HEXAGON Absolute Arm 7-Axis
The All-in-One Solution for Portable 3D Measurement
The flagship of the Absolute Arm range, the Absolute Arm 7-Axis delivers tactile probing and laser scanning in a uniquely ergonomic package.It’s the clear choice for high-end portable measurement applications. With usability central to its design, this is an articulating measuring arm that can’t be beaten when it comes to ease of movement and ease of measurement.
Built-in versatility comes in the form of a uniquely modular wrist design that features configurable grip shapes and sizes, an on-wrist display that puts control and results in the hands of the user, and a wide range of accessories, from probe tips to laser scanners to complete measurement systems designed for specialised applications. The flagship RS5 Laser Scanner is the key to high-end 3D scanning and digitisation, and can be quickly mounted on the Absolute Arm 7-Axis with no need for recalibration.
All this adds up to a far more productive arm that delivers high-accuracy measurement results more quickly and more easily than ever before.
HEXAGON Absolute Arm 6-Axis
The Portable Measuring Arm Optimised for Probing
A specialised touch measurement tool that also boasts the option for entry-level 3D scanning – the Absolute Arm 6-Axis is one of a kind. Based on patented technology with Absolute Encoders located at every articulation point and designed with ease-of-movement and usage as a focus, this is a portable measuring arm like no other.
WiFi and battery options ensure absolute portability while almost 100 probe tip accessories make finding the right tool for any specific touch probe or infrared tube probe application simple. An established repeatable kinematic probe mounting allows for hot-swapping of probe tips with no recalibration, and there’s no need to worry about warm-up or referencing on set-up or repositioning – these are advanced technology solutions that deliver increased productivity and make portable measurement easier than ever.
HEXAGON Absolute Arm Compact
The World’s Most Accurate Portable Measuring Arm
The Absolute Arm Compact is the ultimate solution for ultra-high-accuracy touch probe measurement of small-to-medium sized parts. Fitting easily on a workshop table or under a CNC machine, the Absolute Arm Compact is the height of portability and usability. It boasts the same definitive features as the flagship Absolute Arm, from Absolute Encoders in every articulation joint that eliminate warm-up and referencing to WiFi and battery operation options that allow easy repositioning and no messy cables across the workshop floor.
Built on an integrated base and innovative counterweight balance system, the Absolute Arm Compact is ready to go right out of the box – no warm-up, no waiting, no need to fix it to a work surface – just place it where you need it and start measuring. For quality control that demands fast and extremely accurate measurement, there is simply no better portable measuring arm on the market.
HEXAGON RS5 Laser Scanner
Effortless Productivity Through Advanced 3D Laser Scanning
The RS5 Laser Scanner is a removable 3D laser scanner designed for use with the Absolute Arm 7-Axis that delivers high-speed 3D scanning for surfaces and features whatever the finish or material. With its wide and horizontally-oriented laser scan line and fully-automatic exposure settings, the RS5 Laser Scanner makes non-contact 3D digitisation faster, easier and more accurate than ever.
The scanner can be easily removed from the Absolute Arm, to allow easier and safer access to touch probing functionality in hard-to-reach areas. It can be remounted with no need for recalibration – thanks to its completely repeatable mounting, you just clip it back in place and continue 3D scanning immediately. And with no trick settings that limit speed and scan-line width in order to deliver peak accuracy, the RS5 Laser Scanner delivers all the performance all of the time – maximum frame rate at maximum laser width.
The RS5 Laser Scanner is the pinnacle of 3D scanner technology, and in combination with the Absolute Arm 7-Axis delivers the ultimate all-round portable measurement solution for small-to-medium components.
