Portable Measuring ArmThe Absolute Arm range from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence AB is a portable measuring arm for metrology users, featuring a ground-up redesign.

A modular wrist design allows both the RS5 laser scanner and the pistol grip to be completely removed, facilitating easy probing in tight spaces. When reattached for laser scanning applications, a variety of grip sizes are available to ensure a perfect fit for every user. The new wrist also now features a display screen that allows for measurement result oversight, profile switching, and calibration right at the point of measurement, reducing time spent switching attention between the arm and its control computer.

Proprietary Absolute Encoders eliminate referencing, warmup times, and diagnostic reporting. Features include low-friction rotating grips and a unique counterweight system that facilitate easy movement and measurement. It can also measure at full speed without a reduction in accuracy.
