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 non-contact 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, including an on-wrist display that puts control and results in the hands of the user. Choose between configurable grip shapes and sizes as well as a wide range of accessories, from probe tips and 3D optical scanners to complete measurement systems designed for specialised applications.
The modularity at the core of the Absolute Arm design concept continues with the portable arm’s range of scanners. The RS5 Laser Scanner offers established and reliable general-purpose scanning functionality. The ground-breaking RS-SQUARED Area Scanner offers a high-productivity alternative based on structured light scanning technology. The flagship Absolute Scanner AS1 is the key to premium 3D scanning and digitisation, with its unmatched accuracy, measurement speed and multi-surface automatic exposure functionality based on SHINE technology. Each can be quickly and easily mounted on the Absolute Arm 7-Axis by the user with no need for realignment, while the AS1 can even be mounted on a handheld positioner and used with an Absolute Tracker for measurement across greater volumes.
All this adds up to a far more productive and versatile arm that delivers high-accuracy measurement results more quickly and more easily than ever before.
Probing and Scanning
High-accuracy touch probing performance combined with high-end, high-productivity scanning in combination with the Absolute Scanner AS1 or RS-SQUARED Area Scanner, the Absolute Arm 7-Axis is a multifunctional measurement tool that delivers clear productivity improvements through increased usability and versatility.
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.
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.
The ergonomically designed wrist of the Absolute Arm 7-Axis features an OLED measurement display screen, interchangeable grips, exchangeable probe and scanner mountings and a selection of control buttons, making complete one-handed operational efficiency easier than ever before.
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 7-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 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, RS-SQUARED Area Scanner or RS5 Laser Scanner.
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.
