NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI, June 27, 2014 – Hexagon Metrology announced a new generation of external laser scanner for use with the new ROMER Absolute Arm. The Hexagon Probe Laser 20.8 (HP-L-20.8) replaces the successful CMS108 laser scanner, offering improved performance even on complex surfaces and work pieces made of the most challenging shiny materials such as machined, cast, stamped or forged metals, plastics, carbon fiber and many more. Hexagon Metrology will demonstrate the HP-L-20.8 in Booth 5202 at IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show) 2014, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL from September 8-13, 2014.
By combining the HP-L-20.8 laser scanner and the new generation of ROMER Absolute Arms, launched in March 2014, Hexagon Metrology offers its customers a first-class portable coordinate measuring system with fully-certified scanning system accuracy. The unique adjustable scanning width of the HP-L-20.8, with a line length of up to 230 mm and a scan rate of up to 150,000 points per second for high-speed 3D point cloud capturing, means surfaces can be captured more rapidly than ever before – no matter what the material. The HP-L-20.8 is the first laser scanner for the ROMER Absolute Arm to be certified to the new ISO 10360-8 standard.
“With the new external laser scanner HP-L-20.8, Hexagon Metrology provides its customers with the most portable and productive scanning solution for a wide range of applications. Thanks to the quick and easy handling, the widest line length and highest scan rate in its product class, the HP-L-20.8 gives its users increased productivity with shorter measuring times,” says Stephan Amann, product line manager for Portable Measur Arms at Hexagon Metrology.
The HP-L-20.8 is fully integrated with the ROMER Absolute Arm and does not require additional cables or external controllers thanks to the new feature pack. Manual setting of the laser power according to the surface color or reflectivity is not required as the patented HP-L scanning technology automatically adapts in real time. The multi-sensor technology, seamless change between scanning and probing at the touch of a button, and the repeatable mounting for quick removal and assembly without scanner recalibration makes the new HP-L-20.8 laser scanner the best counterpart for external scanning applications with the ROMER Absolute Arm.
