January 20, 2016 - Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced 77 series Absolute Arm portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM). The 77 series is designed to provide absolute accuracy for high-end 3D measurement applications. The Absolute Arm is available in five sizes from 2.5 m to 4.5 m measuring volumes.
The 77 series can be switched on and used immediately without warm-up or referencing. Probe changes can also be made without recalibration to maximize flexibility on the job. Acoustic and haptic operator feedback facilitate usage in harsh shop-floor environments. The standard, versatile 3000 N magnetic base offers mounting options for all kinds of applications and part sizes.
77 Series arms are compatible with all Hexagon laser scanners, including the RS3 integrated scanner and the HP-L-20.8 and HP-L-8.9 external units, and are available in 6- and 7-axis configurations. The 6-axis models are ideal for touch-probe measurement, while the 7-axis design is well suited for high-speed laser scanning.
