The Absolute Arm is now the world’s first portable measuring arm with an IP54 rating, protecting it during use against ingress of particles and liquids. This alongside guaranteed functionality in temperatures of up to 45 degrees Celsius makes the Absolute Arm the perfect partner for measurement in even the most challenging environmental conditions.
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.
Like Hexagon CMM and laser tracker systems, our Absolute Arm systems are now compatible with the Metrology Asset Manager app, powered by the Nexus digital reality platform. As users increasingly venture further away from base with their Absolute Arm systems, it's natural to want to know how devices are performing in the field, and Metrology Asset Manager delivers exactly that. Simple, accurate and highly reliable remote monitoring and analysis functionality, whether at a single site or distributed across locations around the world, means multiple measurement devices can all be monitored in real time through this single system to allow for better-informed decision making.
Probing and Scanning
Specialised for high-accuracy probing while also compatible with the entry-level HP-L-8.9 Laser Scanner, the Absolute Arm 6-Axis offers the multifunctionality that can lead to clear productivity improvements.
The renowned Absolute Encoders placed in every articulated joint of the Absolute Arm make it the only portable measuring arm on the market to eliminate encoder referencing and frustrating system warm-up times, boosting productivity while delivering high-end accuracy.
The world’s first portable measuring arm with an IP54 rating, and guaranteed functionality in temperatures of up to 45 degrees Celsius, the Absolute Arm is the perfect partner for measurement in even the most challenging environmental conditions.
Built on a foundation of high-tech carbon-fibre tube construction, the Absolute Arm maintains strength and thermal stability under any environmental conditions, offering reliable accuracy whatever the environment.
Intuitively located infinite-rotation low-friction grips have been designed to maximise accuracy by minimising user fatigue and making every movement light and easy to handle – together with a sophisticated counterbalance system, the Absolute Arm is the most agile arm on the market.
Stow and lock in place the Absolute Arm between measurements with the HomeDock and SmartLock functions, ensuring that scanners and probes remain undamaged and factory-accurate.
In even the harshest industrial environments, communicating with the Absolute Arm in a way that keeps the measurement process running at full speed and efficiency has never been more simple, through our range of visual, acoustic and haptic feedback functions.
Even the largest Absolute Arm 6-Axis systems weigh only 10.5 kilograms, making setup and repositioning a quick and easy process, while the functionally designed and shock-resistant carry case keeps everything secure during transport.
The probing accuracy of the Absolute Arm 6-Axis is certified according to ISO 10360-12 as standard.
Every Absolute Arm is now compatible with the Metrology Asset Manager solution, allowing users to monitor arm health and performance in real time from anywhere in the world.
Built upon years of portable measuring arm technology, the Absolute Arm 6-Axis is the latest in a long line of market leading articulated measuring arms, from the ROMER Arm to the ROMER Absolute Arm and now beyond.
