Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division launched the RS-SQUARED Area Scanner for the Absolute Arm – pairing an area scanner with a portable measurement arm. For high-speed scanning of simple shapes and surfaces, the RS-SQUARED can measure parts fast.
By combining the flexibility of a portable arm with the speed of structured light scanning technology, RS-SQUARED takes up to four square ‘tiles’ of 3D point data per second, while maintaining the accuracy measurement of the touch probe, even in difficult to reach areas. RS-SQUARED does not require reference markers or use fringe projection, so the time to scan the part is reduced.
Hexagon also announced new Control Packs for the latest generation of Absolute Arm systems. Both new Control Packs will offer functionality over a single cable. The high-end Wireless Pack model will also deliver full-speed scanning performance over WiFi for all Absolute Arm scanners, including the RS6 Laser Scanner and the new RS-SQUARED Area Scanner, along with dual hot-swappable batteries for all-day power.
The RS-SQUARED Area Scanner is available to order immediately from local Hexagon representatives around the world. It is available as a complete system with a new Absolute Arm 7-Axis, and as a retrofit for any current generation Absolute Arm 7-Axis systems. All new orders of a complete Absolute Arm system will also ship with one of the Control Pack models.
