Absolute Arm - 6 Axis

thumb romer-6-axis-absolute-arm

The new ROMER Absolute Arm is absolutely advanced. Drawing inspiration and resources from the entire Hexagon Metrology product family, and all ROMER arms that came before, the ROMER Absolute Arm has been redesigned to ensure the ultimate user experience. A new ergonomic wrist is the first to be designed around the complex contours of the human hand. Sensory feedback enables users to take measurements in even the most challenging shop environments.

The ROMER Absolute Arm is still the easiest and fastest to use in the industry. Intelligent Quick Change Probes require no special tools or recalibration after probe changes. Absolute encoders "know" where the arm is at all times, eliminating the need for complex homing procedures. A thermally stable dual carbon fiber tube construction does not lock up when temperatures change.

The Absolute Arm is an absolute return on investment.

 

Features

romer-absolute-arm-feature-points

  1. Patented Infinite Rotation in the principle axes allows access to difficult to reach areas, while avoiding damaging the arm against rotational hard stops.
  2. Kinematic Probe Joint, the same type used in Hexagon Metrology bridge CMMs, provides repeatable connection of probes, with no need for recalibration. Automatic probe recognition allows you to store hundreds of calibrated probe profiles for instant recall.
  3. The ergonomically designed wrist was modeled after the complex contours of the human hand. Buttons on the wrist are used to inspect parts or to interact with the software when in "mouse mode".An integrated work light and digital camera graphically document setups.
  4. Patented SpinGrips are infinitely rotating, low-friction "approved" hand hold positions for better user ergonomics. SpinGrips allow the arm to "float" in the operator's hands, reducing stress on the arm thus maximizing accuracy and repeatability while minimizing user fatigue.
  5. Absolute Encoders improve overall accuracy and eliminate all complicated "homing" procedures.
  6. Aerospace grade Carbon Fiber Tubes provide a lightweight, stiff structure that is thermally stable.
  7. Low Profile Zero-G Counterbalance balances the arm's weight for easy, operation with effortless control, even above and below the arm's centerline. Better ergonomics means lower operator fatigue and better measuring results.
  8. Integrated handle and lifting point under counterbalance allow for easy carrying.
  9. Feature Packs plug into the base and provide interchangeable and upgradeable add-on capabilities such as WiFi connection, battery power, and more.
  10. Universal thread mount base attaches to a variety of available base and stand options including magnetic bases.

Feature Pack Options for 6-Axis Absolute Arms:

  • Mobility Pack: A rechargeable battery and WiFi transmitter allows completely wireless use of the Absolute Arm.
  • "No Pack" Option: The Absolute Arm is completely functional without a feature pack, using a 110/220v power connection.

    1 The Point Repeatability Test is the reference test to determine measurement arm repeatability with ball probe. The cone is in front of the machine. Points are measured from multiple approach directions. The average point and the deviation of each point to the average center are calculated. The result is the maximum range divided by two.

    2 The Volumetric Accuracy Test is the most representative test for volume measurement accuracy. A gage block with a known and certified length is measured several times throughout the working volume. This gage block is installed in different positions and measured depending on multiple approach directions. The result is the maximum deviation of the measuring distance less the theoretical length.
