OMEGA portable multi-purpose measuring arm suits 3D scanning applications such as reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, and non-contact inspection. It includes 4 models: model 2025 measuring 9 ft, model 2018 measuring 6 ft, model 2030 of 10 ft and model 2036 of 12 ft. Weighing about 12 lb, seven-axis arm includes advanced carbon fiber and aluminum construction. Other features included are repeatability, automatic color recognition, and real-time display of point clouds and point data.
Original Press Release:
New ROMER OMEGA Laser Scanning Arm
ROMER Inc, a Hexagon Metrology Company, is pleased to announce the North American introduction of the OMEGA portable measuring arm, our most economical tool for multi-purpose non-contact measurement to date. We are demonstrating OMEGA at Hexagon Booth 3600 at the WESTEC 2009 Exhibition, Los Angeles Convention Center, March 30 - April 02, 2009. The OMEGA system is ideal for 3D scanning applications such as reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, and non-contact inspection.
A complete package includes the OMEGA articulating arm, the R-Scan line laser scanning probe, and PC-DMIS Reshaper software. The entry-level, yet full featured Omega solution is specially priced at $49,999 (model 2025/9 foot size), and is also offered in three additional sizes: 2018 (6 foot, 2030 (10 foot) and 2036 (12 foot). The seven-axis arm is comprised of advanced carbon fiber and aluminum construction, which translates into a very lightweight (about 12 pounds) shop floor metrology device.
The OMEGA series is a new offering of ROMER 3D portable arms that are fast, intuitive and promote measurement without constraints. Optimized for reverse engineering, the R-Scan non-contact laser scanner offers patented infinite rotation for scanning hard to reach areas. The OMEGA system also features large capacity inspection, repeatability, automatic color recognition, and real-time display of point clouds and point data.
Included in the package is PC-DMIS Reshaper software, a comprehensive 3D point-cloud processing program for users who need to handle rapidly generated point clouds and obtain high-quality 3D meshes. The software collects measurement data "live" from the arm, and rapidly creates and edits 3D polygon mesh models, which can be exported in a variety of formats, to either bring into a CAD program for further processing or STL files to print to a rapid protoyping printer.
The Special $49,999 package includes:
o Omega 2025 (9 foot) Arm
o R-Scan Line Laser Scanner
o PC-DMIS Reshaper Software
o Laptop Computer
o Classroom Training
o Roller Case
o 15mm, 6mm and point hard probes
