complex contours of the human hand. The new wrist on the 7-axis Absolute Arm has a more natural feel with rotation centered around the system’s probe. Both systems feature a lockable, Zero-G counterbalance which improves arm movement, protects it from hard falls, and enables single-handed operation. In addition to upgraded ergonomic features, the 6-axis wrist includes a built-in work light and digital camera. Haptic feedback vibrates the wrist and warns the user of possible harmful conditions, making it ideal for noisy shop-floor environments. The arm also features a redesigned tube inspection configuration for quick inspections and reverse engineering of bend paths. The 7-axis arm is designed to accept an integrated or external, high performance laser scanner at any time. It may also be purchased without the scanner and used as a hard probing system. Both arms do not require recalibration after a probe or scanner change.

“With this next iteration of the ROMER Absolute Arm, we have created a versatile and mobile measurement tool that combines a state-of-the-art user experience with our mature and industry-proven solutions”, said Eric Hollenbeck, product manager for Hexagon Metrology. “The arm’s optimized ergonomics, thermally stable construction, reliable encoders and plug-and-play probes deliver a new level of performance, reliability and efficiency in the portable CMM marketplace.”

All ROMER measuring arms are available with PC-DMIS Touch Portable, a revolutionary measurement software that utilizes high-resolution Multi-Touch display technology on a tablet PC. The PC-DMIS Touch interface is particularly well suited to ROMER portable arm users and further complements their experience.
