Original Press Release:

Exact Metrology Presents The RS-SQUARED Area Scanner

Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology service provider, now offers the RS-SQUARED area scanner. Manufactured by Hexagon Metrology and re-sold by Exact Metrology, this 3D scanner is compatible with all current generation Absolute Arm 7-axis systems. The RS-SQUARED allows users to perform high-speed scans of simple shapes and surfaces. It is best suited to the scanning of large parts with lower detail requirements, such as automotive parts.

The Absolute Arm 7-axis system delivers tactile probing and laser scanning in a uniquely ergonomic package. It is the best choice for high-end portable measurement applications. The articulating arm offers unparalleled ease of movement and ease of measurement. 

RS-SQUARED is a white light scanner that uses the Absolute Arm system to position large square ‘tiles’ of 3D scan data. This removes the need for time-consuming application of reference markers or spray, or complex mechanical processes such as fringe projection that requires a stable environment. Up to 4 data tiles are captured every second, which combined with minimal set-up time, creates a scanning system capable of generating point cloud data in very little time. As with other Absolute Arm scanners, the RS-SQUARED can be easily removed and remounted without needing time-consuming recalibration processes due to an innovative repeatable mounting system.

Additional features include an extra-large scan ‘tile’ measuring 300 by 300 millimeters, providing a fast scanning solution by permitting coverage of a larger area. Furthermore, the RS-SQUARED area scanner is so fast that a surface that would usually take one hour to scan, can now be digitalized in 10 minutes. The retained touch probe functionality of the Absolute Arm ensures that high-detail geometric features can be captured at any time by removing the scanner from the arm and connecting it to a probe. Data feedback and settings adjustment at the point of measurement is built into the Absolute Arm 7-axis through its OLED on-wrist display, and the RS-SQUARED is integrated within this concept perfectly with scanner profiles selectable without putting down the scanner. The full scanning system accuracy of the RS-SQUARED area scanner and Absolute Arm 7-axis system is certified according to ISO 10360-8 Annex D.

The RS-SQUARED area scanner represents a new direction for portable measuring arm technology, embracing the need for high-productivity by incorporating advanced white light scanning technology. Together with the Absolute Arm 7-axis, it offers the ultimate all-around portable measurement solution for medium-to-large sized components.

Exact Metrology is an ISO AS9100 Certified along with being FFL and ITAR Registered.
