The new equipment is a portable arm Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), with a tactile CMM probe and a laser scanning attachment.

TINLEY PARK, ILLINOIS -- With the addition of a new Romer Portable Measuring Arm, Nel Pretech cements its position as the dominant force in the ISO Certified Dimensional Inspection Industry. Romer achieved an industry first with the ability of their absolute encoders to “know” their positions at all times. This type of instrument is used in 3D digitizing, 3D modeling, point cloud inspections, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping or copy milling, and more. Equipped with a high precision flying dot laser scanner, accuracy of 20 microns can be expected. Difficult to scan materials, including shiny, colored, and mirrored surfaces are easily performed. secured the finest software packages for their new Romer Absolute Portable Arm. Basic inspections are performed using the PC-DMIS Package. An operator can measure prismatic shapes, take dimensions, print reports and generate and run repeatable part programs in a fraction of the time. The Geomagic Studio brings an immense amount of capabilities to this instrument. It represents a complete toolbox for transforming 3D scanned data into highly accurate surface, polygon and native CAD models.

The company reports that they have completed more than 10,000 dimensional inspection projects in its state-of-the-art ISO Certified laboratory. In May of 1993, Nel Pretech began providing non-contact inspection to injection molders, metal stampers, and other manufacturers.
