Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced its new laser scanning technology is available for the portable ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner (SI) series. The RS4 scanner offers completely new optics and electronics, delivering a performance leap with a scan rate nearly 60 percent faster than the previous model. The fully integrated scanner is optimized for measuring objects with surfaces such as carbon fiber or machined steel. The ROMER Absolute Arm SI with the RS4 scanner is suited for point-cloud inspection, product benchmarking, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, virtual assembly and CNC milling. The solution provides tactile and non-contact dimensional measurements for applications in aerospace, automotive, power generation, medical, heavy equipment, defense, consumer products, and more. Product information and a video can be found here.
The new RS4 scanner introduces an ultra-wide laser line nearly double the width of its predecessor, which translates to larger surface coverage and faster data collection. With a higher point resolution, ROMER users can obtain greater point cloud detail in significantly less time during a scanning session. The newly designed profile of the RS4 also allows users to scan more deeply into difficult-to-reach cavities than ever before, with no reduction in accuracy performance. Users of the portable measuring arm can switch between tactile probe measurements and laser scanning to acquire 3D point data from a wide variety of surface types.
The ROMER Absolute Arm SI featuring the new RS4 scanner is now available to order worldwide via local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence sales offices and dealers. The new laser scanner is available as a retro-fit product for existing ROMER Absolute Arm SI owners looking to upgrade their scanning performance.
