Carbon Composite Inspection Launched for ROMER Absolute Arm

Uses Apodius 3D technology

hexagon_logo1Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has launched its Composite Inspection System for the ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner (SI). Based on new Apodius 3D technology, this combined hardware and software application package offers advanced inspection and analysis of lightweight carbon-fibre components at an unprecedented level of speed and detail.


The system comprises HP-C-V3D Apodius Vision Sensor camera-based scanning hardware – designed to fit simply to a ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner – combined with the custom-built Apodius Explorer 3D real-time software package. Together, these parts deliver high-definition fibre orientation and geometry measurement and complete three-dimensional model creation and analysis, allowing for actual-to-target value comparison and the capacity to detect, document and classify previously difficult to define composite production errors.

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 an unmatched solution for the inspection of carbon-fibre components.

Compatible with all ROMER Absolute Arm SI models, the Composite Inspection System is available to order worldwide from today through local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence sales offices. Shipping will commence immediately.
