Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced its new laser scanning technology is available for the portable ROMER Absolute Arm with Integrated Scanner (SI) series.
The RS4 scanner has new optics and electronics for a scan rate nearly 60% faster than the previous model. The integrated scanner measures objects with challenging surfaces such as carbon fiber or machined steel.
The complete scanning system delivers verifiable and traceable accuracy. 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. It provides tactile and non-contact dimensional measurements for applications in aerospace, automotive, power generation, medical, heavy equipment, defense, consumer products, and more.
The RS4 scanner has 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 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, with no reduction in accuracy.
Users of the portable measuring arm can switch seamlessly between tactile probe measurements and laser scanning to acquire 3D point data from a variety of surfaces. As with every ROMER Absolute Arm model, scanner warm-up and time-consuming calibrations are not required, reducing set-up time.
The new laser scanner is available as a retro-fit product for existing ROMER Absolute Arm SI owners looking to upgrade their scanning performance.
