A new approach to tube and wire measurement was announced by leading metrology and manufacturing solution specialist Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. An updated version of AICON BendingStudio software platform now allows for the integration of a ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner that can quickly determine complex tube and wire geometries using 3D laser scanning technology at almost any point in the production process.
From tube and wire inspection to manufacturing and reverse engineering applications, BendingStudio with Absolute Arm is a full-featured solution. The system will benefit from the ability to connect directly to a CNC bending machine, allowing for the simple and immediate correction of production errors.
With this new version, BendingStudio will retain all its previous capabilities, allowing users to combine use of the ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner with a complementary AICON TubeInspect. With these two measurement hardware endpoints operating on the same software platform, users will benefit from increased efficiency within a toolkit covering every need in tube and wire design and manufacturing.
BendingStudio with Absolute Arm is available immediately from Hexagon sales offices and distributors, both as a standalone software package for current ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner owners and as a full product package including both the BendingStudio software and a ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner. Current owners of BendingStudio who wish to add a highly portable measuring solution to their existing toolkit will be able to simply upgrade their existing software package alongside the purchase of a ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner.
