Absolute Arm Compact
The world’s most accurate portable measuring arm
Ready to get started?
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.

Features & BenefitsProbing and Scanning
Specialised for ultra-high-accuracy probing while also compatible with the entry-level HP-L-8.9 Laser Scanner, concentrated multifunctionality is what the Absolute Arm Compact is all about.
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.
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.
Light-weight design, an integrated base and an innovative counterweight balance system make the Absolute Arm Compact the perfect device for measurement anywhere, even within a CNC machining centre.
The probing accuracy of the Absolute Arm 7-Axis is certified according to ISO 10360-12 as standard, with full scanning system accuracy certified according to ISO 10360-8 Annex D when supplied with an Absolute Scanner AS1 or RS5 Laser Scanner.
Every Absolute Arm is now compatible with the HxGN SFx | Asset Management 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 7-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.
